AI is set to revolutionize the educational system as we know it, and the newly released ChatGPT plugins are a glimpse into this future. ChatGPT allows you to interact with various educational resources online, extract materials from university lectures, and create personalized and interactive learning experiences.
Getting Access to ChatGPT Plugins
ChatGPT Plugins are currently only available with the ChatGPT Plus Subscription. The monthly subscription fee is $22 (USD) and has various benefits. Features include access to the GPT-4 language model, priority access to the chat during peak times, browsing with Bing, and ChatGPT Plugins.
Create a ChatGPT Account with OpenAI, and once you have created your account, you are now ready to purchase the ChatGPT Subscription.
Once you have purchased ChatGPT Plus, you will see GPT-4; under that, you will see Plugins. If you don’t see plugins, you must go to Settings > Beta Features and then enable plugins.
1. EDX: Access to a Database of Courses
EDX provides access to a database of courses, universities, boot camps, and training programs across the internet and worldwide. By enabling the EDX plugin, you get to search that entire database. For example, when searching for AI from Harvard University available on edX, EDX delved into its database and provided a variety of choices.
2. Open Lecture: Delving Deeper into Courses
The Open Lecture plugin goes deeper into the courses. You can ask for the materials discussed within. This allows for targeted learning, so this plugin is your friend if you seek specific information from a legitimate source. For instance, Open Lecture provided a structured response that resembled a lecture when asked to explain large language models in AI. With added sources to the learning resources.
3. VoxScript: Searching YouTube Transcripts
VoxScript does one thing very well: it searches all of YouTube’s transcripts and provides that information inside GPT-4. This is extremely useful for compressing hours of lectures into minutes of reading. For example, you can take this video about Google’s New SELF-IMPROVING AI ‘Robocat’, and inside ChatGPT, you can ask it to create a short summary of the video. VoxScript summarized the entire transcript of this video without you having to watch the 10-minute video.
4. QuickRecall Plugin Generating Interactive Study Materials
GPT-4 has the hidden ability to generate flashcards for you. These are great for memorization or test preparation. You can enable the plugin and create personalized and interactive study materials. For example, you can ask it to search and create a list of 10 essential AI terms with beginner-friendly explanations, then use the QuickRecall plugin to create a deck of flashcards.
5. WebPilot Plugin
WebPilot is an amazing ChatGPT Plugin that allows you to search the web for any topic you like. In this example, we ask WebPilot to Get a list of threatened species. WebPilot is able to browse the web and get the most up-to-date and relevant data. Check out our next plugin, “Daigr.ma” to see how you can plot this data.
6. Daigr.am: Building Charts and Graphs
“Daigr.am” allows you to build charts, graphs, and more. For example, you can run a simple prompt from our previous example where we use WebPilot and “Daigr.am” together. This showcases the potential to combine multiple plugins for extremely impressive results.

The future of education is here, and it’s powered by AI. With the innovative ChatGPT plugins, learning becomes more accessible, interactive, and personalized than ever before. I welcome it with open arms and enjoy accelerating my learning with ChatGPT plugins.
The possibilities are endless, from accessing a vast database of courses with EDX, delving deeper into subjects with Open Lecture, summarizing YouTube lectures with VoxScript, and creating interactive study materials with QuickRecall.
