Assignment Considerations

Before assigning students to work on projects involving AI chatbots, or deciding to create an account, make sure to review the privacy policy of the tool(s) you've selected. Also, consider what benefit you may be providing the developer to improve the tool's algorithm.

ChatGPT Privacy Policy

OpenAI (the company that designed ChatGPT) collects a lot of data from ChatGPT users. 

Educator TIP: Before asking your students to use ChatGPT (if you plan to do so), please read over the privacy policy with them and allow them to opt-out if they do not feel comfortable having their data collected and shared as outlined in the policy.

Other possibilities:

  • Not asking students to create ChatGPT accounts and instead doing instructor demos
  • Encouraging students to use burner email accounts (to reduce personal data collection) if they choose to use the tool
  • Using one shared class login
