Assignment Information Video Production using Artificial Intelligence (AI) Tools

Exemplar thumbnail


Ryan Murphy, Assistant Professor of Business Communication at California State University Channel Islands, created an assignment information video using HeyGen (an AI avatar video creation tool) and ChatGPT. Assignment information videos supplement written assignment instructions, rubrics, and verbal explanations of an assignment in class. By offering assignment information using additional modes, student gain enhanced clarity and understanding of assignment instructions. Video instructions keep students engaged and they can be replayed as many times as necessary. Acknowledgement to Dr. Stephen Lind of the University of Southern California who presented this concept at the Association for Business Communication Western Regional Conference (Spring 2024), where he shared both practical outcome of AI videos like this as well as technical instructions for creating them.
