Vretta Partners with the Durham College’s AI/Hub to Support Student Engagement

9 April, 2019

Vretta is excited to partner with the AI/Hub, Durham College’s Hub for Applied Research in Artificial Intelligence for Business Solutions, to develop an advanced virtual NLP (Natural Language Processing) AI assistant to support student engagement on IntroMath.

Vretta’s courseware platform, IntroMath, has been supporting the assessment-for-learning experience in mathematics for students at post-secondary institutions across Canada for almost a decade. Through this partnership with the AI/Hub, Vretta is supporting the development and integration of an AI assistant for IntroMath that will intelligently learn and understand students’ usage of the platform and will provide them with the required technical guidance through their learning and assessment experience. This AI and NLP-backed virtual assistant will also aim to strengthen the user experience for students by significantly reducing the response time for queries.
