Diderot Project

This project aims to develop algorithms and software for increasing the quality and accessibility of education by creating a platform for people to learn and to share their knowledge.  Diderot has two pillars---people and knowledge---and revolves around a highly interactive book, tools for creating content, and discussions.   Diderot runs fully on the cloud and requires no on-site resources, other than personal computing devices for users.   Diderot is rapidly evolving and has so far been used by more than a thousand students at Carnegie Mellon on a day to day basis.
