As an ESL teacher and PD trainer with a background in Learning Design, I've always sought to bridge the gap between theory and practice. Having recently completed an Elearning Masters and having read about AI, I approached the Certificate in AI for Learning with some theoretical foundation. However, this course has added layers to that foundation by offering practical insights and real-world applications of AI in course building and teaching. The examples provided were enlightening, showcasing the benefits and potential challenges of integrating AI into our learning environments.

The Certificate in AI for Learning was truly enlightening. The abundance of apps available for crafting engaging learning programs is remarkable. They not only promise efficiency but also energy conservation. The guidance on app selection tailored to the ADDIE process stages was invaluable. The highlight for me was the accessibility segment; understanding how AI can pave the way for inclusive learning experiences for individuals with disabilities is both intriguing and inspiring


Phil Davis

I found this Certificate in AI for Learning to be really useful, and to see the various tools available and how they might help is also really helpful. I've been thinking about how my workplace could implement many of the tools in speeding things up from a process point of view, and I think there could be a huge impact, letting staff get on with other more creative tasks.

I was captivated by the Certificate in AI for Learning and found myself eagerly setting up trial accounts for various apps. The sheer volume of options was initially overwhelming, but the courses clear structure allowed me to quickly identify which apps would best support our current learning formats and tasks. While I've experimented with several, I can already pinpoint a few that will seamlessly integrate into our learning design. Not only do they benefit my personal workflow, but I also see potential for roles like SMEs. An insightful journey into the vast world of tech!

Getting insights into the varied AI tools for the ADDIE process in the Certificate in AI for Learning was truly enlightening. The rapid integration of AI features in software is evident, and it's clear that premium services might soon be on the horizon. What was particularly eye-opening for me was AI's role in accessibility. While familiar with Microsoft's Accessibility Checker, it's fascinating to see LMS providers delve into this domain. Notably, one LMS vendor stands out, offering comprehensive content translations, a step beyond the basic text configurations typical of most providers.


Mairi McLoughlin

The application videos and examples in the Certificate in AI for Learning were incredibly helpful. Previously, the vast array of AI tools for learning felt daunting, making it challenging to discern their proper use and limitations. This course brilliantly demystifies that by pinpointing the right tools and demonstrating their application in context. I'm excited to implement them in my own setting.

The Certificate in AI for Learning has been useful in understandind AI in the Digital Learning world. I hadn't considered all of the existing use cases before (such as predictive text etc.), nor some of the ethical concerns around data privacy. It was interesting to think about how AI can be adopted into a learning environment.
