The Edubots Project: Have you interacted with a chatbot sometime the last year? Perhaps you have even used it in the context of learning and teaching? The Edubots project is about exploring the best practice use of “chatbots“ in Higher Education. We are asking ourselves how a conversational agent might help improve the learning experience and the learning outcomes of students. Join the webinar to learn more about this topic by consortium leader Lars Willner. He is also CEO of the Norwegian company Differ.Chat that has developed an innovative social chatbot named `Bo´, designed to help students connect with peers and break the ice in 1-1 or group conversations.
