How the AI study tool provides individualized help

Instant Explanations

When a student is reading their eTextbook and finds a section or concept challenging, the AI tool generates a simplified explanation to help break down the complex material.

On-Demand Summaries

For help focusing on the key topics and ideas in their reading, students can select a chapter or section in their Pearson eText and the AI tool will generate a summary.

Choose-Your-Own Practice

A student can ask the AI tool for multiple-choice or short-answer questions related to a specific chapter or topic. AI-generated practice then helps address gaps in the student’s knowledge to improve learning.

Flashcards and Notes

For further practice and study, students can generate flashcards and notes based on their chat interaction with the study tool.

"The AI study tool makes studying easier, faster, and more effective. It’s an all-in-one thing, your own personal professor whenever you need them.”

"I like that it's a conversation, not just a long paragraph. I enjoy the fact that we can respond and it gives an intelligent response back. It encourages you. It asks questions. If you're stuck, it explains. It's like talking to a live tutor."

— Student beta tester, Florida International University
