The recent implementation of ChatGPT, an AI innovative tool, has roused interest across the world due to its vast capabilities to create an awe-inspiring spectrum of results based on simple searches. This interest has been extended to higher education institutions to determine the possible values that ChatGPT offers to both students and instructors in online learning. The purpose of this study is to investigate how using ChatGPT transforms online education. Specifically, we focus on evaluating ChatGPT implications in teaching, learning, assessment, and institutional policy in higher education using Rogers’ theory of Diffusion of Innovation.
