Webinar: Applying AI-Generated Practice to Textbooks to Improve Teaching and Learning

Join Dr. Kelly Odenweller (COMST) and Dr. Rachel Van Campenhout (VitalSource) as they present their research surrounding the effective use of artificial intelligence (AI) within digital textbooks, utilizing the BookShelf CoachMe tool at Iowa State University.  This tool and study were initiated from VitalSource’s award-winning research on the effectiveness of the “Doer Effect”, a Learn-by-Doing approach based on learning science that improves the overall study experience by helping students discover what they know and where to focus next. The reading and practice data from our study helped us answer the questions “Are they reading the book?” and “How are students using their learning resource?”

Participants can expect:

  • Review and results of the study conducted in Dr. Odenweller’s courses
  • Demonstration of the AI in action with the BookShelf CoachMe tool and analytics for faculty
  • Receive information on how to implement in future courses
