Personally, I think the paid courses are better on Udemy than the free courses, but this article is about free generative AI 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.

Don't forget to search for the AI tool that you're using, and it will most likely show a few more courses!

Here are a few keywords that you can use to see the free generative AI-related courses on Udemy:

  • Midjourney
  • "Stable Diffusion"

Generative AI courses on Skillshare

Another great place to find generative AI courses is Skillshare.

There are currently 23 generative AI-related courses there, and just like Udemy, you can search for other topics that you want to learn as well!

And, just as with Udemy, don't forget to search for other keywords, like ChatGPT, 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 generative AI course examples

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

Practical Deep Learning for Coders

If you are looking for a guide that starts at the ground floor and takes you to the cutting edge of research, this is the book for you. Don’t let those PhDs have all the fun—you too can use deep learning to solve practical problems.

Hal Varian, Emeritus Professor, UC Berkeley; Chief Economist, Google
Practical Deep Learning for Coders

Here's an interesting one if you're interested in learning how to apply deep learning and machine learning to practical problems.

However, keep in mind that you do need some coding experience.

The best part is that they created a second part, which contains over 30 hours of video content, where they implement the Stable Diffusion algorithm from scratch!

The great thing is that Tanishq Mathew Abraham, from Stability AI, has helped teach a number of those lessons!

Generative AI Concepts (Datacamp)

Next up is the Generative AI Concepts course on Datacamp!

I saved it for later in this article because the only downside with Datacamp is that, as a free user, you can only access the first chapter of each course:

However, as you can see in the screenshot above, you can still access a lot of free information!

Also, they have a great course called 'Introduction to ChatGPT'.

You saw that with the other things on this list, like Udemy and YouTube.
