I have a long history of working with concept maps so a project like this is doubly appealing to me. The idea is to use chatGPT to create a concept map of all the key terms in a course, showing how they're related, thus creating multiple pathways through the material. As the authors note, however, it's not ready for prime time. My own experiments showed you can't just ask chatGPT to do it; this was the result when I asked it to build a concept map for my ethics course. So they developed a 'Key Term Scraper' to extract concepts "so that it can supply the Map with terms that an article is about." The study (11 page PDF) so far has given them some concrete results, for example the ability to evaluate the relevance of concepts discussed and consider ways to better organize the material. I look forward to seeing more in the future.
