Google launched an online tool named Oppia that helps anyone to crate interactive activities for teaching others. Currently its an open source project. The primary aim of Oppia is making it easy for anyone to create online interactive activities that others can learn from.

Here we go with Google’s announcement about Oppia.

We’re excited to announce Oppia, a project that aims to make it easy for anyone to create online interactive activities, called ‘explorations’, that others can learn from. Oppia does this by modeling a mentor who poses questions for the learner to answer. Based on the learner’s responses, the mentor decides what question to ask next, what feedback to give, whether to delve deeper, or whether to proceed to something new. You can think of this as a smart feedback system that tries to “teach a person to fish”, instead of simply revealing the correct answer or marking the submitted answer as wrong.

Google says Oppia knows how to deal with numeric, text, and multiple choice inputs, as well as some more specialized types such as a clickable map and a code evaluator.

Oppia is built with Python and AngularJS. Click here to download Oppia source code.
