Machine Learning in Education

--Yoavfreund 11:30, 26 January 2016 (PST) The papers you read about intelligent tutors look very interesting! I suggest we schedule a time for you to give a talk to me and to the other students involved in this work on the subject of intelligent tutors. Can you come up with ideas for how to integrate intelligent tutors into our open-edx project?
