Project Summary:

The vision of Crowdlearning is that of a self-sustaining collaborative learning environment, where the participants - students of a given subject - intermittently take on the roles of (1) the creators of subject-focused problems (problem statements/formulations with answer alternatives, hints, correct answers with explanations, etc.), (2) problem quality evaluators, and (3) problem solvers, all on an anonymized gamified online platform.
