WATERLOO, ONTARIO and ORLANDO – May 17, 2022 – Axonify, a leader in frontline employee training and communications, today unveiled its latest solution, Content Assistant. An AI-powered question-writing tool within the Axonify training platform, Content Assistant helps instructional designers by cutting down the time it takes to efficiently create multiple choice questions. The new Content Assistant tool and expanded Content Marketplace support Axonify’s ongoing mission to assist frontline companies with their efforts to build and deploy learning content that keeps pace with today’s rapidly changing business environments.
“It’s a critical business imperative for frontline employers to have access to, create and deliver fun, engaging content that fits a business problem, in the flow of work and in the moment of need,” said Carol Leaman, CEO of Axonify. “As learning teams look to borrow, build and buy content, Content Assistant coupled with Content Marketplace gives them a results-driven, right-fit content approach.”
To drive behavior change, Content Assistant helps learning teams build meaningful questions that reinforce learning for existing content libraries and can reduce content development time by up to 30%. Through an easy upload of multiple source content file types (.txt, .docx, text-based .pdf), the tool’s AI extracts key learning points for review and generates reinforcement questions and answers.
