As OpenAI unveils ChatGPT Edu, postsecondary reacts with optimism, trepidation

OpenAI recently unveiled its ChatGPT Edu product, a platform specifically designed for postsecondary institutions that want to provide their students and campus communities with free access to AI. ChatGPT Edu is designed for educational applications such as conducting data analysis, tutoring, and writing grant applications, and receiving feedback on assignments. The platform is being met with both optimism and trepidation from the postsecondary sector. While some are applauding the tool for offering students personalised learning experiences and robust research assistance, others are worried about its overuse, potential for plagiarism, and negative impact on the development of critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
