Vanderbilt University’s Prompt Engineering for ChatGPT

Vanderbilt University’s Prompt Engineering for ChatGPT

Generative AI tools such as ChatGPT are already changing the way marketers develop their marketing content. Using generative artificial intelligence, marketers can quickly draft anything from an Instagram caption to a long-form blogpost. But the quality of the work generated by tools like ChatGPT can vary widely. One of the key factors for determining the quality of an AI generated text is the quality of the prompt, or set of instructions given to the AI tool. For this reason, marketers have developed a set of strategies and tactics for improving their prompts, which has come to be known as “prompt engineering.”

While prompt engineering is still a relatively new concept, Vanderbilt’s Prompt Engineering for ChatGPT course provides a solid foundation for marketers looking to improve their prompts. Through the course, students will learn the key principles of prompt engineering and explore a number of helpful prompt patterns, or reusable frameworks for common generative AI tasks. This course can be audited for free through Coursera, though a paid upgraded course path offers students graded assessments as well as access to a certificate after completion.
