Scholar is a paradigm-changing ‘social knowledge’ technology, breaking new ground in several major areas:

Multimodal Meanings

Represent your knowledge using Scholar’s clutter-free and powerful web authoring tools in the Community dialogue area and the Creator web writing space. Include text, image, video, audio, dataset, or any other file.

Knowledge Evaluation Tools

Use customizable filters to evaluate knowledge, including rubric-based reviews, in-text annotations, knowledge and information surveys, and a natural language processing checker. Perspectives include self-evaluation, peer evaluation, and evaluation by the people (admins) coordinating knowledge communities.

Connect in Knowledge Communities

Join others in Scholar for knowledge and learning conversations, with optional feeds to Facebook and Twitter. In Scholar, the social glue is "peers" in dialogue and giving structured feedback in knowledge producing communities, rather than "friends" or "followers."

Common Ground has been building leading edge semantic publishing technologies since 2000.
