First release planned for May, 2019.
Skilling is open-source software for making and running skills courses. Skills are things like programming, auditing, and mathematics.
We know a lot about how brains learn. For example, new knowledge builds on existing knowledge. At the start of a new lesson, triggering knowledge from prior lessons helps students remember new information. How do you prime existing knowledge? Maybe with a short quiz.
Skilling is a toolkit for making courses that use high-impact practices, like priming existing knowledge with a quiz. Other high-impact practices include giving personal formative feedback, and encouraging metacognition.
Here are some practices that course designers might think about. Skilling can help with all of them.
