Today’s Corporate landscape has grown to be more fast-paced and diverse than ever before. With larger teams, a high-tech environment, and tough competition, companies are in dire need of an L&D program that complements these factors. This means, the speed of developing learning content is just as important as the quality - and there’s barely any room for compromises. 

Enter Canva & ChatGPT, the promising combination of tools you never thought you’d see. These tools, when combined, can transform the way Organizations approach eLearning content creation for their L&D activities.

Before we get into how these two technologies can be used together, we think a quick introduction is due. 

Canva is an Australia-based Global technology platform that facilitates easy and quick graphic design & video creation. The tool also comes with a wide range of options for stock photos and videos. 

ChatGPT is a tool that utilizes an LLM model that helps users generate desired responses based on prompts and directions. 

But of course, to use Canva on ChatGPT, you’ll need to opt in for the paid subscription that also allows you to make use of GPT4, their latest version of the technology. 

Once you’ve upgraded your subscription to ChatGPT Plus, you’ll now need to access the Canva Plugin within ChatGPT to start a new dialogue. In case you were wondering what the chat window looks like, here’s an image to answer your curiosity:

Step-By-Step Guide To Building Your Training Content

Step 1: The first step in the process would be to outline and brainstorm your training content using good old ChatGPT. You can ask it to come up with topics, sub-topics, and even content summaries based on your training objectives. 

Step 2: Now, use the Canva plugin within ChatGPT to feed the prompts based on the content guidelines & previous brainstorming. 

Alternative Step 2: Since the integration between Canva and ChatGPT is still in its initial stages, the output produced by it may not always be optimal. In this case, you can always open another tab and select a template directly from the Canva’s website.

Step 3: Ensure the training content generated by ChatGPT fits your Corporate Guidelines. Some modifications and tailoring will be required here, especially when it comes to design & brand themes. 

Step 4: Paste all the content strategically into various modules and generate a cohesive flow for the training program. This means splitting the content into several theme-based slides.
