How Are E-Learning Designers Using AI to Build Online Training? #416

Using AI in E-Learning #416: Challenge | Recap

When it comes to e-learning, today’s authoring apps make it easier than ever to build interactive training. In addition, today’s course designers don’t need to know how to write code to design engaging courses. 

But even with the advancements in e-learning tools, course creators still face common challenges such as content expertise, graphic design, time constraints, and insufficient resources. This is where the power of artificial intelligence (AI) can help.

So, whether you're generating quiz questions and feedbackanimating characters, or transforming text into captivating images, there's likely an AI-based app that can help speed up production. And that's what this week's challenge is all about.

Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to show how AI can be used in e-learning or instructional design. Please briefly describe the app(s) you used to create your demo.

I almost forgot to share my project this week! I actually started this for the scrolling panel challenge but was unable to finish that week. It's a Seinfeld quiz, but even if you aren't a Seinfeld fan, you will be able to answer the questions correctly if you use the clues (which is where the scrolling panels are used). I used ChatGPT to help write the feedback message after the answer is submitted and the answers for challenge question #4. I asked it to write in the style of Seinfeld and I think it did a pretty good job. With his permission, I used the words from Daniel Canaveral's Custom Glossary (Challenge #396) in the message. Dan also gave me some feedback to help enhance the quiz! Thanks Dan! Expand
