Talk, Tutor, Explore, Learn:
Intelligent Tutoring and Exploration for Robust Learning

iTalk2Learn is a 3 year collaborative European project (Nov 2012 – Oct 2015) with the aim of developing an open-source intelligent tutoring platform that supports maths learning for students aged 5 to 11.

Our use of cutting-edge technology will allow students to learn from a system in a more natural way than ever before. This will empower educators to deliver the right lesson at the right time for every child, enabling personalised learning at scale.

iTalk2Learn is an interdisciplinary project that pools expertise from machine learning, user modelling, intelligent tutoring systems, natural language processing, educational psychology and mathematics education.
