How ChatGPT can Exponentially Accelerate the Rapid eLearning Development Process

ChatGPT! You all must have been hearing about this pocket nuke trending lately, which is quite natural because of the mind-blowing feats it has pulled off with no signs of stopping as of now. The eLearning industry being no different, can benefit a lot from this exemplary AI tool. As you already know that rapid eLearning is currently one of the most impactful ways for eLearning developers to design engaging and effective training courses efficiently, ChatGPT can accelerate the process even more. This blog will help you understand what exactly is ChatGPT and how can it be a game-changer for organizations to roll out rapid eLearning courses at lightning speed.

What is ChatGPT?

In simple words, ChatGPT is an AI model which interacts with the users in a conversational way as it is trained using Reinforcement Learning from Human Feedback(RLHF). Human AI trainers provided responses from both sides which makes it reply to users in a dialogue format and then the trainers ranked their various responses to fine-tune the model. ChatGPT was developed by the OpenAI group and it belongs to their GPT-3.5 series which is trained on Azure AI supercomputing infrastructure. It can answer various questions from almost all the fields possible, accept its mistakes, and even reject inappropriate queries.

Despite being such a groundbreaking tool, it also has its limitations, one of the major ones being that it doesn’t grasp data from the internet, but rather from its own 570 GB memory where all its data is stored. Because of this limited information, sometimes the responses generated by the tool are incorrect or questionable. Another issue is that it might generate repetitive responses and at times the tool tends to guess what the user intended to ask rather than reject the query. But, these limitations don’t seem to overshadow its phenomenal use cases and how it has been acting as a lifesaver for people all over the world irrespective of the industry they work in.

How ChatGPT Thinks It Can be Helpful for Rapid eLearning

Before I mention my insights, let’s see what ChatGPT itself has to say about the same. I asked ChatGPT to explain how it can be beneficial in accelerating a rapid eLearning development process. Afterward, I asked ChatGPT to create a sample assessment for a rapid eLearning course on “safety at construction sites”. Have a look at our conversation below –

As you can see, ChatGPT says it can help in a lot of ways to boost the rapid eLearning development process for organizations. It also provided a sample assessment as per the prompt and this whole conversation took me around 3-4 minutes, so pretty quick, isn’t it? But this is just the beginning, as the model gets upgraded, its potential is only projected to increase.

How ChatGPT can Accelerate the Rapid eLearning Development Process

The 3 major rapid eLearning services apart from quick eLearning course authoring are classroom-digital learning conversion, legacy course conversion, and eLearning translation. Let’s see how and where ChatGPT will be helpful for these services.

As you know the world is on its way to getting entirely digitalized, which calls for your classroom training materials to be converted into digital learning as well. There are various digital learning formats preferred by modern learners, some of them are microlearning, VILT, AR, VR, etc. Rapid eLearning makes this conversion process easier by leveraging the power of new-age eLearning authoring tools and applying robust instructional design strategies. ChatGPT can help you update the existing content, form assessments, create course summaries, and help learners clear their doubts in real time.

The same capabilities mentioned above will assist the developers to convert legacy courses into modern formats such as HTML5 and make them accessible seamlessly for mobiles. When it comes to eLearning translations, ChatGPT being a conversational AI model is proficient with multiple languages, hence it will help the developers translate course content on the go without using any specific paid tool. Rest is all dependent on your creativity about how you can leverage the true potential of ChatGPT and exponentially accelerate your rapid eLearning development process.

Parting Thoughts!

As things seem to be right now, the sky is the only limit for AI tools and platforms like ChatGPT. It’s already predicted by a lot of people that AI is going to take over the world and snatch away a lot of jobs from humans, which is still a strong debate until it actually happens. But, for now, all we can do is keep an eye on the latest trends and technologies getting introduced every day and make sure we make their fair use and ease out our troubles to an extent.
