Challenge and goal:

AI is definitly in use by the students, but not always in the best way. Many issues can be brought on the subject, including ethical problems. The challenge is to help students to use AI in a better and acceptable way.

AI has not been used by many teachers, so they need to be aware of its potential and drawbacks. Providing teachers with AI tools that can assist in teaching is also a challenge.

The goal is to develop AI-based teaching and learning tools that are specifically tailored for theoretical classes.

Topic of the user case:

 Adapting AI tools to lectures, covering specific class aspects, from both the teacher's and student's perspectives, to implement collaborative teaching and learning.
