I’m a big fan of Quizizz, Blooket, and other similar game sites (see The Best Online Games Students Can Play In Private Virtual “Rooms”).

Several of them have begun to incorporate using Artificial Intelligence in their features, including – but not necessarily limited to – making it easier to create games.

Quizalize, one of the less popular game sites, was the first to incorporate AI in its free version. It’s a handy tool for making game-creation an easier process.

Kahoot! was next, though AI assistance only available in its paid version.

A new site called Gibbly lets you use AI in game-creation in its free version, and is planning to add other ways to use it.

Quizizz, my favorite, is just rolling out AI now.    Its AI features are more extensive than any of the other sites.  In addition to just asking it to create a quiz about any topic (which is really not necessary for a Quizizz user since it has a library of quizzes that is humongous), it will automatically create a quiz out of the content in any uploaded document or website url. Here’s a video about how it will be able to be used:

 

Because of this ability, I’m adding this info to THE “BEST” TOOLS FOR AUTOMATICALLY TURNING TEXTS & VIDEOS INTO INTERACTIVE LANGUAGE LEARNING TOOLS.

In my experiments with these sites so far, one shortcoming with their AI features now appear to be an inability to incorporate images. Visuals are an obviously important part of teaching ELLs, so AI will really help make my life, and the lives of ELL teachers everywhere, better when that ability is added in…..
