Research Title

Collaborative Learning Environment for edX




Anant Agarwal


Students using the edX platform dont yet have an effective way for realtime collaboration with each other. For my project, I will create an environment for a student in an edX course to quickly find and collaborate with another student working on the same material. The environment could be used for solving problem sets, discussing lectures, and social interaction. The environment will feature technologies such as realtime collaborative drawing, smartphones as peripherals, and smart pairing of students.


I worked as a development intern at Two Sigma Investments parallelizing their research tools. As an intern, I worked on the Cocoa Frameworks team at Apple and helped create the new Auto Layout system.
