      4. The AI will take a short time to build the course and when complete will display the lessons within the course editor where you can review and make edits if needed.
      5. If a prompt was not detailed enough, the lesson will show as not ready and will require further edits

    2. Multiple lessons from a file

      1. Follow steps 1 and 2 above and select Multiple Lessons From File
      2. Click select PDF and upload your document and click Generate topics

      4. Lesson generation will take approximately 20-30 seconds and will appear in the course editor where you can review and edit as needed.

Getting ready to publish

Once eduMe AI has taken the hard work out of gathering lesson content, now's your chance to make the lesson your own. Here are some of our recommendations for how you can personalise your AI-generated lesson before sharing with learners.

Review the content

Take a look through the content that's been generated. Does it cover everything you'd like to include? Are there points you'd like to expand on? Or perhaps information you don't need to include?

AI-generated content is a great way to kickstart lesson creation, but don't be afraid to make your mark and edit as needed.

Add images

Create a visually engaging lesson by adding images where relevant.

You can upload your own images, select from the eduMe library or head to royalty-free websites such as Unsplash and Pexels to download images for free.

Take a look at our recommendations for adding media to eduMe lessons here.

Add a splash of colour

Bring the lesson in line with your brand look and feel by choosing theme colours for slides. If you haven't already set your brand colours, just head to Branding Settings from the main settings navigation.

Add more quiz questions

eduMe AI will automatically generate one or several quiz questions, however you may wish to add more.

We've put together a few tips on creating quizzes if you need some inspiration!


Q: Why can't I see the option to create an AI-generated lesson?

A: If you're building a lesson in an existing course that has conversational lessons already created, you won't see the option to create an AI-generated lesson. This is because the AI generator only works for courses using slideshow lessons.

Q: Why is a course/ lesson showing as not ready after?

A: If generating without a .pdf file, try and be specific as possible. If there's not enough information, the AI will create a lesson but will be without content and require manual editing.

Q: Why am I getting an error message when generating a course with a .pdf file?

A: If your file was created into a .pdf from images with selectable/ readable text, or is a scanned copy then the generator won't be able to read the text. You can convert this into a .pdf document using a .pdf OCR converter.
