514 BYOD: Creating Your Own AI Chatbot for Adaptive Learning
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Wednesday, March 27
When you’re faced with the difficult task of engaging learners, one of the best ways to drive that engagement is interactivity. Chatbots offer a way to easily create and deploy interactivity and adaptive learning sequences in learning engagements. While new technologies like chatbots may seem daunting and inaccessible at first, they don’t have to be.
This session will walk you through the creation of a simple chatbot based on Google’s Dialogflow. You’ll come away understanding how to think about conversational interfaces, especially how they look at language and how you can easily work within their frameworks to create powerful conversational interfaces for learner engagement. The lessons learned here also work for any conversational interface, as the same conventions apply.
In this session, you will learn:
- How chatbots work
- How to create a training set for a chatbot
- How to work with Dialogflow
- What intents, entities, and parameters are, and how they work
