Add AI-suggested questions (QGen) to a course

  • Updated

You can use our 360Learning AI engine to generate questions in a course, based on the text contents of your cheat sheets, or the subtitles of your videos. We call this mechanism QGen.

If you edit the source (change the text of the cheat sheet, or upload a new video and automatically generate the subtitles again), the list of suggested questions will update automatically. This might take up to 1 minute, depending on the length and complexity of the text.

The number of AI-suggested questions depends on the length of the text or video. The average is 5 questions per activity, and usually less than 10.

Activate AI-suggested questions on your platform

You can request access to the feature by clicking YES, PLEASE at the end of the popup presenting the feature, and enter your email in the form.

You can also contact your Client Success Partner (CSP) to request manual activation.

Add AI-suggested questions

Once AI-suggested questions are activated, you can select them from the question creation interface in the edition screen of a course.

  1. At the top of the homepage, click Courses.
  2. Click on a course.
  3. In the left sidebar, below the list of existing activities, click Add a question.
  4. At the top, click the tab Suggested questions.
    • If the tab doesn’t appear, make sure the course language (in the gear cog.svg Course Settings at the top right) is set to English.
  5. On the left, click on an activity to display the related questions.
    • The questions are generated based on the text of the cheat sheet, or the automatically generated subtitles of the recorded/uploaded video. Images or files in the cheat sheet are not taken into account.
    • See the section Accepted videos for more details on videos accepted by QGen.
    • If there are no questions, make sure that the field Content of the cheat sheet or the video subtitles contain text in English, between 30 and 1,000 words, and does not include potentially sensitive topics.
  6. At the top of the list of questions, filter by Single Selection or Yes / No.
  7. Check the questions you want to add to the course (you can add a mix of single selection and yes / no questions).
  8. At the bottom right, click ADD N QUESTIONS  (N being the number of selected questions).

The questions are added directly under the related activity (first the Single Selection questions, then the Yes / No questions).

If you added Single Selection questions, you should add at least one more answer to make the question valid (the correct option is already added). Yes / No questions are automatically linked to their correct answer.

Accepted videos

We take into account three types of videos:

  • video files uploaded in the banner of a cheat sheet (between the title and the content in the edition screen);
  • video files uploaded as document activities, by clicking Add a document in the left sidebar of a course in the edition screen;
  • videos recorded directly on the platform, by clicking Add a recording in the left sidebar of a course in the edition screen.

Those videos must have subtitles in English, automatically generated by the platform. If needed, you can force-generate them again by clicking gear cog.svg Settings at the top right of the video, then Generate subtitles again.

The following videos are not taken into account in QGen:

  • Videos hosted elsewhere than the platform (such as YouTube, Vimeo, or Google Drive).
  • Videos without subtitles, or with manually uploaded subtitles.
  • Videos with automatically generated subtitles in a language other than English.
