This article, by Emil Reisser-Weston MSc MEng from Open eLMS, envisions a scenario where AI streamlines content creation by transforming ideas, concepts, or information into engaging eLearning courses. The AI not only produces content but also designs visually appealing eLearning experiences, complete with interactive quizzes and questions.
It highlights how this AI-driven approach can revolutionize eLearning design and emphasizes the evolving role of eLearning designers in creating tailored and effective educational content.

Hello all. Today, I want to talk about something that might sound straight out of a sci-fi movie: using AI to turn text prompts into fully-fledged eLearning content. That's right – we’re talking about harnessing the power of artificial intelligence to transform a simple idea into a comprehensive learning experience. Intrigued? Let’s dive in!
Open eLMS AI is a solution that can do this using a generalised AI knowledge base – such as that used by Chat GTP. You can ask it to produce an eLearning course on any topic and it will do that.
AI Generated eLearning
But picture this: you have a bunch of ideas, concepts, or information that you or your company has created and you want to turn that information into an engaging eLearning course. Instead of slogging through hours of content creation, what if you could just give a quick text prompt and let the AI handle the rest? That’s where trained AI from uploaded documents comes into play.
Imagine you want to create a course on “Coffee Brewing at SunDollars” for your coffee company, SunDollars. You type in a text prompt like, “Create an eLearning course explaining how we make coffee here at SunDollars.” Now, this isn’t some sci-fi mumbo-jumbo; AI is really capable of making this happen.
The AI takes your text prompt and gets to work. It digs through its digital brain, analysing tons of uploaded documents, articles, and resources related to coffee brewing at the company. It’s like having a team of researchers at your fingertips, working at lightning speed. The AI distils all that knowledge into structured lessons, modules, and even interactive quizzes.
But wait, there’s more. Not only does the AI create the content, but it also designs the eLearning with visually stimulating content such as video presenters, eye-catching graphics and animations to break down complex concepts.
But here’s the kicker: the learning experience doesn’t stop at the content. The AI can also design quizzes that test the learner’s knowledge of coffee brewing and can even add interactive questions through the course of the elearning module. It’s like having a personalised tutor guiding you through each step of the learning journey.

So what does this mean for the eLearning designer? Well as an eLearning designer myself, we’ve all had those moments where we’re staring at a blank screen, trying to find the right words. AI eliminates that struggle. It generates clear, concise explanations that are as easy to understand as your favourite meme and gives you a design upon which you can embellish. You don’t have to worry about jargon or convoluted sentences; the AI keeps things simple and relatable.

With Open eLMS AI you, as a designer, can then step in and add that touch of design magic, editing text and redesigning as you go. The design of eLearning will be so much quicker, but the amount of eLearning demanded from companies will grow as it gets easier to create and personalise eLearning. Why do you need to purchase a one-size-fits-all course that is largely inappropriate for your needs! The AI can now be so easy to produce that courses can be replaced every few months, which contain up to date information. Your eLearning will be refreshed with updated documentation loaded into the AI so that it evolves with you.
So is the eLearning designer now redundant? I would say the exact opposite – thankfully! The eLearning designer will now be employed directly by organisations to disseminate the wealth of knowledge within each company. They will be more central to the running and financial success of a company. As such their worth will be enhanced, more job opportunities will occur and wages will rise accordingly.
To sum it up, AI isn’t just about automating tasks; it’s about enhancing the learning experience in ways we couldn’t have imagined before. So, don’t be surprised if the next eLearning course you enrol in feels like it was tailor-made for you – thanks to the magic of AI, a simple text prompt and the power of the Open eLMS AI system.
