This short article tells us that "since learning company Pearson introduced generative AI (Gen AI) study tools in beta testing to its Pearson+ e-textbooks in fall 2023, the feature has become increasingly popular, and the company has announced plans to add at least 40 more titles in math, science, business, and nursing for fall 2024." According to Pearson, the tools include text summarizers and explanations along with practice activities and flashcards. It's not surprising commercial textbook producers would adopt AI; the real question is how (and whether) open educational resource (OER) producers will do the same. See also: Khanmigo.
