Tips for Genie

State the purpose of the course. Clearly define your learning outcome objectives.
Some examples are…

  • “Maintain online security and privacy while working remotely.”
  • “Demonstrate critical thinking and problem-solving skills in a variety of situations.”
  • “Prioritize tasks effectively and manage multiple deadlines simultaneously.”

Provide key topics or resources. Reference any existing textbooks or curriculum you want to cover.
Some examples are…

  • “Project Management: A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide)”
  • "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (Covey)"
  • “Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes Are High (Patterson, Grenny, McMillan)”

Tell Genie the specific language you want your course translated into. Mention a specific dialect to add that genuine connection with your learners.
An example would be…

  • "Generate a detailed course outline in Canadian French about Indigenous Culture and Traditions” for high school students that are familiar with basic Canadian history."

Refine and repeat. The first draft is just the beginning! Give Genie your feedback, highlighting what works and what needs improvement. 

Some examples are...

  • "Make it more conversational. Also, add some personal anecdotes to make it more relatable."
  • “Provide an explanation on this specific topic.”
  • “This topic needs to be removed and replaced with this other topic.”
