It’s always worth comparing a few tools against each other. Here’s an overview of what Stellar Labs’s AI boosted platform does - see how the alternatives stack up!
The Stellar Labs platform is unique in its focus on learning transfer. Co-founded by Stella Collins, the neuroscience for learning expert, it takes an evidence-based approach to designing and building learning journeys that help build skills, not just knowledge.
AI is used to support this transfer, not just churn out content.
Stellar Labs uses AI to:
✅ Suggest detailed behavioural outcomes (a.k.a transfer objectives) based on your audience and skills you wish to build
✅ Design and build courses based on the agreed objectives, using an evidence-based structure for the learning journey
✅ Bake in ingredients for learning transfer into every programme
✅ Generate questions for quizzes and spaced repetition, to help knowledge stick
