This online course and community of practice is designed for Educators in Higher Education,
and created to co-explore the best practice use of chatbots.
The community consist of HE professionals with a curious mind, and an interest to improve teaching & learning with the help of learning technology and new innovative methodologies. It is a multicultural community with members from all over Europe, it’s open to everyone - and it’s free to join.
“Introduction to Chatbots, for Educators” is an online course, designed as a so called cMOOC. What does that mean?
”cMOOCs are based on a connectivist pedagogical model that views knowledge as a networked state and learning as the process of generating those networks and adding and pruning connections.”
“cMOOCs are distributed, and they emphasise, the importance of learner autonomy. As a consequence of increased learner control, numerous tools and technologies are used during the delivery of an open course. Each learner selects the technologies that he or she prefers to use.”
Does chatbots really have a role to play in the context of education? Can it really support teaching & learning?
Well, what do you think? Join the discussions, and explore the pros and cons and potential user cases.
