Berkeley Open Learning Technology (Bolt)

Bolt is a toolkit for web-based teaching and training. Its main features:

  • Bolt provides tools for statistically measuring and comparing the effectiveness of lessons, relative both to the entire student population and to subgroups based on demographics and other factors.
  • Bolt provides tools for making courses adaptive, based on student characteristics.
  • Bolt is based on PHP, a simple but powerful scripting language.

Thus, Bolt is designed for educational contexts in which there is a constant arrival of diverse students, and in which course developers want to continually analyze and improve the effectiveness of the teaching materials.
