6. Automating quizzes

Walden University and Google Cloud in August announced a new virtual tutor named “Julian,” The software is designed for students to check their learning comprehension without teachers needing to create additional materials.

Google worked with the online university to introduce the feature into its social work and education tracks, aiming to create assessments for areas with more open-ended answers. Using machine learning, Julian produces both short-form and multiple choice questions based on selected text or resources.
