Meet Oppia for An Interactive Learning
A new open source project named Meet Oppia has been launched by Google with an aim to create eLearning content. Now, create online interactive activities become easier with Oppia that Google describes explorations.

Multiple people across the world can build and contribute these activities or explorations. Those people don’t possess any programming language experience and knowledge. Essentially, Google wants their users can learn develop an interactive online activities or explorations through which other people can learn from. This is accomplished by Oppia by modeling a mentor, who pretense questions for the learner to answer.

After that, on the basis of the learner’s responses, the mentor decides the questions, feedbacks, whether to delve deeper, or whether to proceed to something new, or many other things, written at the official Google Open Source blog. What I like about the Oppia is it has ability to permit people around the globe for creating and collaborating on explorations. Furthermore, one can easily embed in any web page with the explorations created on an Oppia server.

“Oppia gathers data on how learners interact with it, making it easy for exploration authors to spot and fix shortcomings in an exploration. They would do this by logging in, finding an answer that many learners are giving but which the system is not responding to adequately, and creating a new learning path for it, based on what they would actually say if they were interacting in-person with the learner,” affirmed by the blog.

In addition, this feedback is used by Oppia for future learners. Considering the quality about Oppia, it can easily deal with numeric, text, and multiple choice inputs along with a code evaluator and clickable map. An extensible framework is also created by Google that enables developers to extend the range of input types that Oppia can recognize.
