As an introductory course, it is a good basic rundown on what AI is, how you can use it and what it has to offer. It is concise and to the point. Great for anyone who has heard about Chat GPT on the grapevine or has only used it once or twice. This to me is a fundamental knowledge course that everyone should do. Just so you know, it isn't a deep dive just a basic understanding, so it is true to its name as an 'introduction to Chat GPt'. It is an hour long so almost anyone can find the time to get you up to speed. I probably wouldn't pay more than $10 for it though. Its more of a laymans understanding of it.
The course thoroughly broke down ChatGPT and it's impressive capabilities in a way that can be widely understood and implemented into a variety of different fields. What stuck out most was the emphasis on being thorough with your inputs into ChatGPT while also reviewing the output for any errors or points needing clarification / elaboration. My only critique is to add a few hands-on activities so that students have some time interacting with ChatGPT while actively taking the course (albeit the course does provide a great template to use as people continue to work with the tool on their own).
The lack of understanding of potential future consequences is staggering. Tremendous responsibility is carried with the use of generative AI which this course briefly gleams over in favor of promoting technology that is inherently flawed. The escalated use of such technologies will only widen the gaping maw of problems at hand. Otherwise the course provides sufficient background aside from a lack of mechanical knowledge. It's concerning to focus on prompt engineering versus how ChatGPT understands your prompt at a data level.
It's great but the courses are great when they have real world applications and testing that's when the users learn the most asking users to frame 5W1H prompts and utilising the commands also. This way they build a long term memory with real world applicability further deepening their understanding and how to utilise chat gpt as your tutor for learning anything.
Great overview. Interesting. Went over history, how to write effective prompts using the 5 W's (Who, What, Where, Which, and Why) and How, ethical considerations, and thoughts about the future. Gave a great example or a poor prompt changed to an effective prompt. Everyone with a 365datascience subscription should take this short course!

“AI software like ChatGPT is the future. We have to learn to use it to our advantage as soon as possible instead of pretending it does not exist.”
