Empowering active learning with AI for videos and PDFs

Fostering students’ proactive work, our goal is to empower teachers and students with a unique tool to explore two of the most common formats in the classroom: video and PDF. Unlike other platforms that simply rely on answering a, b, c type questions, Böxie promotes a more competency-based approach, placing the student at the center of their learning process.

The current educational landscape demands that students acquire digital and media literacy skills and also develop skills such as extracting main ideas, locating relevant information, analyzing, and synthesizing, etc. In a visually dominated era, it is essential that students know how to locate, understand, and evaluate content. Our application addresses this need effectively and creatively.

One of the most outstanding aspects of Böxie is its ability to automatically generate auto graded assignments. Students watch the video or PDF and answer questions posed by the AI, without the need for direct teacher intervention. The artificial intelligence itself generates and evaluates these assignments, relieving the teacher’s workload. In addition, it provides immediate feedback, allowing students to effectively and autonomously improve their understanding, and teachers to receive detailed reports on individual performance and individual or group statistics.

Böxie offers two types of autograded activities to enrich learning in both video and PDF formats: ‘write your answer’ assignments and underline assignments. In writing assignments, students answer open-ended questions using natural language, and the artificial intelligence is responsible for evaluating and providing personalized feedback, freeing the teacher from this assignment. In underline assignments, students test their understanding by underlining the correct answer from four options generated by AI, either in a PDF document or in an interactive video.

Furthermore, Böxie allows you to convert videos and PDFs into interactive educational activities. These generic assignments allow students to develop essential skills, such as identifying main ideas, secondary ideas, searching for information, and locating evidence, while watching the video. Additionally, these assignments can be further enriched by activating the Böxie comprehension assistant, an artificial intelligence that operates in a safe and controlled environment for education. Böxie generates questions that challenge and stimulate the student’s understanding, creating a more dynamic learning environment.

The integration of artificial intelligence in the classroom through Böxie is a testament to the transformative potential of technology in education. With these functionalities, teachers can free up valuable time previously spent on mechanical assignments of preparation and correction, and focus on formative assessments of greater impact. AI is paving the way for a more student-centered approach and the development of essential skills for a digital world. In short, Böxie stands as an essential tool in the educational revolution, equipping teachers and students with the necessary tools to thrive in an ever-evolving learning environment.
