World’s leading library for interactive educational games, TinyTap launches AI-based content generation and deepens its strategic partnerships with Web 3 firm Open Campus.
Following a ten-year spell as one of the leading edtech platforms, TinyTap, a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, is entering a new technological development stage, introducing novel AI features to enhance educational content creation on its platform. According to a release this Wednesday, TinyTap has launched the ‘prompt to game’ AI beta today and is expected to launch its ‘prompt to text/image’ AI generator later next month. Moreover, users and creators on the platform can leverage the ‘Practice Anywhere’ AI, which allows creators to turn any form of media into educational games and courses.
In addition, TinyTap, one of the launch partners of Open Campus, announced the strengthening of the two firms’ partnership in the future and the integration of Publisher NFTs and $EDU tokens on TinyTap.
“We are excited to unveil our AI roadmap, which will redefine how teachers and parents create engaging and interactive educational content for children,” Yogev Shelly, CEO of TinyTap, said. “With its new AI-powered functions, TinyTap will make content creation faster and more accessible, enabling teachers and parents to provide a personalized learning experience for each child."
TinyTap’s Roadmap for AI Integration
TinyTap is an online edtech platform that allows millions of users to generate educational courses and interactive games on a no-code platform. Since its launch in 2012, TinyTap has grown into the most prominent educational library for games, with companies such as Sesame Street and Oxford University Press creating their own games. With the integration of AI technology, TinyTap will empower even more creators to generate educational content and games more efficiently and quickly.
According to the team statement, the decision to pivot to AI comes in light of the recent developments in the industry (just check Chat GPT’s rise) and its mission to provide a better user experience. To kick off the AI revolution on the platform, TinyTap is launching the “Prompt to Game” beta feature, allowing anyone to enter a topic prompt in a search box, and TinyTap’s AI creates a complete game from the topic provided, as this live demo shows.
“As in various other fields, AI presents some terrific opportunities for edtech. Integrating AI into TinyTap allows us to scale up educational opportunities with customised programs tailored for each learner,” Yat Siu, co-founder and executive chairman of Animoca Brands, said.
Additionally, the “Prompt to Text/Image” is set to launch this September. The team states that this feature aims to allow creators, educators and teachers to generate graphics, texts, and images from simple topic prompts. This will gradually enhance their courses and help them create more interesting lessons as the AI learns and adapts.
“More efficiently produced content means a larger education library, which will also help teachers earn more on TinyTap,” Siu added.
If the beta phase of TinyTap’s AI engines is successful, the development team will also launch the “Practice Anywhere” tools to enable creators to learn more about creating content using AI content generators. In addition, these tools can be used to “turn existing media into learning material”. For example, users paste the URL link of an educational video into the tool, and the AI transcribes the video, creates a lesson, and produces real-time TinyTap games.
TinyTap integrates $EDU tokens and Publisher NFTs
Apart from AI, TinyTap is also shifting its attention towards Web 3.0, strengthening its relationship with Open Campus. According to the statement, starting next quarter, holders of Open Campus NFTs and its native, $EDU token will be able to spend their digital assets to create TinyTap games and courses.
These games can then be converted or minted into Publisher NFTs, which can be sold on the Open Campus marketplace. This gives the creator an opportunity to raise money from “co-publishers” who can purchase the NFT in return for a share of the revenue the content generates. By introducing Publisher NFTs, creators on TinyTap will receive a fair share of earnings generated by their content while injecting new liquidity into the edtech sector.
