What is NOLEJ?

NOLEJ is an AI-powered tool that enables instructors to quickly create interactive online learning materials from content, such as text, video, audio, or web pages. NOLEJ uses OpenAI's large language model to analyze the content and generate various assessments and activities, such as quizzes, flashcards, games, and interactive videos. The learning materials created by NOLEJ can be brought into other learning platforms, such as Canvas.

 Review and curate the materials generated for quality, accuracy, and alignment with your learning outcomes.

 Don't use the materials generated for summative and/or high-stakes assessments (e.g., midterm and final exams).

 Don’t provide the generated materials to students without reviewing them.

 Provide guidance to students on how to effectively using the NOLEJ-generated activities in your course.

 Don't upload content to NOLEJ that you don't have the permission to.
