Create jeopardy-style quiz games with AutoGen (AI)

Welcome to AutoGen! Driven by cutting-edge Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI), AutoGen automatically generates questions / answers for you based on topics and subtopics you provide. You can use AutoGen to generate partial or entire games, and then edit as needed. AutoGen can help you quickly create your Factile games while providing you with a broad range of questions you choose from specific to your topic.

To use AutoGen, you purchase “tokens” based on the number and complexity of the questions generated. AutoGen uses the generative AI engine from OpenAI and the tokens pay for that service. As a special welcome and for a limited time, we've credited your account with 1,000 free tokens, which should generate between 30 - 50 Factile questions. Additional tokens can be purchased by clicking on the Buy Tokens button in $5 increments ($5 buys 25,000 tokens).

How to generate questions using AutoGen

  3. Optionally select a grade level, and specify the number of questions to generate and the question type. Then enter the Topic and Subtopic for which you’d like to generate questions. The Topic should be broad and the Subtopic more specific. For example, Geography, Oceans as the Topic, Subtopic. Experiment with different phrasing for Topic and Subtopic to create more options from which to choose. For ex. Geography, Ocean sea creatures. For broad questions, you can use only a Topic without a Subtopic. For ex. Continents.

AutoGen FAQs & Guidelines

  1. To use tokens more efficiently

    Each time you click “Generate”, tokens are consumed. It is generally more efficient in token usage to generate more than one question when clicking “Generate”. We recommend generating 3-5 questions at a time while learning how to use AutoGen and generating 8-10 at a time when proficient.

  2. Types of questions that can be generated

    As of now, AutoGen can generate Factile and Choice questions (text only). However, you have the option to edit your questions and to add images, videos, and audio content as usual by using the edit feature after adding the question.

  3. Input parameters

    1. Topic

      You can select the Topic from the provided list or type in your own. We recommend adding a subtopic (separated by a comma after the topic) to help generate more specific questions. For example, to generate questions about the biology of a heart, type the broader topic (“biology”) followed by the more specific topic (“heart”): biology, heart. Or as another example that would generate questions about the history of presidents in the US: US history, presidents

    2. Grade (optional)

      You can optionally select a grade level to help generate questions aligned with the level desired.

    3. No. of Questions

      No. of Questions defines how many questions are generated each time you click “Generate”. Each time you click “Generate”, tokens are consumed as described above. It is generally more efficient in token usage to generate more than one questions when clicking “Generate”. We recommend generating 3-5 questions at a time while learning how to use AutoGen and generating 8-10 at a time when proficient.

    4. Question Type

      The Question Type defines the format of the questions and answers. “Factile” will generate a question and associated answer for use in one tile to be played in Factile mode. Choice will generate a question, a correct answer and three incorrect answers for use in one tile to be played in Choice mode.

  4. Limited knowledge of the world after 2021

    The Artificial Intelligence model used in AutoGen was trained on information through September 2021 so there is limited knowledge of the world after that.

Do’s and Don’ts


  1. Provide clear and specific topics: Input well-defined and specific topics to receive more accurate and relevant question-answers. For example, “History, US presidents” will provide relevant questions related to the history of US presidents.
  2. Check and edit generated content: Review and edit the generated questions and answers to ensure clarity, accuracy, and coherence. AutoGen is AI based and will sometimes make mistakes and generate unclear questions.
  3. Experiment with different phrasing: Try different ways of phrasing your input to provide you with more options from which to choose. For example, “History, US presidents” and “History years 1800-1900, US presidents”.
  4. Understand model limitations: The AI model has limitations and does not have real-time knowledge. Be prepared to review and edit questions.


  1. Avoid ambiguous topics: Don't use vague or ambiguous topics, as they may lead to unclear or irrelevant results. For example “presidents” will result in unclear results compared to “history, US presidents”.
  2. Don't rely solely on AutoGen content: AutoGen is based on new generative AI models and can make mistakes. The AI models will not always provide accurate or complete answers.
  3. Do not use offensive or inappropriate language: The AI model is designed to adhere to ethical guidelines and violating the terms by inputting inappropriate language can lead to account termination.
  4. Avoid misleading or trick questions: Don't intentionally use misleading or trick questions, as this will confuse the AI model and produce inaccurate results.
