After a successful public launch in August, artificial intelligence powered virtual teachers from Otermans Institute are now teaching an entire nine-lesson course in universities and institutions across four continents.

The Otermans AI teachers not only teach and test the learners, but also create the course content. Thanks to Otermans' fine-tuned language model, virtual education becomes a dynamic, two-way conversation between students and their AI teachers.

So far, Otermans has supported more than 35,000 learners, working with governments and UN bodies in 13 countries to provide training and education using AI. The company plans to bring its AI-powered teaching capabilities to 40 universities by September and conduct trials on how OIAI can be embedded into existing digital learning platforms.

Otermans Institute deployed its AI teachers to support the Women in STEAM Initiative in Kenya and Zambia. "Africa is hungry for the emerging technologies, and there's no reason why Africans should be left behind in this fast-paced 21st-century economy. As the founder of Women in STEAM initiative and partnering with Otermans Institute we have exposed educators and students to AI teachers, and this has been one rewarding experience. We look forward to continuing impacting more African educators to embrace the emerging technologies such as AI." said Caroline Nyaga.

"The digital human teachers developed by Otermans Institute possess a human-like appearance and voice, allowing them to seamlessly interact with students using voice and text inputs," Otermans Co-founder Dev Aditya said in a statement. "Through conversations with the students, our AI teachers can then tailor their lessons to individual student needs, providing real-time responses to questions and delivering personalized feedback."
