Step 2. You can further customise the options suggested by design assistant . Here are the steps that you can follow:

    • Create
    • Inspire me! (which provides a mix of levels)

  5. Advanced Options: Click the arrow beside “Advanced options” to explore additional settings, including changing the output language.

Step 3. Once you have configured your settings, click “Generate”. Review each discussion for accuracy and bias, then choose the ones you’d like to add to your course.
