Quizlet Launches New AI-Powered Learning Assistant to Streamline Studying
The Learning Assistant combines learning science principles and machine learning technology to create study experiences that adapt to each learner for better recall and deeper understanding.
FREMONT, CA: Quizlet, the global learning platform known for its engaging AI-powered study tools, launched the Quizlet Learning Assistant to improve the studying experience for students. Now available to all Quizlet Plus subscribers, the Learning Assistant provides a guided and seamless learning journey to get students to mastery faster, making sure they don't waste time.
The Learning Assistant combines learning science principles and machine learning technology to create study experiences that adapt to each learner for better recall and deeper understanding. Considering the student's learning objectives and current knowledge state, the Learning Assistant powers personalized progress insights, study paths, and smart grading to help students reach their learning goals.
"We created the Learning Assistant because Quizlet is a company driven by learning science and we're obsessed with finding the best ways to help students study and learn more effectively," stated Nitin Gupta, vice president of product at Quizlet. "We know from listening to our users, that students are looking for structure and support to make meaningful progress, and that's why we're leveraging our machine learning capabilities with Natural Language Processing and other techniques to provide the most effective study tools out there."
Key features of the Learning Assistant include:
• Study paths: Studying can be more effective when it's designed for students' individual goals. Based on the results of a short diagnostic, the Learning Assistant offers a personalized study path. These paths adapt to the challenge level of individuals and predict the most efficient starting place for each study session.
• Smart grading: Learning science reveals that writing-in answers help students retain information better. The Learning Assistant utilizes Natural Language Processing (NLP) to interpret written answers and examines those answers based on their meaning instead of exact verbiage. This enhancement enables students to study concepts, not just vocabulary. Students have the capability of opt-in or out for this feature, depending on their preference for mastery and the content they are learning.
