Is Eduaide.Ai just a ChatGPT wrapper?
While Eduaide does use OpenAi products, our system is designed to be model agnostic. In other words, we can easily switch language models if a task or feature calls for it. Moreover, this flexibility enables us to be an assembler of various models—chaining together components in sequence—all structured to a simple and clean User Interface that broadens the busy professional teacher's access to the power and promise of Large Language Models and Generative AI for instructional design and planning.

How much does Eduaide.Ai cost?
Eduaide is free. However, we do restrict users to 300 content generations a month. We do this to balance operating costs with the need for a reliable and open planning tool for teachers. High-quality instructional materials should be universally accessible.
Does Eduaide.Ai only write in English?
Eduaide is accessible in 17 languages—Arabic, Cantonese, Croatian, English, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Spanish, Russian, and Vietnamese.

What is a "Generative Educational Resource?"
A Generative Educational Resource is any material used to support learning or teaching created in whole or in part by an autonomous system.
How do I save my creations?
All generated content saves automatically. Each piece of generated content comes in a "card." This workflow limits the mess of a single text field and offers modularity to make stacking and pairing resources easier. If you edit a piece of generated content, however, you will need to confirm your edits by clicking the check mark to save the revisions.
There is also a copy button on every card that allows you to export the text to your preferred word processor or shared drive.
What is the content generator, and how is it organized?
The content generator is for creating instructional objects and is organized into six categories.
Planning: The tools in this category are broad curricular tools that provide the user with structure and context for lesson development and instructional design. These resources include prior knowledge measures, tools for student engagement, and tools for assessment—formative and summative. In general, this category serves as an opportunity to brainstorm directions to design the instructional environment.
Information Objects: Learning objects to be used in presenting information and content to students like scripts for direct instruction and modeling worked examples, anchor charts, informative texts, and outlines for notes.
Independent Practice: Exercises and drills for students to apply to-be-learned concepts and materials in novel ways. These materials are designed to engage students in purposeful, direct practice.
Cooperative Learning: These resources frame the classroom as a collaborative learning environment. Materials in this category tend to be social and inquiry-based. Therefore, they are most useful with clear prior knowledge measures like the type offered in the planning category.
Gaming & Gamification: These resources are for developing instructional games or gamified learning environments. Some of these resources serve the basic function of allowing students to review content engagingly. This is a shortcoming we are working to overcome. Gaming and gamification have broad instructional implications that we seek to express in further updates.
- Questions & Assessments: Assess student learning in varying contexts with a range of question types. From the building blocks of formal assessments like multiple choice questions, fill-in-the-blank fields, and True/False statements to more abstract questions that engage students in effortful thinking or that challenge them to apply prior knowledge in novel contexts.
Is Eduaide.Ai FERPA and COPPA compliant?
Eduaide is FERPA and COPPA compliant. We never ask for or store any student's personally identifiable information. Eduaide is exclusively a teacher-facing platform focused on the lesson planning and instructional design workflow.
