“The course includes an exclusive interview with an international Artificial Intelligence (AI) expert from Hong Kong, as well as being very dynamic and digestible. It’s designed for any participant to get familiar with ChatGPT and understand the basic tools.”

This was the explanation from Jorge Nava, E-Learning Project Coordinator at Tec de Monterrey’s Institute for the Future of Education.

The content is now available on the Coursera platform and is open to the general public.

ChatGPT course content

The ChatGPT - Applications and Strategies course consists of 17 hours of training that can be divided into 3 weeks by investing 5 hours a week or as managed by the participant.

This course contains 4 modules that will teach you about:

  •  The history and foundations of Artificial Intelligence, the essence of ChatGPT
  • Key concepts for using ChatGPT effectively
  • Implementing ChatGPT responsibly in educational settings and the workplace
  • ChatGPT ethical considerations, capabilities, and limitations

“We invite you to immerse yourself in the world of Artificial Intelligence, which can help us with everyday tasks.” - Jorge Nava.


Nava explains that the course is designed with dynamic videos, texts to read, and presentations. One of its main attractions is that the instructors have enriched the learning experience by including an exclusive interview with Sean McMinn, an international AI expert from Hong Kong.

The content was created by the Living Lab & Data Hub and Alternative Credentials unit, both from the Institute for the Future of Education at Tec de Monterrey, specifically by professors:

  • Luis Morán, Leader of IFE Living Lab & Data Hub at the Tec
  • Olaf Román, Pedagogical Architect of Educational Innovation and Digital Learning at the Tec



The course is offered in 2 formats: free or paid.

Course open to the general public

Although the course developed by Tec de Monterrey is open to the general public, it is focused on people interested in Artificial Intelligence seeking to generate text content using natural language processing models.

The E-Learning project coordinator makes a special invitation to the Tec community to take this course, as well as to people wanting to get up to speed on how to use AI:

“Many of the Tec’s subjects are focusing on Artificial Intelligence, so this course would be a great way for you to get the latest information.”


Free and paid course options

The ChatGPT - Applications and Strategies course is available in 2 formats: free and paid.

  • Audit (or free) format: You can consult the content, but you won’t be able to take the exams or obtain a certificate, i.e., it would be reference material.
  • Verified (or paid) format: Students pay the amount of 491 pesos and receive full access to the course, take exams, upload their project, and obtain their certificate with the Tec and Coursera logos if they pass.

“We invite you to immerse yourself in the wonderful world of Artificial Intelligence, especially this tool that can help us with many of our everyday tasks,” explains Jorge Nava.

Prior to this agreement, the Tec was already offering free certifications on the platform through the La Tríada alliance, with courses from Tec de Monterrey, the University of Los Andes in Colombia, and the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile.

José Luis Mata, MOOC course administrator at the Tec, says that Tec de Monterrey has 20 specialized programs, 81 courses, and a total of 88 learning opportunities available on Coursera.
