How AI Will Affect Online Course Creators [2023]

7 minute read

As technology continues to advance, artificial intelligence (AI) has become increasingly prevalent in our daily lives.

From virtual assistants like Siri and Alexa to self-driving cars, AI is transforming the way we live and work.

One area where AI is already making a significant impact is online course creation.

At Heights Platform, we're always looking for ways to improve the course creation process for our creators, and we recently built-in AI-powered features that revolutionize creating and selling online courses.

In today’s article, we will cover how AI is revolutionizing the online course creation process, what the future looks like (from our perspective) and how creators can - and have to - adapt to this new trend.

Should Online Course Creators be Afraid of AI?

Lately, we have seen so many new great advancements in the field of AI that have the potential to improve many aspects of our lives!

While AI is great, it can also be scary for many people, especially considering the rate at which these advancements occur.

For creatives, it can be scary how AI is so good at creative tasks and can easily match the life's work of an artist, writer, or designer in just a few seconds. Online course creators are not immune to this feeling, especially considering the vast knowledge that AI has available.

So, is it possible that the job of an online course creator will become obsolete in the future, and AI will create courses instead?

In our opinion, this is not the case. With more and more people seeking learning opportunities online, digital courses are here to stay - and with them, online course creators (the human ones).

However, we cannot be naive and think that everything will remain the same.

Artificial Intelligence will likely change the way online courses are made, so course creators have to adapt to this new trend.

Instead of ignoring AI and pretending that nothing is changing, those course creators who are the first to adapt will likely be the most successful in a future dominated by machine learning.

So let's see how you can adapt to these new changes and start using AI to your advantage.

How Online Course Creator can Use AI to Their Advantage

The best way to harness the power of AI in online course creation is to use AI as a tool to make your job easier.

Let's be honest: even if AI is faster, more analytical and has access to a wider range of information compared to a human brain, there are some things that AI simply cannot do.

In online course creation, AI doesn't have access to your unique personal experiences and insights that make your course invaluable for students. It doesn't have the human touch to communicate with students and understand their pain points. It cannot bring people together and build a community, and so on!

We’d never suggest you use AI to create the entire content for your online course, as it will not provide the same level of value, compared with the value your unique teaching style and experiences can bring .

Instead, you should use AI to automate monotonous tasks in your workflow, kick-start your content creation, get inspiration for new course topics or lesson ideas, review your work and more...

Long story short, AI can be a great ally for course creators when used correctly.

So how can you use AI correctly?

Well, lucky for you, at Heights Platform, we have set up all the technical side for you, so you can harness the power of AI to enhance your course creation process.

How AI will Affect Online Courses

Now that you know how to adapt to AI and make your online course stand out, let's see how AI will affect the world of online course creation in the future (in our humble opinion).

Here are just a few ways that AI is likely to affect online course creation in the near future:

A Need for a More Personalized Learning Experience

In a world where AI can do human tasks faster and better, students will seek unique and personalized experiences rather than out-of-touch courses that present the same content and offer a standard experience to all students.

Students will need to know that behind an online course, there is in fact a real person, and will want to create a relationship with you and other students.

If you haven't already, consider building a community with your online course.

With Heights Platform, you can easily build a thriving community alongside your courses and products, where students can chat, ask questions and create meaningful connections.

AI is not your enemy when it comes to creating a personalized student experience: actually, AI tools can help you with this!

By analyzing data about each student's learning style, interests, and progress, AI algorithms can tailor the course content and delivery to meet their individual needs. This could lead to higher engagement and retention rates, as well as more effective learning outcomes overall.

For instance, the AI could track students' progress and identify areas where they may be struggling. Based on this data, the AI could recommend additional resources or provide feedback in real-time to help the student overcome their difficulty.

Streamlined Content Creation

Creating high-quality course content takes time and effort, but AI could streamline the process by automating some of the more tedious tasks.

The Heights AI is already helping creators kick-start their businesses by generating course outline suggestions, offering recommendations on course titles and descriptions, and much more!

This can save you hours and hours of manual work and reduce the time and effort required to create course content and brainstorm ideas, allowing you to focus on what you truly enjoy as a course creator. Smaller and more basic “mini courses” may become less valuable as AI makes knowledge more accessible. More specialized, in depth courses will still be in high demand, and this is what we’ve recommended that course creators focus on building since before anyone was talking about AI.

Improved Student Support

Finally, AI could also enhance the support that students receive throughout the course.

You can already use chatbots and virtual assistants powered by AI to answer common questions, provide feedback, and even offer personalized recommendations based on each student's progress.

This could lead to a more intuitive and user-friendly learning experience for students.

Chatbots and virtual assistants can answer student queries in real time, providing immediate feedback to students.

This would reduce the burden on creators to answer individual student queries and allow them to focus on other aspects of course creation.


Overall, we believe that AI has the potential to revolutionize online course creation and - when used correctly - creators can use these tools to provide more effective, personalized, and engaging learning experiences for students.

As the technology continues to evolve, we're excited to see how we can integrate AI into the Heights Platform to better serve our creators and students alike.

If you are a course creator, use the Heights AI to help you kick-start your business and get everything you need for your course.
