The Generative AI Landscape for Learning Designers
~40 tools with the potential to change how we design learning experiences in 2023
What better way to see out 2022 than by playing with some generative AI toys?
There are a lot of new technologies around right now. So, I did a review of over 200 of them and put together this list of the ones which I think are most relevant & powerful for learning designers.
Which tools are most exciting, and what did I miss? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
Happy new year & happy designing!
