A unique AI-based Smart Authoring Tool (The Vision) will allow higher education teachers to create interactive, visually and didactically valuable courses that promote personalized learning and can be integrated into any learning management system. With just a few clicks, teachers can create the pages of the course, as with a website modular system. Chapters and subchapters can then be assigned to these pages with free or defined order. Afterwards, multimedia and examination elements (such as videos, audio, flash cards) can be dragged and dropped into the individual pages. What really sets the courses created by this tool apart, however, is their ability to dynamically update the students’ learning paths based on the input from the Chatbot Tutor (IO3). When the Chatbot Tutor is used in combination with the Smart Authoring Tool, each student’s course view will update based on their personalized needs. The more the students interact with the Chatbot Tutor, the more individual their content will be.
There is no shortage of authoring tools on the market for educators designing their courses. However, dynamic response systems accompanying students throughout their learning processes are currently very rare but are a central necessity to ensure effective, self-determined and optimized learning results.
Higher education teachers (HETs) are often being pulled in several directions and their digital literacy is usually not at the forefront of their professional development. Therefore, the learning management system (LMS) they utilize needs to be easy and quick to use, have quality tools that fit discipline-specific educational needs, allow the activation and engagement of the learners, align with their didactic objectives and provide scalability to save time.
The Smart Authoring Tool developed by VISION will be supported by artificial intelligence (AI) and will be specifically designed with the needs of HETs at the forefront. With the Smart Authoring Tool, teachers will be able to create interactive, visually and didactically valuable courses that they can export in standard formats through Scorm and integrate into any LMS their university is using. With just a few clicks, they can create the pages of the course, as with a website modular system.
