This cloud-based learning platform helps people quickly learn new skills by practicing them with Artificial Intelligence (AI) avatars in immersive simulations that reflect authentic scenarios. Enskill, developed by Alelo, has speech and language technology that enables avatars to respond to a variety of learner utterances. It provides realistic practice, immediate feedback, and personalized learning. A student’s specific responses to the avatar direct the simulation’s path, creating a unique experience for each student and each practice session. Asynchronous practice with avatars for language learners is enjoyable and motivating, while building proficiency, confidence, and fluency.
An Instructor Dashboard helps instructors track learner progress toward proficiency. Teachers spend less time on assessments and rote practice sessions, giving them more time for classroom instruction.
Approximately 500,000 military personnel have used Enskill to learn foreign languages and cultures (interesting story). Students at the college and secondary level are using it to improve their spoken English skills. Avatars mimic the culture, behavior, and gestures of native speakers, providing deep language immersion. The solution is now being used in workforce development, to retrain underemployed workers to become community health workers. Trainees complete training courses in half the time of conventional training programs, and are able to place right away in living-wage jobs.
Team Alelo was a Semifinalist in the XPRIZE Rapid Reskilling competition, and was a Cool Tool Finalist for “Best Artificial Intelligence (AI) Solution” as part of The EdTech Awards 2022 from EdTech Digest. Learn more.
