Abstract

With the explosion of online learning technologies and increasing demands to make learning more accessible and effective for all, personalized and social learning has been a suggested method of addressing these challenges. We present mSchool, an open, scalable educational learning platform which addresses the challenges of learner & community centered open learning space. We study mSchool's effectiveness on knowledge discovery and management. The preliminary results suggest the straightforward design resulted in effective navigational support for learners.
