EDUBOTS - Lessons from pedagogical chatbots

Pedagogical chatbots is about to be introduced at Scandinavian universities. The bots use pedagogical methods to trigger student engagement

The session will include key learnings from a lecturer at University of Oslo and his students using the pedagogical chatbots.

- What will the students ask the chatbot?
- Will the chatbot increase the activity between lecturers?
- How will the students experience the chatbots?

The chatbots are a part of a $1M research project including University of Oslo, BI Norwegian Business School among others.

Pst. Of course, you can a chat with a pedagogical chatbot yourself :)
