AI can support you as a student in many ways,
- Act as a "virtual study companion" ("or learning companion") who helps you as a student with structure and study planning. The AI support can act as a discussion partner and can help you cope with your studies.
- Practice and feedback: AI can give you the opportunity to practice your skills and get instant feedback, helping you improve and develop your skills over time.
- Writing support: AI can help you in your writing, for example by giving advice on structure, proofreading what has been written and suggesting changes and more.
- Summarize many texts quickly: It is possible to upload many texts and ask AI to summarize them.
- Act as a virtual note-taking support if you, as a student, find it difficult to take notes while listening to a lecture. AI can both transcribe audio recordings in their entirety and summarize the audio recording/recording in shorter points.
- Explain difficult texts: If you have difficulty understanding a text, AI can help.
- Translate texts from other languages: Texts in almost any language can be translated quickly.
- Suggest analysis methods: For example, different statistical methods.
Finally, AI can support you in reaching your study goals. But it is also very important that you have knowledge of risks and limitations and how you can use AI in an ethical, responsible and inclusive way.
Be especially careful to find out how (or if) you are allowed to use AI in different courses and course elements. Also be prepared to be able to report how you used AI in your submissions and more.
When you test new AI services, don't forget:
- Currently you often need to create private accounts to explore many of the new AI services on the market (and several cost money).
- Critical Thinking: Be aware that AI-generated material may contain inaccuracies, distortions, bias, and copyrighted material.
- Security awareness: Pay attention to security aspects when testing AI systems.
- Privacy Protection: Be careful about what information you share with AI to prevent the spread of sensitive and proprietary information.
