How Topic Copilot works

We built Topic Copilot to help you save time in generating new topic ideas. The feature works by taking inputs from the educator, like keywords, student age range and language specification, and produces five question prompts using Azure OpenAI services. From the list of topic suggestions, educators can choose one of the topic suggestions and edit to their liking before posting or input a new set of keywords to generate a new list of ideas.

Prior to introducing this feature, the Flip team took great care to review potential outputs and protect our community from risk, including:

  • Topic Copilot is only accessible to educators and is designed to provide suggestions appropriate for classroom use.  
  • Topic suggestions provided by Topic Copilot will only be shown to students if published by the educator. 
  • The topic suggestion selected by the educator is run through our moderation services in the Topic Form to ensure a safe learning space for our community.

Because content in Topic Copilot is generated by AI, it might contain inaccuracies or sensitive material, so please be sure to verify information. If inappropriate keywords are entered into Topic Copilot, there is risk that inappropriate topic suggestions may appear so please use this tool responsibly, and do not attempt to use the tool outside of its intended use within Flip.

And as always, our Flip team is here to support you. If you receive unexpected results, please send us feedback so we can make it better.
