Bodo Hoenen on Generative AI For Curriculum

Key Points

  • AI will radically empower educators to spend more quality time with learners. 

  • One of the best ways to demonstrate mastery is to teach the subject to two of their friends. This both shows mastery and propagates further learning in the community. 

  • Collective intelligence is a crucial part of how humans learn.

This episode is supported by our recent Artificial Intelligence publication which focuses on the ways in which AI is shaping teaching, leading and learning.

On this episode of the Getting Smart Podcast, Nate McClennen is joined by Bodo Hoeden co-founder and CEO of Nolej, a generative AI tool that automatically converts documents (Text, Video, Audio) into dynamic active learning content through the use of our AI. What used to take instructional designers hours, can now be done by anyone in minutes. 

Nolej is focused on doing the following: 

  1. Creating a tool that can generate bite-sized e-learning packages from any content in real-time. 
  2. Mapping these experiences into a multi-dimensional latent space – almost like a map of ignorance for search and visibility. 
  3. Building a GPS to help guide you through these learning experiences and to help you interact with mentors, experts and other learners. 

In this conversation, Nate and Bodo discuss the vast potential of AI, the past and future of collective intelligence, the ‘map of ignorance,’ the structure of Nolej and much more.
