Have you ever wanted to build a chatbot that was tailored to your interests and needs? Join us for a fun workshop that will equip you with the expertise to design, customize, and refine your own chatbot!

The workshop will guide participants through the entire process of customizing a chatbot. Starting with a solid design framework, you’ll learn how to outline a chatbot that meets a specific user need, incorporating critical elements such as conversation flow, user intents, and responses. We’ll share customization techniques that allow your chatbot to embody a unique personality to engage its users. You’ll gain hands-on experience with testing methodologies to assess functionality and user experience, leveraging feedback to make your chatbot better with each iteration.

Our workshop will explore these questions:

  • How could we build chatbots that are both flexible and predictable in teaching and learning contexts?
  • Which techniques can make interactions feel unique and personal?
  • What strategies can help your chatbot consistently deliver high-quality responses?
