AI Generated Handbooks
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   2 months ago

I have always tried to provide PDF handbooks for my video courses. They're an excellent way to follow along when watching the video or to refer back to after you have finished the video. If you want to brush up on the material covered without having to watch the video again, handbooks can serve as better references than the videos themselves.

Traditionally, these handbooks needed to be written by a human. This person would either transcribe the video into text or paraphrase it, then manually insert screenshots. As you can imagine, this is a very time-consuming process.

From a business standpoint, many students used to purchase the handbooks at the beginner levels. However, as we moved into more advanced developer lessons, fewer people purchased them. As a result, I stopped creating handbooks after Developer 13. So, there are numerous lessons from Developer 14 up to 44, for which, for a long time, I had no handbooks.

Over the past couple of months, with the advent of AI, I have been developing software that automatically generates these handbooks. The software works by taking the transcript, determining where the keyframes are, and identifying where the AI believes a screenshot should be inserted. I've managed to automate this process to the point where it does about 95% of the work for me. The problem is, it's not perfect. Sometimes it includes too many screenshots, while other times it places screenshots in the wrong spots, but I consider this a work in progress.

In any case, I will be releasing the AI-generated handbooks to supplement the courses. I believe they are better than not having any handbooks at all. For individuals wanting a reference for the class material, these handbooks should still prove very effective. I am also collaborating with human editors to clean up any mistakes and ensure they are in the best possible shape. In the meantime, you may notice "AI generated" next to some of the handbooks. This tag is simply to clarify their origin. As we make updates with human-edited revisions, we will update each page accordingly.

Of course, if you have any questions, please post them down below. Thank you!
