The Virtual Coach in your platform is your proactive learning coach, who can guide and steer you continuously through your learning activities and your work within your learning platform. Discover all the features of the Virtual Coach.
This Virtual Coach feature is available for English content only.
This article will guide you to better interact with your Virtual Coach, in particular, it will indicate different types of questions you could ask in order to test your knowledge of the various contents you have consulted and acquired.
Asking and Answering Quizzes
After completing the training materials of the formal courses in your platform, the Virtual Coach will help you in retaining what you have learned by asking you questions with multiple-choice answers from time to time. Quizzes are proposed according to a schedule that uses established neuroscience principles to maximize recall and retention. This learning retention strategy is based on flashcard memorization techniques and helps you in keeping better memory of the content of your courses.
At this time, quizzes are available for English training material only. If your selected language is either Italian or French, although the Virtual Coach can talk to you in Italian and French, at the moment, it’ll be able to propose quizzes only for the English training material you have completed, and not for the Italian and French content.
When your answer is wrong, the Virtual Coach will propose the same quiz card in the next future according to a schedule that is computed based on established neuroscience principles, until it makes sure you have properly retained the information. After you answer a question, the Virtual Coach will ask you if you want to continue your quiz session with other questions. The number of quizzes available to each learner depends on the number of training materials completed by the learner and on the number of quizzes generated for each training material. Please note that some training materials may not generate quizzes, so it may happen that the Virtual Coach will never ask you quizzes about some of the training materials you have completed. The number of quizzes will increase over time.
This feature is currently available as a Beta. As such, you may experience some issues while using it. If this happens (for example, you think you have appropriately answered but the Virtual Coach has marked your answer as wrong, or vice versa), feel free to inform us about it by clicking on the Report Problem button. Your feedback will help in the curation of the quiz card repository and will enable the Virtual Coach to improve its quiz generation capabilities over time.
In order for your Virtual Coach to be able to quickly and easily understand your desire to receive quizzes from it to test your preparation, these are the questions you could ask it:
- Let's start a quiz
- Can you ask me a question about my courses?
- Ask me a question
- Quiz me
- I would like you to ask me a question
- Go on and ask me a question
