OpenAI's Documentation

Overview of the documentation from OpenAI

Let's start by learning more about ChatGPT for free by looking at OpenAI's documentation!

Yes, it's not an in-depth course like the other examples on this list, but it's still a great place to start.

I mean, who knows ChatGPT better than OpenAI themselves, right?

Prompt Engineering for ChatGPT by Vanderbilt University

A great course to familiarize yourself with AI. The course is very well done and, as a beginner in A.I, I can say that every topic discussed is very thoroughly explained.

Next up is the prompt engineering for ChatGPT course that is created by the Vanderbilt University.

Here's what you will learn:

  • How to apply prompt engineering to effectively work with large language models, like ChatGPT.
  • How to use prompt patterns to tap into powerful capabilities within large language models.
  • How to create complex prompt-based applications for your life, business, or education.

Just keep in mind that the course takes around 18 hours to complete.

Good to know: Note that 9 hours (and earning a certificate) are locked behind a paywall, unfortunately (a bit of each module).

And if you already enrolled in one course, you will, unfortunately, need to subscribe to a paid plan to access it —or finish the course within their 7-day free trial.

Another great place to find (free) ChatGPT courses is Udemy.

You can search for ChatGPT (or anything else you want to learn, like Midjourney) and sort the price on Free!

Personally, I think the paid courses are better on Udemy than the free courses, but this article is about free ChatGPT courses!

But still, the paid ones are mostly between $10 and $15!

You will also see that there are more paid Udemy courses on Udemy than free courses. For example:

Another great place to find ChatGPT courses is Skillshare.

There are currently 156 ChatGPT-related courses there, and just like Udemy, you can search for other topics that you want to learn as well!

The only downside is that Skillshare does offer a free trial, but it isn’t free forever.

However, they do currently offer a free month trial, which is more than enough time to complete a few of these courses!

Skillshare ChatGPT course examples

Here are three great examples that I found on Skillshare about ChatGPT:

Introduction to ChatGPT (Datacamp)

It was really thorough and informative! I enjoyed the content immensely.
