Welcome to Lookit’s documentation!

The Lookit codebase contains two main repositories:

  • lookit-api, a Django application that houses what were previously separate Experimenter and Lookit applications. Experimenter is a platform for designing and administering research studies, meant for researchers. The Lookit platform is participant-facing, where users can signup and take part in studies.
  • ember-lookit-frameplayer, an Ember app that runs studies in the web browser

The documentation you are reading now lives in lookit-docs.

It has been jointly developed by MIT and the Center for Open Science.
