Harnessing the Power of GPT-4 to Create the ‘How to Get the One Ring to Mordor?’ Skillgo Course

As we embarked on our journey to create the ‘How to Get the One Ring to Mordor?’ Skillgo course, we turned to an unexpected ally: OpenAI’s GPT-4. It was an exciting adventure, using artificial intelligence to guide the course creation process, and the results were nothing short of impressive.

You can explore and enjoy the course here.

Broad Overview of the Ten Prompts

Here’s a broad overview of the ten prompts we used to effectively utilize GPT-4:

  1. Create Structure
  2. Create Glossary
  3. Create SWOT Analysis
  4. Create Interactive Quizzes
  5. Differentiate for Two Target Audiences
  6. Localization

The Power of GPT-4 in Course Creation

The beauty of using GPT-4 lies in its ability to understand and generate content according to the specific prompts we feed it. The process was not only efficient but also immensely enjoyable.

Instead of spending hours brainstorming the course structure, we let GPT-4 design an intuitive and logical layout. Similarly, the creation of a glossary became a breeze, with GPT-4 utilizing its extensive knowledge of Tolkien’s universe to provide concise yet comprehensive definitions.

Interactive Quizzes

But the magic didn’t stop there. GPT-4 also generated engaging interactive quizzes to support learners’ understanding and retention. The AI’s ability to create diverse questions, ranging from straightforward recall to higher-order thinking, was a game-changer.

Localization and Differentiation

Perhaps the most impressive of all was GPT-4’s capacity to localize and differentiate the course for two target audiences. This ensured our course was not only inclusive and accessible but also personalized to different learning needs and preferences.

Smooth Integration with Skillgo Source

Lastly, all the text content was created in asciidoc, Skillgo’s syntax language, which made the transfer of information to the Skillgo source incredibly smooth.

We also utilized Bing to source images that would bring our course to life. With a wealth of high-quality images at our fingertips, we could create a visually engaging learning experience for our users.


In sum, our journey with GPT-4 in crafting the ‘One Ring to Mordor’ outlines was not about creating a complete course, but more about exploring and showcasing the technological capabilities of AI in the realm of education. This experiment demonstrates the potential of AI like GPT-4 to streamline, innovate, and enrich the process of course development, presenting an exciting glimpse into the future of educational content creation.
