FR205 – Best Practices for Designing a Chat Bot in Support of Learning | Friday, February 8 | 9:45 am to 10:45 am | Ballroom B

Session Description:

The allure of chatbots has grown among L&D professionals as the promise of artificial intelligence appeals to teams asked to do more with training their people. Yet, as with any emerging technology, the promise of “better and faster” can often fall flat with unforeseen obstacles and operational clumsiness.

This session will review chatbot design principles, including personality, timing of interactions, program types, personalization and messaging options, handling mistakes, and ideal staffing for chatbot projects. The ability to drive learner accountability and reinforcement makes the chatbot an ideal tool—if done well!
