The advent of generative artificial intelligence (AI) has ignited considerable excitement, largely attributed to its ability to generate original content through natural language processing (NLP) and comprehensive language models (LLM). The main reason for this excitement is the potential of generative AI to comprehend and produce human language in a similar manner to a human being, considered one of the most intricate and advanced systems in existence (Bozkurt, 2023). Given this, we cannot ignore, resist, or deny the continuous influence of generative AI technologies. The capacity of these generative AI agents to employ human language for communication, interaction, and crafting human-like responses suggests a potential shift in the prevailing educational paradigm.Read more about Call for Papers: Online and Blended Learning in the Age of Generative AI
