Using Chatbots to Engage, Support, and Inform Your Learning Audience

Margie Meacham and Joe Ganci at Learning Solutions 2019

You can’t be available to provide coaching and feedback 24/7, but an intelligent chatbot can! All over the world, people are using artificial intelligence to manage their bank accounts, book travel, and find great products, so why not use this same technology to help people learn new skills and advance their careers? You might have already considered using artificial intelligence to bring the “wow factor” to your next project, but it can sound like a complicated and expensive endeavor—especially for your first time.

In this session at Learning Solutions, you’ll develop ideas for realistic, engaging, two-way conversations in your next learning program. You’ll review examples of chatbots that introduce a course and deliver prework, give embedded performance feedback during the course, and share personalized tips after the course. You’ll discover programming tools to get started without specialized skills or equipment. You’ll recognize how easy it is to integrate a chatbot with what you’re already using: Articulate Storyline, Adobe Captivate, Trivantis Lectora, even Microsoft PowerPoint. You’ll save money with a list of free or very low-cost sources for the tools and training you need to build your first bot. You’ll gain a checklist to avoid common beginner mistakes and ensure that your new AI is chatting away as soon as possible.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to identify at least three ways to incorporate a chatbot into your next learning project using the tools you have today
  • Where to locate the training, software, and tools to help you implement a smart chatbot easily and affordably
  • How to avoid common pitfalls experienced by new developers, so you can get your chatbot talking with your customers and learning audience as soon as possible
  • Why artificial intelligence has a place in the near future of learning

And please let me know if you’re coming so we can plan to connect.
