ChatGPT, a powerful language model from OpenAI, reached 1 million users in just 5 days. Other popular platforms like Facebook, Netflix, Instagram, and Twitter took much longer to reach this number, with 300, 1200, 75, and 720 days respectively. With its ability to generate writing that closely mimics human language and its capacity for multiple ongoing conversations, ChatGPT is a versatile tool that can aid in open education by providing personalized support, direction, and feedback to autodidactic learners, thus increasing motivation and engagement. The author acknowledges asking chatGPT questions regarding its uses for education. Some of the uses that it states are possible now and some are potentials for the future. The author has analyzed and edited the replies of chat GPT.
