UNSW to open source its Microsoft classroom platform on GitHub


The University of New South Wales (UNSW) has announced that it will begin open sourcing its cloud-based classroom platform built on Office Education, and releasing it on GitHub this December, starting with its artificial intelligence-driven chatbot, called Question. According to Dr David Kellerman, a senior lecturer at UNSW school of mechanical and manufacturing engineering, Question was developed on Microsoft’s bot framework to help ensure the thousands of online posts received from students were never missed.
