COD - 2/1/2012 - Sophia [Community]


Sophia is an academic community where everyone has access to learning that encompasses and supports the traditional classroom.


Sophia is a social teaching and learning platform that provides learners everywhere with access to a wealth of knowledge, help, instruction, standards-aligned content, and expertise.

What teachers can do with Sophia:

  • Provide differentiated instruction to support what is covered in the classroom.
  • Publish multimedia learning packets to engage students in a meaningful way.
  • Flip the classroom by assigning learning packets as homework to replace the daily lecture, leaving in-class time for working through problems, questions, and answers.
  • Create a private environment where members can share learning content and ideas, ask questions, and get answers.
  • Assigning students the creation of learning packets as a way to creatively demonstrate they understand a core concept.

Learners can use Sophia for homework help, to participate in study groups, and to help others.

Sophia connects learners, teachers, parents, and education experts to "encourage variety and creativity in teaching so that everyone can learn in a way that makes sense to them."
