Explain Direct

[Explain Direct]

Open source technical solutions for analyzing, recommending, and querying open educational materials within the context of higher education

Finding the right information about something you don't yet understand in full yourself can be challenging, especially given the amount of information that is available today. In learning institutions it is important to facilitate exploration, so students can themselves find topics they find interesting or relevant. How do you find out which materials will allow students to quickly gain additional knowledge on a certain topic? Explain Direct does this by allowing students to either go deeper or broader. Given a set of educational resources, it will use state-of-the-art content analysis and recommendation techniques to provide material that combines the current topic with others, or dives deeper into the topic.

The project is developed by Feedback Fruits.

Jointly supported by:

Vietsch Foundation
NLnet foundation
