Let's answer some commonly asked questions about Eduaide.


Eduaide is an application for AI-assisted instructional design. Our teacher-centered interface connects users with a suite of over 150 tools to help plan lessons, create learning resources, differentiate instruction, provide actionable and timely feedback, and automate administrative tasks. 

In short, the purpose of Eduaide is to align AI capabilities with well-established, evidence-based instructional methods and build an intuitive workspace for teachers to utilize those methods.

Generative AI refers to systems designed to create new content—whether it’s text, images, or audio—unlike, say, narrow AI, which primarily processes existing data for specific tasks like facial recognition, indexing web pages, recommending relevant content on a streaming platform, or playing games like Chess or Go. 

Eduaide’s workspace is built around Generative AI or, more specifically, Large Language Models (LLMs). LLMs are a subset of Generative AI focused on understanding and producing natural human language. This affordance of the technology is called Natural Language Processing (NLP). The capabilities of LLMs—translation, summarization, answering questions, and creating coherent and contextually relevant text based on prompts—arise from a training process involving massive datasets from various sources. 

Training an LLM is computationally demanding, requiring powerful hardware, and can take weeks to months. In short, and at risk of gross oversimplification, an LLM predicts the next word in a sequence given the previous words and continues in this way to generate sentences and paragraphs. The generation can be guided by various methods to control style, content, and coherence. As a result, it can generate original, realistic outputs based on the characteristics of its training, mimicking creativity in a way that's unique to this kind of technology.

Eduaide.Ai uses existing LLMs (OpenAI GPT 3.5 Turbo, GPT 4o, and Anthropic Claude 3 Haiku) and employs a range of strategies and techniques to constrain them within evidence-based instructional parameters. Keep an eye out for our Blog Post that details these efforts for constrained AI.

Instructional Design is a learner-centered process of designing, developing, and delivering evidence-based instructional materials and experiences, both digital and in-person, in a way that ideally most effectively helps the learner acquire and apply knowledge and skills to novel contexts. Practically, Instructional Design means applying the science of learning to the unique instructional context in which you operate.

When you first log into Eduaide.Ai, you'll see the Content Generator. Here, you can create a variety of instructional materials, including broad-based planning assistance, information objects, independent practice protocols, cooperative learning structures, gamification procedures, and questions for both formative and summative assessments.

To get started, simply select the type of resource you want to create, define the topic, objective, or standard you are addressing, and add the material to your workspace. From there, use our personalization tools and text editor to tailor the content to your specific needs. You can pair a resource with others to build a sequence of instruction. 

The rest of the workspace, including the Assistant, Feedback Bot, and Assessment Builder, operates in a similar way. Each tool is designed to streamline your workflow, helping you efficiently create, customize, and manage your educational materials. The main difference between the tools lies in your input and the type of work being done:

  • Content Generator: Create generative educational resources and learning objects.
  • Assistant: Automate rote administrative tasks and build templates for standard documents (Syllabus Starters, Substitute Plans, Behavior Intervention Plan Outlines, etc.)
  • Feedback Bot: Generate specific, timely, and constructive feedback reports on student work samples.
  • Assessment Builder: Directly align assessment items to specific objectives or standards.


Once you add a material to the workspace, it appears as a card on the right-hand side. You can click the pencil icon to edit the card's content. This gives you complete control over the material, allowing you to customize it to suit your needs. You can also rename the material at the top of the card for easier searching later.

The transform button (represented by a rocket ship) offers several helpful tools for differentiating instruction. You can translate texts, break paragraphs into smaller chunks, add headings, extract keywords, and more.

To export the card from the workspace, click the copy button. This locks the content in markdown format, ready to be used in any LMS or text editor of your choice. Everything you generate is saved to your history drive, which can be found in the nav bar on the far left of the screen.
