Edpuzzle gives A.I. a go
Edpuzzle, a tool that is well loved by some of our teachers, has recently announced the addition of AI-generated questions to their platform.
This new feature is designed to help you save time! The AI-generated questions are based on the content of the video lesson and are designed to test students’ comprehension and retention. Teachers can also add their own questions to the video, creating a custom learning experience for their students.
Canva is also embracing AI technology to improve its user experience and offer more advanced design tools. It suggests, for example, design elements based on the user’s preferences and past behavior. By analyzing the user’s historic data, Canva’s AI system can suggest color schemes, fonts, and other design elements.

Magic Design: effortlessly create personalized and fully customizable designs

Colleagues & Community Migration: From Google Currents to “Spaces” in Google Chat
Starting on May 11th (tomorrow), our Google Currents Colleagues & Community hub will became a “Space” in Google Chat. This migration is being forced by Google since Currents is being discontinued.
You will find the Colleagues & Community Space when you open Google Chat or Gmail, and open the “Spaces” section in the left navigation menu.
We can’t anticipate what this migration will do to existing posts, or whether the experience will need new guidelines under the new space, but we will get back to you with any updates shortly after the shift happens.
