Co-Teacher is a web-based SaaS-platform, built on artificial intelligence provided by IBM Watson. Co-Teacher improves the quality of education while saving schools’ resources by reducing teachers’ workload, allowing them to build a better relationship with their students and decreasing drop-out students in the process.
Co-Teacher works as a middle man between students and teachers by acting as a virtual teaching assistant and study tutor. The platform has various features, including a chatbot for quick information access and text analysis tools for evaluating and grading course assignments. Finally, Co-Teacher’s time- and course management tools help each student create a learning plan that suits their needs.
We have found global similarities in the educational and economic challenges faced by schools, which lead us to developing our scaling solution. The main problems are:
Inside Co-Teacher’s course management area, teachers can set automated reminders, questionnaires and assignments for students. Course feedback, midterm evaluations and learning analytics can all be done easily on the platform. In this way, Information about the learning experience and progress can flow between student and teacher with little effort and no delays.
Supported by IBM Watson’s natural language processing, Co-Teacher can read and summarize texts, assignments and academic materials. With a quick glance, teachers can pre-evaluate essays and students can search for references to use in their assignments.
Co-Teacher is integrated with major learning management systems, which allows data to move seamlessly between the platforms. Co-Teachers functions can be accessed through the existing LMS used by your school.
Co-Teacher’s chatbot offer instant access to relevant information related to studies. Available online, students can get information wherever and whenever they need it, without the restrictions of office hours. Easy access to information keeps students motivated, helps them graduate on time and leads to fewer drop-outs. Machine learning algorithms allow chatbot to adapt to the context of each school and interaction to provide personalized support to every student.
The platform’s AI learns from the feedback of both teachers and students. Students suggest improvements to the responses they receive, which are in turn validated by teachers. In this way, Co-Teacher improves with each interaction, becoming increasingly better at independently managing course implementations and counselling students.
Co-Teacher decreases the amount of routine-based work in teaching, enabling teachers to spend more time with their students and develop their pedagogy. Co-Teacher offers more individual insights by visualizing each student’s progress, detecting the ones in danger of falling behind. In this way, Co-Teacher allows the right support to find the right student before problems have a chance to compound.
Because course feedback can be collected and processed easily and quickly, teaching can be adjusted even while the course is still underway. This dialogue ensures that teachers are always up-to-date about their students’ needs.
Co-Teacher offers tools for general study management to help students stay on their planned study track and graduate on time. Co-Teacher improves transparency by offering counsel and access to information on-demand. Questions about topics like course contents and student exchange options are quickly resolved and motivation is preserved.
Co-Teacher allows students to see their personal progress and motivates them through virtual rewards. Co-Teacher also enables students to learn socially by connecting students into peer-groups, accelerating the learning process for everyone involved
The platform can be used to run courses completely online with a high level of automation. Courses can then be offered to larger groups of students without a corresponding increase in costs or compromises in quality. Co-Teacher guides students through the course with reminders and counsel to ensure completion of the course on time.
