Skillsoft, a leading platform for transformative learning experiences, has recently announced its ChatGPT Learning Journey, the first in a series of generative AI courses designed to equip organizations and the workforce with the skills required to use the technology productively and ethically. The course aims to help organizations understand and harness the potential of AI to drive business growth, an official statement said.
According to the World Economic Forum, AI and machine learning specialists, as the fastest-growing job of 2023 expected to generate one million new roles by 2027. Meanwhile, IT decision-makers surveyed in Skillsoft’s recent IT Skills and Salary Report cited AI as among the top 10 most difficult skills to hire for and the top three areas of skills investment. As organizations face a growing AI skills gap, Skillsoft’s ChatGPT Learning Journey leverages the company’s long-standing content development practices paired with AI technology and customer feedback to deliver a purpose-built path catered to critical training needs.
Blending on-demand courses and hands-on experiences, Skillsoft’s ChatGPT Learning Journey provides a thorough exploration of the technology, beginning with an introduction to large language models and their capabilities and progressing through practical applications, advanced techniques, industry impacts, and key ethical considerations. The journey also allows organizations and learners to gauge proficiency in generative AI via Skillsoft’s Benchmark Assessments and apply these newly acquired skills by building a Python-based, AI-driven application.
Speaking about the development, Chief Executive Officer of Skillsoft, Jeffrey R. Tarr, said:
Generative AI will impact nearly every knowledge worker, creating an unprecedented upskilling and reskilling need for organizations and their employees. Our ChatGPT Learning Journey is another step in our efforts to address this challenge head-on and ensure our customers can seize the opportunity represented by generative AI, all while doing so safely and ethically.
