TinyTap AI “Prompt-to-Game” BETA: live now
TinyTap today released a new AI “Prompt-to-Game” feature at https://www.tinytap.com/ai. The feature allows everyone to enter a topic prompt into the TinyTap AI, which in a few minutes will generate a complete TinyTap educational game to guide children in learning that topic. In order to generate and validate a game, the TinyTap AI draws on more than 10 years of TinyTap data based on a learning architecture of over 250,000 games, millions of activities, and more than 170 million plays.

TinyTap AI “Prompt-to-Text/Image”: September 2023
Starting in September 2023, TinyTap creators will be able to access the AI “Prompt-to-Text/Image” functionality, a new AI feature on the TinyTap creation tool that will allow creators to generate dynamic imagery to fit their specific needs and elevate their educational games with new and exciting graphics in a faster way.
Deeper integration with Open Campus Protocol: Q4 2023
Starting in Q4 2023, participating holders of Open Campus NFT and EDU tokens will be able to use the Open Campus Protocol to spend EDU tokens to mint TinyTap games (both standard and AI-enhanced games) that they create into Publisher NFTs. These Publisher NFTs will be made available for purchase on Open Campus where they can be acquired by interested co-publishers, thus injecting new liquidity into the education sector while enabling teachers to receive a fair share of earnings generated by their content.
TinyTap AI “Practice Anywhere” tools BETA: 2024
In the second stage of its AI strategy, TinyTap will allow parents and teachers to create with "Practice Anywhere" AI tools, which can be used to turn existing media into learning material. For instance, creators can enter the URL of an educational YouTube video, and TinyTap AI will transcribe its content and produce in real-time TinyTap games that allow kids to practice what was taught in that video. Powered by sound-to-text, text interpretation, and proprietary TinyTap generative-AI drawing on its learning architecture and education content database, this feature is set to revolutionize the way children reinforce their learning beyond the classroom.
With over 10 million registered users and 100,000 educators who have generated education courses on its no-code platform, for more than a decade TinyTap has been a pioneer in turning children’s screen time into an active learning experience. Animoca Brands views the integration of AI into the TinyTap platform as a transformative advancement in edtech, empowering creators to generate educational games even more easily and quickly than previously possible.
Yat Siu, co-founder and executive chairman of Animoca Brands, which is also a launch partner of Open Campus, said: “As in various other fields, AI presents some terrific opportunities for edtech. Integrating AI into TinyTap allows us to scale up educational opportunities with customized programs tailored for each learner. More efficiently produced content means a larger education library, which will also help teachers to earn more on TinyTap.”
He added, “TinyTap's AI roadmap marks a pivotal moment in the future of education. Through the power of AI and the strategic partnership with Open Campus, TinyTap is committed to creating innovative and accessible learning experiences that enrich the lives of children worldwide, and allowing creators to earn a fair share from their creation.”
Yogev Shelly, CEO of TinyTap, stated "We are excited to unveil our AI roadmap, which will redefine the way teachers and parents create engaging and interactive educational content for children. With its new AI-powered functions, TinyTap will make content creation faster and more accessible, enabling teachers and parents to provide a personalized learning experience for each child."
