Abstract

The EMERALD-GenAI-CMM-OAL framework was introduced as a pioneering approach to integrating generative artificial intelligence (AI) into online and adult learning (OAL) institutions. However, this framework may not fully account for the unique characteristics of each institution, such as governance structures, organizational culture, and external and internal regulations. To address this limitation, I propose the EMERALD-RING framework, an extension of the EMERALD model that incorporates four additional components: external Regulations (R), Internal policies (I), Nurturing organizational culture (N), and Governance (G). This article explores the significance of these new components and how they enhance the original EMERALD model, providing institutions with a more comprehensive and tailored approach to integrating generative AI. I emphasize the crucial role of organizational culture in implementing the framework and offer practical guidance for institutions to assess their current state and set goals using the EMERALD-RING framework. The adoption of this innovative framework has the potential to drive innovation and improve learning outcomes in the digital age.
