We're constantly seeking ways to innovate and enhance our learning technology product to provide the best learning experience for our users. Today, we're excited to announce a major improvement to our suggested distractors feature: it is now powered by OpenAI's GPT-3, a state-of-the-art language model that can generate human-like language and understand complex relationships between concepts. This integration provides our users with a more sophisticated and nuanced learning experience.

We now use OpenAI's GPT-3 for Smarter Distractor Generation

Our Smart tools automatically derive quiz questions from text and video, reducing the time required to produce learning content by 50%. With GPT-3, Smart Answers instantly delivers even more complex and realistic distractors.

Distractors, or wrong answers, are essential to challenging multiple-choice questions, challenging learners to think about the correct answer. GPT-3's generative AI helps Smart Answers make more plausible distractors.

For example, in a quiz on the Allied invasion of Normandy, Smart Answers now suggests actual military operations contextually similar to "D-Day”- like "Operation Overlord” - instead of word variations like “B-Day” or “C-Day.”

Here are the benefits of improved distractor generation:

  1. More Engaging Learning: more nuanced distractors challenge learners to apply their knowledge and think critically.

  2. Enhanced Understanding: presenting more realistic distractors helps learners better understand the subject.

  3. Greater Efficiency: Smart Answers reduces the time and effort required to create effective multiple-choice questions.

We're excited about the potential of our improved suggested distractors feature powered by GPT-3 and the benefits it can bring to our users. Try it for yourself and experience the difference it makes to your learners.
