1 in 3 Brainly App Users Already Benefit From AI-Powered Features For Homework Help


As the education sector embraces AI, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 41.14% between 2022 and 2027, reaching a forecasted increase of $1 billion. Brainly is leading the revolution in AI, incorporating AI-powered technology into its educational app to ensure students have 24/7 access to personalized homework help. Coming in 2024 are productivity tools for teachers that will further empower them to save time while enabling more personalized student instruction.

Students are already immersed in using AI for homework help, test prep and overall studying. The use of Brainly's AI-powered features introduced earlier this year confirms this trend, with one in three Brainly mobile app users interacting with these features. According to a recent Brainly survey, nearly 80% of Brainly users believe AI will positively impact their educational journey. The top subjects for AI usage are math (38%), English (18%), social studies (17%), and science (15%).

"Platforms like YouTube, Netflix, and Amazon have AI integrated into them to help them make more informed decisions on what their customers are looking for, driving better outcomes for those businesses," said Bill Salak, Brainly CTO. "It's time we adapt that technology to education for students. We see that Brainly users who have tried our AI features tend to be overall more engaged students, which is a good prognostic for the more personalized learning experience that I enables."



A productivity tool for students and teachers

"Going forward, we must make sure we give our students the tools they will need going into a workforce with jobs that we can't predict," said Jennifer Cronk, an instructional technology staff developer and computer teacher. "We have to use technology as a learning tool. It must be integrated into our daily lives as educators because there's a high likelihood that any vocation out there will have a technology aspect. Students will need to know how to use it in a way that will give them the results they're looking for."


Brainly has consistently advocated that teachers should not fear AI or feel threatened by its capabilities and instead should be viewed as a tool to enhance learning. Brainly's new features aim to take it to a level few have experienced in public education, with productivity tools that help them achieve better student outcomes and education equality.

"By leveraging Brainly's AI-powered features, teachers will be able to use AI to gather data on whether students are absorbing lessons and provide feedback to teachers in real-time so they can adjust the lessons accordingly," said Salak. "This will enable teachers to truly personalize the learning experience for students. Also, the new productivity features will be a dramatic time-saving resource, allowing them to spend more time focusing on building educational relationships with their students instead of on administrative tasks."
