Oppia is an online learning tool that enables anyone to easily create and share interactive activities (called 'explorations'). These activities simulate a one-on-one conversation with a tutor, making it possible for students to learn by doing and get feedback.
In addition to developing the Oppia platform, the team is also developing and piloting a set of free and effective lessons on basic mathematics. These lessons are targeted at learners who lack access to educational resources.
Oppia is written using Python and AngularJS, and is built on top of Google App Engine.
Please refer to the developer wiki for full installation instructions. This is just a short summary for developers who would like to contribute:
Create a new, empty folder called
opensource/within your home folder. Navigate to it (
cd opensource), then fork and clone the Oppia repo. This will create a new folder named
git checkout develop bash scripts/start.sh
