The possibilities of artificial intelligence and technology like ChatGPT and Midjourney are truly endless when it comes to eLearning. With the ability to materialise anything you can think of, these cutting-edge tools can and WILL transform the way we learn. Before, our creativity was confined to the limits of our accumulated skills in certain fields, and often hindered by constraints such as time, budget, and resources. Regardless of the brilliance and potential implications of your idea, no manager would grant budget for producing realistic 3D images for a branching scenario, needed for Compliance training. It’s just not practical. Now it all comes to the power of your imagination. Just like magic, you can bring your ideas to life in ways never thought possible.
Traditional methods of creating eLearning content can be labour-intensive and time-consuming, requiring significant effort to research, write, and design materials. With AI, however, much of this work can be automated, allowing content creators to focus on more important tasks such as adapting training programs to be more relevant to the audience and measuring their real-life impact on behaviour and performance.
And it doesn’t stop there. One incredible prospect of incorporating AI into eLearning is the ability to create truly personalised and captivating learning journeys. ChatGPT, for example, can be used to generate conversation-based eLearning materials, making it easier for learners to understand and retain information. Midjourney can be utilised to construct interactive simulations and virtual experiences that immerse learners in a dynamic and engaging learning environment.
With AI, the sky is the limit. eLearning designers can build new concepts, and AI can help them visualise and turn them into reality.
But what about the critics who argue that AI will replace creativity? They couldn't be more wrong. AI is not here to replace human talent, but to liberate it. It allows us to create stories and embody ideas with less effort, in less time, and without the technical skills required. So let your imagination run wild on the wings of AI.
