UD StudyAiDE

About this project

The objective of this project is to develop an internal Large Language Model using OpenAI or  similar AI models that can be trained using UD-owned intellectual property such as instructional videos from UD Capture, Canvas LMS pages, and supporting materials that instructors have already created for their courses. These resources can be customized to meet the specific needs of our students. By having a private, internal model, we can ensure that our tool is tailored to our student body, reflects our courses and programs, and can provide accurate and relevant responses.

About AI at UD

This project directly aligns with the University’s Strategic Pillar of Expanding Student Access & Success. This project also supports the charge from the Provost to develop “practices that harness the power of AI for teaching and learning while maintaining our commitments to academic integrity in the production and dissemination of knowledge.”

This project serves as a pioneering effort into the broader strategy of how emerging artificial intelligence (AI), generative AI, and large language model (LLM) technologies will be utilized at the University of Delaware and in the greater higher education landscape.

What is the timeline?

Summer 2023: Planning and prototyping is underway.
