In flipped classroom and other blended learning approaches, providing meaningful and prompt feedback requires teachers’ time and attention to their students. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the fastest growing advanced technology category in various fields. In particular, chatbot can provide 24/7 support to teachers and multiple learners at the same time, with personalised support and guide them in an engaging way throughout the virtual learning environment.

Creating a chatbot from scratch requires complex computer programming skills but there are more and more chatbots for learning and teaching. In this workshop, participants would have a hands-on experience on the free chatbot tools in this workshop, participants can reflect on better practices and design considerations in AI-facilitated learning and teaching.

Upon completion of this seminar, the participants will be able to:
