Content tools that accelerate the creation of content (text, images, videos, podcasts, animations, graphics) to create learning materials.
This category is where the most growth is happening. Content creation tools are commonly used for:
Many tools create amazing images based on a simple prompt (e.g., /imagine two diverse professionals having a heated discussion near a water cooler) and their capabilities have come a long way. Our favorite, MidJourney, generates beautiful images and provides several options you can add to your learning content.
AI video tools can be used to: There are three types of AI video tools to produce or enhance
- Improve video and audio quality
- Create video scripts by analyzing provided photos and images, and
- Convert text to video, complete with images, music, and text animation.
At The Regis Company, we’ve been testing some powerful tools for both video/audio quality and creating video scripts and are pleased with the results. For example, for video/audio quality, you can change a video by deleting filler words in the text output, and the AI will regenerate the video. It’s a serious time-saver.
One of our favorite tools is Synthesia.io. With this tool, you can choose from over 40 realistic avatars, upload a script, and get high-quality video at a fraction of the cost of live actors. These avatars are fantastic for introducing storylines, giving feedback, serving as guides, and setting up situations.
With OpenAI’s ChatGPT and soon LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications from Google), the number of tools used to create high-quality content for blogs, websites, articles, homework, and learning is rapidly exploding.
With a good prompt (a natural language description that acts as input for the AI), the tools do a great job generating creative content for writing cases, scenarios, or storylines. And while the output is not perfect and does require a human to check for references and accuracy, these tools significantly reduce the cost and time to produce content.
To this aim, we developed a powerful tool, ReX Co-Pilot. Working in concert with our SimGate design platform, it produces everything from assessments to eLearning and simulation-based learning content.
