Abstract

In this quick research note, we share insights from an exploratory dialogue with ChatGPT Plus, a generative artificial intelligence (AI) language model, which practically demonstrates how Communities of Practice (CoP) might evolve in the era of generative AI. Our discussion, guided by the EMERALD Generative AI Capability Maturity Model for Online and Adult Learning, explores potential transformations in collaborative learning and knowledge construction. This exercise yields illustrative examples that stimulate a broader academic discourse on the implications of generative AI for online and adult education, underscoring the model's role in shaping these insights.

Keywords: generative AI, EMERALD framework, online learning, techno-social learning, higher education, AI-enhanced community of practice, AI-driven constructivism
