Chegg has recently partnered with Scale AI to provide a personalized learning assistant to students – in efforts to improve student outcomes.
The leading online learning company will combine the advantages of generative AI with their proprietary high-quality content to help improve their students' learning experience.
According to a release from Chegg, Scale AI is responsible for the data infrastructure for AI, to develop proprietary large language models (LLMs) that will provide students a generative AI experience applied to Chegg’s personalized learning assistant.
Scale AI Chief Product and Technology Officer, Arun Murthy, also pointed out that they help companies, such as Chegg, to “harness the transformative power of AI to take their vision from conception to completion by building domain-specific LLMS”.
With Chegg’s LLMs trained with Scale AI’s unique data sets, it was stated that they will be able to deliver a “significantly enhanced and differentiated learning experience” to students.
In the next two semesters, students will expect to see Chegg’s integration of AI to their platform with;
- A much simpler conversational interface
- More in-depth content
- Personalized learning and;
- Giving students the ability to automatically transform contents into study tools such as flashcards, study guides, and practice tests.
Chegg also emphasized their goal to help their students deal with barriers that impact student learning, such as stress, distraction, surface learning, and more.
“We have said for years that students’ challenges go way beyond academic needs and now, by leveraging advancements in artificial intelligence, we believe we can make a significant impact on reducing the nearly 40% of students who drop out of their higher education system, and the more than 50% that never enter.” Chegg CEO, Dan Rosensweig said.
In recent reports, Chegg and Scale AI have successfully pilot tested the upcoming AI experience for students and is set to be released in the fall.
The transformative power of AI continues to progress, to the point where a leading online learning platform, Chegg, integrated AI with their educational service. It comes to show that generative AI can be useful and advantageous to education.
