AI-powered chatbot supports student success at TMU


A new AI-powered chatbot created by Toronto Metropolitan University Professor Dr Sean Wise is providing students with feedback to help them prepare for exams. ProfBot™ is powered by ChatGPT and uses an interface similar to a chat tool. The chatbot quizzes students on course material, and students “text” with the AI by inputting answers to questions. The AI then provides feedback about how students can improve and suggests areas of focus. “We know there is a strong correlation between student engagement and student success, and that was true here,” said Wise, who noted that students who used ProfBot™ improved more on their final exams than their peers who had not used it.
