Arbital requisites

A requisite is the unit of knowledge in Arbital. Any page can be used as a requisite. When it is, it’ll have additional per-user state associated with it: “not known”, “known”, and “wanted.” By default, all new users’ requisites are in the “not known” state.

Requisites are most often used when a page requires prior understanding of some topic or when a page teaches some topic. Arbital uses these connections to create dynamic paths that are tailored to each user. As the user goes through the path, they acquire the requisites that each page teaches them.

The “wanted” state is used to track the requisites the user is interested in. Usually this is done by using questionnaires. This allows further fine-tuning of the generated path.
