Chegg Introduces CheggMate, a New AI Friend Created Using GPT-4

The leading student-first connected learning platform, today announced CheggMate, a new AI enhanced learning service built with OpenAI’s most advanced model, GPT-4. CheggMate will leverage Chegg’s leading personalized learning platform, proprietary data set, and the advanced problem-solving capabilities of GPT-4, to create an AI conversational learning companion that will empower students to learn in real-time more effectively, and with greater accuracy than ever before.

AI Powered Learning

CheggMate will deliver personalized learning pathways, tailor-made quizzes and tests, give students context, and help guide each student’s learning journey. Students can input a query in any format, whether written text, photo, math query, or diagram. With CheggMate, they can ask new questions, get clarifications in different formats, break out the steps, and drill down into concepts they don’t understand.

“Students depend on Chegg’s high quality, accurate learning platform to assist them in mastering their subjects and understanding their course material. We believe the combination of Chegg’s proven ability to improve student outcomes, with the breakthrough technology of OpenAI and Chat GPT, will create the most powerful study companion for students around the world,” said Dan Rosensweig, CEO & President of Chegg, Inc. “CheggMate will enable students to have an instantaneous AI conversation that is personalized to their learning style and needs, supported by our substantial proven and reliable content library. CheggMate combines the best of AI and Chegg’s student-focused expertise and will be exclusively available on Chegg’s platform.”

“We believe AI has the potential to provide tailored learning experiences to everyone and improve the way people around the world learn,” said Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI. “We are very excited to work with Chegg, given their history as the leading student-first learning platform.”

In a recent study, 77% of Chegg customers said they are excited by AI chat-based learning support, but 85% of students said that they would prefer it if it is supported by human expertise.

Designed For Learning

The personalized, accurate, interactive AI companion will offer:

  • Instant conversational AI guided support, which enables personalized learning and understanding.
  • Instant quizzes to test their knowledge and get recommendations to help bridge knowledge gaps, and an ability to drill down into concepts they don’t understand.
  • Recommendations of content in different formats and levels of complexity tailored to a student’s needs.
  • The ability for students to pick up exactly where they left off or begin new learning interactions at any time.
  • Seamless integration of existing Chegg tools.

“AI provides an incredible opportunity for students to be aided by a digital companion that supports and enhances their learning and helps to prepare them for the future,” said Nina Huntemann, Ph.D, Chief Academic Officer of Chegg Inc. “Chegg understands learners like no one else. We are building generative AI into our powerful and proprietary learning tools to support students’ active engagement in their learning process.”
