Purpose and goal
The purpose of TalkMath is to give adults the opportunity to study mathematics together, and with tutoring from teachers, using the Internet, anywhere, anytime.
Expected results and effects
We will to create a digital platform specifically designed for learning mathematics online where students themselves, or with a teacher, can meet in real-time to study together. TalkMath is planned to consist of a communication tool with text, audio, and a shared digital whiteboard. We will develop features that are necessary in order to discuss mathematics, e.g. support to draw figures and write formulas. TalkMath will be able to be used as a standalone tool or through integration with other learning platforms and MOOC courses, using open standards.
Planned approach and implementation
The project is planned to be based on an iterative development process based on focus groups, interviews and analysis of user data. The platform will be continuously developed and evaluated in interaction with the users. We will have a product ready for public release and an appropriate funding model ready by the end of this project.
