New MBA Course Thumbnails in Moodle!

New designs for MBA course thumbnails in Moodle make a small but very noticeable change to the user experience in Moodle. These were done using a human-directed AI curation approach.

The process of creating a course thumbnail takes several steps to achieve the best visual result.

  1. The first thing that has to be done is researching the course and its main points,
  2. Check what images are generated using a variety of AI art platforms i.e Midjourney, Bing Image Creator, Blue Willow, Stable Diffusion, DALL-E and then choose the one that produced the best images. (Midjourney 5 was chosen)
  3. 1 thumbnail was chosen from approximately 3-5 generated options.

Please note: The original generated images had to very often be edited and manipulated further to produce a usable result.

See below for a comparative image of the Moodle dashboard with and without our new thumbnails.

Move the handle left and right to compare the old with the new.
