How the conversational agent work and establish dialogue between students

We would like to inform you of an exciting opportunity to learn about and participate in an international community devoted to the use of Conversational Agents for Learning. Conversational Agents (CAs) are an innovative technology that uses Artificial Intelligence techniques to provide more personalized and fruitful interactions for learning.

CAs have been implemented in a variety of educational contexts and activities and showed learning benefits such as productive dialogues and increased engagement for learners. Within this context, the European Project “The colMOOC: Integrating Conversational Agents and Learning Analytics in MOOCs” has developed and tested customizable Conversational Agent tools to enhance collaborative interactions and learning experiences in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) (please visit the ColMOOC´s website for more information).

We would like to invite you all to join and register in the Virtual Community of Practice (VCoP) of the colMOOC project!

The VCoP-Agents for Learning aims to engage educational practitioners (teachers, instructional designers, researchers) in a community interested in the use of Conversational Agents in Education. With your registration in the VCoP, you will be able:

  • To exchange ideas and knowledge on the use of Conversational Agents in Education and interact with an international community of teachers, experts in Conversational Agents and researchers.
  • To learn and try an innovative Conversational Agent tool for teachers and learners. The VCoP´s website provides access to a demo tool where you can see how teachers design learning tasks with CAs and how students interact with agents.
  • To keep updated about the current events of the colMOOC project.
  • To review and contribute with examples of educational scenarios with Conversational Agents in technology-enhanced learning environments.

We believe that your participation in the VCoP will be insightful and fascinating. You will always have access to the community portal and you can invite friends from your network.
