Many online resources are available to students. One site is Khan Academy, which allows users to watch educational videos and then solve problems. The site’s interactivity with the student is limited to evaluating the correctness of answers to problems or providing the solution. A-list Empire is creating educational content using a similar format to Khan Academy’s. The primary difference is that students are given an online worksheet to enter their step-by-step problem solving and artificial intelligence (AI) software then evaluates their work and points out students’ mistakes and how to correct them. An experiment compared the effectiveness of Khan Academy’s software to A-list Empire’s. On a post-test, students using A-list Empire’s software showed higher performance, and more so for difficult topics, and more consistently high performance than those using Khan Academy’s software. This suggests that AI can improve educational performance when added to video-based instruction.
