The problem we are addressing & how we solve it

Cognitive scientists have agreed for decades that our brains are very good at filtering out information it perceives as not useful [1]. If learners passively view videos, lectures, or read articles, they often only remember a small fraction a few hours later [2]. This is why it is essential learners interact meaningfully with the content they are trying to understand to make it stick [3]. Getting regular and timely feedback on retention and understanding also optimises learning further [4]. However, making interactive resources and marking manually with current available tools is extremely time consuming that tend to get out of date easily. With services like YouTube, video content is especially driving change in all aspects of learning with exponential growth in the last two decades.

Kwizie maximises the time efficiency to create interactive learning experiences and automate marking. Kwizie’s capabilities make retrieval practice and pretesting far more regular which optimises possibilities for formative assessment. For example, taking a quick pretest with Kwizie before you even start studying is a powerful way to learn better, even if you get every question wrong. Then practice the terms you missed.

Our story

Kwizie’s HQ is based in Helsinki, Finland where education is world renowned [5]. We fundamentally believe learning is essential in all aspects of our modern lives and is a fundamental force for change. What drives us it a passion for unleashing curiosity in everyone and to make learning stick through engaging interactions. We do this by building the ultimate AI enabled quiz maker for the information age.

Our core team members have decades of international experience in e-learning and technology from a wide range of contexts like universities, schools, professional learning, and more. We have all witnessed first-hand how time consuming it is to make video and text learning content interactive, engaging, up to date, and organised. For example, while platforms like Kahoot and Quizlet are well known and used widely throughout the world, users seldom generate new quality assessments from learning materials because of the hours of preparation time it takes to create them. And making quality assessments from rapidly changing content is challenging for video course creators in particular. That is why we created Kwizie – the ultimate AI enabled quiz maker for video and text-based content that instantly makes all learning content interactive and engaging with AI.
