Janelle Shane on the Realities of Artificial Intelligence

Instructional Design, Product Content


Articulate partners with the Next Big Idea Club to create courses based on their featured nonfiction books. I created this course based on Janelle Shane’s “You Look Like a Thing and I Love You: How Artificial Intelligence Works and Why It’s Making the World a Weirder Place”


The author/subject matter expert sent materials that informed my course creation. I also helped QA the videos and captions created by NBIC. In addition, NBIC was integral to the development of the course, as it would be displayed on their website as well as in Articulate’s tools.

Finally, I also collaborated with Articulate’s internal design team to draft and create custom images to illustrate key concepts within the course.
