ChatGPT "sometimes just makes stuff up," writes Michael Rota, but "what if you could provide GPT-4 with good answers to questions you wanted your students to work through? It turns out you can, and thus it is possible to create an alarmingly capable course tutor by supplying GPT-4 with a series of question/answer pairs." I tried it out, and while I found it pretty slow and a bit presumptive (it expected answers more specific than the questions that were asked) it was also a perfectly capable course tutor (if you think a 'course tutor' is an AI that quizzes you about the course content). Rota also links to ChatPDF, where we can upload any PDF up to 120 pages and then query it for free. Here's a PDF of my paper on Connectivism you can try it on.
