Presenting outputs created with AI

There are some important aspects to consider when presenting your outputs if you have used Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the process. This chapter will guide you through the process of using AI to create presentations, including tools for presenting and images. We will look at the scope of using AI in presentations or your outputs (such as essays and literature reviews), like checking grammar. Finally, we will then explore the ethical considerations involved in using AI when presenting, such as acknowledging the source of the images, the importance of referencing AI and acknowledging its use and avoiding the use of hallucinations in your references.


Software such as Grammarly can only be used in an assessment task if it is specifically approved in the Subject Outline. The use of software that is not specifically approved in the Subject Outline may constitute a breach of Charles Sturt’s Student Misconduct Rule 2020 and Academic Integrity Policy. To get feedback with grammar, punctuation or strategies to write more clearly, submit a draft of your assignment to Studiosity.


How to use AI to create presentations

Various software and applications have already integrated AI into their interface to help create, enhance and deliver visually appealing presentations. There are also more specific tools you could look at, a couple of examples include:

  • Beautiful.AI: another subscription AI presentation tool, uses a back-end system called DesignerBot to create AI generated presentations that can include figures, tables, infographics, charts and other data. Mostly aimed at businesses, but can create professional looking slides for a variety of contexts. Also includes a separate prompter to create AI generated images.

How to use AI in delivering presentations

Instead of getting GenAI tools to create a presentation for you, use them to assist you in the creation process by:

  • Brainstorming ideas for the content of your presentation
  • Suggesting a structure or activities for your presentation to aid in engagement
  • Provide feedback on the presentation. An example is PowerPoint’s Speaker Coach.



How to use AI in your written outputs

Providing content directly generated by AI is unlikely to be allowed. But there are other appropriate ways to use AI to improve your writing.

  • Improve your written communication skills by refining your language and style using a tool such as Grammarly
  • Creative decorative images for presentations using tools such as DALL-E, Midjourney or Firefly
  • Restore low quality images or upscale images, LetsEnhance is one example.
  • Help analyse data by creating tables and collating information. GenAI tools can collate input data when using the right prompts. Careful about the data you enter into a GenAI tool in terms of privacy.
  • Check coding errors or formulas with GenAI tools or more specific AI coding checkers.

Key Point

When using AI in your assessments don’t forget to document the use, review the accuracy of the content produced plus acknowledge and reference the tool used.

Acknowledging the use of AI generated material

At a minimum, you should include a declaration of use that explains what technologies, if any, you have used in working on your assessment. Provide a description of the AI tool used, how the information was generated, including the prompts you used, and the date accessed. You could add this declaration as a footnote or at the end of your reference list but you should check with the subject coordinator to clarify.



In certain circumstances, in addition to a declaration, you may also be required to cite and reference material generated by artificial intelligence as you would any other source in your assessment. Academic skills provide suggestions for referencing GenAI in APA 7 style and the APA Style Blog has How to cite ChatGPT.



Responsible use of AI

When using AI tools for study and research, you need to recognise the ethical risks as well as risks to your academic integrity. Relying on AI tools can reduce your ability to develop critical thinking and research skills (Charles Darwin University Library, 2023).

Some of the key ethical concerns include:

Understanding the limitations and issues of AI means you can critically evaluate the tools you use and the content generated to make sure you are using tools ethically and with academic integrity.
