10 Uses of artificial intelligence in training

AI has changed the way we research, create content, and do work. Building learning materials is easier than ever with generative AI tools like ChatGPT cutting out significant steps like research and brainstorming. However, the uses of AI go beyond content creation.

In this article, we’ll talk about ways AI can help you make more meaningful learning experiences for all kinds of corporate training.

Importance of AI in learning and development

Even before ChatGPT, AI played a large role in elearning and corporate training and has always been part of elearning trends. If you’re working in an enterprise or large organization, building, compiling, and tracking data can be a complete mess, so AI has addressed those aspects of the workflow. AI tools like intelligent recommendation systems and analytics make data management much easier.

AI in learning and development (L&D) cuts out tedious tasks and helps learning managers focus on important things like building long-term curriculums and effective training plans. Without advanced AI tools, training would take so much more time and effort for all employees of an organization.

So, to help you understand the different ways AI can simplify processes in learning and development, we’ll show you some concrete examples alongside usable tools you can integrate into your training workflow.

1. Automated Content Creation

Of course, the simplest and most relevant use of artificial intelligence in training is automated content creation. This is when AI generates and develops content out of a topic, phrase, link, or even straight-up learning files.

A great example of this is SC Training (formerly EdApp)’s Create with Al feature where you can create lessons with a click of a button. Enter a topic, keyword, or course summary, and see the tool generate a complete microlearning course along with text and media. If you’re struggling with writer’s block or a lack of inspiration, this is the tool for you.

Think of Create with AI as a brainstorming partner, developing and designing interactive elements for you to help you build the best courses for your learners. And with Create with AI, you won’t even need design or coding experience to create professional learning courses for a variety of topics.

2. Personalized learning paths

Even before the popularization of ChatGPT and other generative AI models, learning management systems (LMS) have already used AI to create personalized learning paths. These are recommended learning experiences based on the profile and performance of individual learners.

Through smart learning, AI can algorithmically create meaningful learning paths, similar to how content channels like TikTok and YouTube work. As an L&D manager, you can take ownership of your team’s learning with the help of AI without the stress of micromanaging.

At times this is called adaptive learning, where the learning technology and AI tailor-fit a learning program just for your learner’s style and pace. And depending on their progress, AI can automatically recommend more challenging or more supportive learning materials.

3. AI Translation

In a globalized world, training happens in different places and in different languages. For a diverse team, creating training for multiple languages can be deeply time-consuming and stressful. That’s where AI comes in.

Learning management systems like SC Training (formerly EdApp), one of the best AI platforms on the market, can instantly translate your learning programs and courses into any of the 100+ available languages with a click of a button. And if you’re already using SC Training (formerly EdApp) to deliver your training courses you can set it automatically to your learner’s preferred language.

4. Generate quizzes

Why build quizzes yourself when you can generate interactive learning content with the help of artificial intelligence? Just like most learning content, you can automate the creation of quizzes for your courses through your learning management system’s course creator.

5. Create outlines

If you’re creating bulk content or a whole curriculum, maybe you’d be more comfortable generating outlines instead of entire courses. AI can help you structure your training programs and break them down into more digestible chunks. Some AI assistant tools like ChatGPT and Poe AI can create outlines and course structures with just a keyword. 

6. Generate images

Finding visual aids for training courses can be difficult. Stock images may not be specific enough and can even get boring. One of the benefits of artificial intelligence is that you can generate new and specific images based on keywords. For example, if you need sample images for safety topics like trips and falls you can easily generate some.

This can even be useful for more technical courses like forklift training, crane operation, and electrical safety.

7. Data analysis

Just like in learning paths, AI can do more than just create content. Artificial intelligence can support L&D managers with in-depth data analysis of learner performance and progress. AI can do this through feedback evaluation, statistical analysis, and training material insights. For those looking to delve deeper into the technical side, collaborating with an artificial intelligence development company can provide advanced insights and solutions tailored to specific training needs.

And after the analysis, AI can automatically generate reports that teams can use to create much better programs that serve their learning objectives. 

8. Summarize content

If you’re having a hard time understanding difficult concepts you want to include in your training courses, you can use AI to help you summarize content. Chatting with programs like ChatGPT can help you learn quicker than Googling a keyword or term. A natural consequence of this is that you can use the summaries generated by AI to be included in your training courses themselves.

9. Conversation practice

If your teams are client-facing or work in retail, using AI is an effective way to practice conversations without the pressure of nailing every conversation right. AI in learning and development uses machine learning algorithms to develop and deliver role-playing scenarios to help teams learn how to handle difficult situations.

You can even customize tools like ChatGPT to take after customer personas and generate responses based on a client profile.

10. Brainstorming

AI corporate training tools can be great assistants. So, when you’re stuck in a rut or facing mental blockers, you can just consult AI to help you find ideas. Most generative AI tools like ChatGPT can give you a wide range of ideas for any kind of topic. And if you’re building courses, SC Training (formerly EdApp)’s Create with AI can basically get rid of the research part altogether.
