This class is for you if:

  • You're familiar with ChatGPT

    If you've been using ChatGPT, attend this course to fill in your knowledge gaps, validate what you know, and gain a greater understanding of how Copilot works compared to ChatGPT.

  • You've never used ChatGPT

    If you're brand new to GenAI, then you're in the right spot! While all of these AI terms may be unfamiliar and even scary, you'll feel like the expert in the room after you learn the language and history of GenAi.

  • You use Microsoft 365

    If you use Microsoft 365 for work, school, or at home, attend this course to get started with Copilot for Microsoft 365. This session will give you the confidence to start using Copilot today and why/when to start using the paid version.
