Since the dawn of 2023, AI has become the dominant topic of discussion in business, technology, medicine, education, engineering, design, the arts, and public policy—nearly everywhere. Corporate eLearning is no exception, with generative AI tools already available that can aid instructional designers and architects of eLearning platforms. Much of the focus this year has been on Large Language Models (LLMs) like ChatGPT, Bard, and Claude. These tools allow anyone to generate text with a prompt.

Creating content for a one-hour training module can take 50-60 hours, and today’s LLMs can help instructional designers cut that time down significantly—not by replacing them, but by accelerating the brainstorming and drafting process with content like John’s revenue accounting error.

LLMs are beginning to be integrated directly into Learning Management Systems (LMSs) to help course designers leverage these same content generation capabilities dynamically. For example, powerful chatbots can answer learner questions, clarify and reframe concepts, or reduce or increase the level of detail depending on learner preferences.
