How does Smart Course Create work? Enhanced with New Features, Including PDF Integration!

Create a course on any topic in any language at the beginner, intermediate, or advanced level.

We have recently updated our Smart Course Create feature by integrating OpenAI's GPT technology and adding the ability to include a PDF as instructional content. This enhancement allows users to generate entire courses on any topic, complete with assignments and learning sets, in a personalized and engaging way. Moreover, you can now choose a custom difficulty level, and the feature supports multiple languages. 

Step-by-Step Guide to Using Smart Course Create with PDF Integration

  1. Log in to your Cerego account.
  2. Navigate to the course creation section.
  3. Choose the "Create a Smart Course" option.
  4. Enter your desired topic.
  5. Input a custom difficulty level tailored to your target audience.
  6. Upload a PDF file to be used as instructional content (optional). The contents of the PDF will be utilized to generate the instructional content and quiz questions, allowing for a more tailored learning experience.
  7. Wait for a few minutes as the AI generates your course. Note that including a PDF may result in a slightly longer course creation time.

The AI will create a comprehensive course structure, including relevant assignments and learning sets, based on the entered topic and PDF content. You can then review, edit, and customize the content to suit your needs and preferences.

To get the most out of the Smart Course Create feature, consider the following best practices:

  • Specify Additional Information: To help the AI generate more focused and relevant content, you can include additional information about the topic in parentheses after the main topic query. For example, if you want a course on web development focusing on HTML, enter "Web Development (HTML)" as your topic. This will guide the AI to create a course that emphasizes HTML in the context of web development.
  • Review and Edit Content: Although the AI-generated content is tailored to your needs, it's essential to review and edit the course to ensure accuracy and alignment with your learning objectives. Double-check the content for any inaccuracies, and don't hesitate to adjust the material as needed. Note that depending on the contents and structure of the uploaded PDF, additional editing may be required.
  • Customize Assignments and Learning Sets: The AI will generate assignments and learning sets based on the entered topic and PDF content. However, you may want to customize these to better match your desired learning outcomes or specific learning styles. Take the time to review and edit the assignments and learning sets to create the best possible learning experience.
  • Optimize PDFs for Better Course Generation: To ensure the best possible course generation based on your PDF, make sure the document is well-structured, clear, and uses appropriate headings and formatting. This will help the AI more accurately interpret and utilize the information within the PDF. Avoid using complex layouts, encrypted PDFs, or image and graphic-heavy documents, as these may cause challenges for the AI and require additional editing on your part. Keep in mind that the AI does not process images, so information conveyed through visuals may not be incorporated into the course. If your PDF contains multiple topics, consider breaking it down into smaller, focused sections for better course creation results.
  • Combine Topics for Broader Coverage: If you'd like to create a course covering multiple sub-topics, consider combining them into a single course. For example, if you want a course that covers HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, enter "Web Development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript)" as your topic. This will prompt the AI to generate a course that encompasses all three aspects of web development.
  • Utilize the Difficulty Level: Be sure to select the appropriate difficulty level for your target audience. By doing so, you can create a course that is better suited to the learners' existing knowledge and skillset. Remember, you can create multiple courses with different difficulty levels to accommodate learners with varying skill levels.
  • Leverage Multiple Language Support: With the Smart Course Create feature's support for multiple languages, consider creating courses in different languages to cater to a diverse audience. This will help you reach a broader range of learners and create a more inclusive learning environment.
