I started a nonprofit at UC Davis that aims to teach robotics virtually. A lot of students don't have access to robotics curriculum, especially in rural and other underserved communities. This platform we developed today will adapt curriculum based on a current student’s skill level, allowing to reinforce concepts that students’ may not completely understand. Specifically, we will build an adaptive learning algorithm to assess student’s progress and modify the pace and content of the materials presented. This work will build on the literature on Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) [Corbett 1997]. We will use computer-generated algorithms to identify individual learner ‘needs’ and present content based on the recorded data. Our proposal is to adapt this type of technology to the STEM fields.
What it does
It is a learning platform that incorporates Bayesian Learning and Artificial Intelligence in order to predict a student's currents
How I built it
I build backend on python and frontend with react.js.
Challenges I ran into
I ran into time challenges in terms of not finishing the entire project.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Finishing a working server
What I learned
What's next for natcar-platform
Build this out with the additions from UC Davis, TI, Intel, and CITRIS
