Key Takeaways

  • Prompt engineering and engaging with ChatGPT: there is a need for precise and specific prompts, e.g. specifying course duration, target audience, tone of voice, key takeaways, etc. Consider also the audience needs and preferences in prompts, as well as regularly reflecting on prompts over time to improve outcomes.
  • Future trends in course design: expect more integrations of AI with platforms, including learning management systems and learning content systems. There will be less use of conversational interfaces, such as ChatGPT, and conversational AI will become more embedded in tools and platforms, to make AI more accessible to all users.
  • Overall advice for Learning Designers working with AI: don’t be afraid to use AI tools. Start with simple tasks and gradually explore more capabilities so you can understand how AI complements and enhances the work of learning designers.
