When I have a question, I usually go on r/learnmath or r/learnmachinelearning. Sometimes, I understand the answer and sometimes I don't.
If I ask a question on Stack Overflow, the response to my question - if I even get one - is usually berating me for asking the question in the first place.
My goal is to get better answers from the questions I post online.
The best answersThe best answers I get online connect what I know to what I don't know.
A related concept: zone of proximal development
good questions → good answers
In order to get a good answer, I need to post a good question.
Good answers feel familiar
Good answers explain the unknown in terms of the known.
The question answering template: re-use the images and words from before to explain something new.
Answer templateThe question answerer should draw over/edit images submitted by the question asker.
Template improvement ideas
- Allow users to draw using mouse, face tracking, eye tracking, and keyboard
- Figure out how to label images with accessible text
