As part of our exploration of artificial intelligence in the context of education, we’ve created a free 'MOOC' (massive open online course). If you’re interested in artificial intelligence (AI) with a focus on the impact within education and have an hour to spare, this a-sync module is designed for you.

Through videos, current research and discussion forums, the module explores two main elements;

  • An introduction to generative AI technology
  • The implications of generative AI on education

If you haven’t got a whole hour, you can revisit and take a section (5 total) at a time.
