How WhoTeach was born

WhoTeach® borns in 2015 from our CEO Francesco Epifania’s doctoral thesis in computer science, with the ambition of creating an innovative tool, able to revolutionize the e-learning world through an intelligent social network, in order to stimulate the teaching of entrepreneurship in the European education system.

The study was aimed at extending the classic structure of Learning Management System through the synergy between a component based on Artificial Intelligence e and a Social Network dedicated to knowledge sharing (WhoTeach Social).

In particular, this research led to a combination of computer technologies: Artificial Intelligence, Social Networking, Content Management, Database Management till the exploitation of cognitive systems in the context of web 4.0.

The platform, initially developed as a case study in the European NETT project in collaboration with university teachers and foreign partners, has moved from its original goal of creating a social network, to the one of creating an integrated digital learning platform in which it is possible to create, edit, insert and deliver high quality courses in any format, thanks to the synergy between its components.

This is how WhoTeach was born!
