W312HOL - MakerLab---Let's Build an Alexa Skill for Learning

Wednesday, February 06 | 3:00 PM - 5:15 PM | Room: 1JK

Session Description:
Alexa is one of the most widely used smart devices in the United States today. It's a disruptive game changer in the learning and development space, but adoption is drastically low because learning professionals aren't sure how to integrate the technology into their ecosystems. In this session, you will hack your way through developing an Alexa skill with no coding skills required. You will discover the core concepts of voice user interface (VUI) development, learn basic VUI terminology, brainstorm learning experience use cases for a VUI, and develop an Alexa VUI skill prototype that you can take back to your workplace to demo and expand.

Application on the Job:
Create compelling voice user interface designs for Alexa or other conversational artificial intelligence (AI) or chatbots.
Discuss use cases where a conversational AI could have the most impact in the learning space to drive adoption.
Create an interactive prototype to demonstrate the abilities and potential use cases of conversational AI like Alexa.
