Voicebots on Amazon Alexa

The CL Alexa Bots

Career Launcher has released the first set of voice-enabled educational skills built on Amazon's Alexa platform. It is widely anticipated that conversational AI will radically transform how students interact with learning content, particularly on devices like the Amazon Echo.

The ability to hold personalized conversations with every learner, using natural language-based voice interaction, is a great way to simulate how a real-life teacher engages with students. These skills can be accessed on Amazon Echo devices, as well as on the free Alexa app available for download from both Google Play and Apple's App Store.
