Nell is the name of the XO-3 Narrative Software effort.
Nell is a tablet-oriented education platform for children in the developing world. A modular narrative system guides learning, even for children far from educational infrastructure, and provides personalized instruction which grows with the child. Nell's design builds on experience with the Sugar Learning Platform.
We've written a short paper describing Nell's design (pdf).
Demo plan (briefly)
- Section 1 of the IDC'12 paper: draw letters and we tell you a story as they come to life
- "Tom Riddle's Diary": talk with an AIML chatbot by handwriting in your diary
- Wide Ruled Tutorial: story model editor that walks you through a tutorial of using it to write a story.
