Abstract : Teach Ourselves is a custom-designed and developed online community in which students solve math and science word problems created by other students, and to create and share their own problems with peers. Teach Ourselves includes features that were inspired by recent research on the engaging properties of computer games, including the chance to earn points and badges, to compare progress with other users, and to engage in social activities such as communicating with peers and providing feedback.
