After the successful public launch of The world’s first digital human teacher in August 2023 The Ottermans Institute (OI) has taken a bold step to transform the educational landscape with its AI-powered teachers now teaching a full 9-hour course at universities and institutions on four continents.
AI teachers not only teach and test learners, they also create course content. The new approach leads to a qualitative shift in the nature of teaching and learning.
Thanks to OIAI technology – an exact language model developed by the same organization – virtual and digital education can now overcome the limitations of traditional one-way teaching and become a dynamic two-way conversation between students and AI teachers.
The Arab American University (Palestine), Bahria University (Pakistan), Ibn Khaldun University (Turkey), the Catholic University of East Africa (Kenya), and the University of the Americas (Chile) are the latest pioneers to join this educational revolution and thus sets a precedent for other institutions across the world. around the world.
Otterman Institute founders Dr. “We will expand our AI-powered learning capabilities to 40 universities by September 2024,” Poldi Ottermans and Dev Aditya said. “We are also testing how to integrate OIAI into existing digital learning platforms.”
With over 80% of students completing the OIAI course as of November 2023 and a learner satisfaction rate of 94%, OIAI’s impact on digital education is promising.
So far OI has supported over 35,000 learners It has worked with governments and UN organizations in 13 countries to provide training and education using AI technology and bring professional development skills to the most disadvantaged areas.
The Ottermans Institute is currently using AI tutors to provide support Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEAM) initiative in Kenya and Zambia. “Africa is hungry for new technologies and there is no reason to leave Africans behind in this fast-paced economy of the 21st century. As the founder of the Women in STEAM initiative and in collaboration with the Ottermans Institute, we have connected teachers and students with AI tutors and it has been a very rewarding experience. We look forward to encouraging more African teachers to engage with new technologies such as artificial intelligence.”
The digital human tutors developed by the Ottermans Institute have a human-like appearance and voice, allowing them to seamlessly interact with students through voice and text input. “By talking to students, our AI teachers can tailor their lessons to the individual needs of students by answering questions in real-time and providing personalized feedback,” said co-founder Dev Aditya.
