701 Voice Technologies: Microlearning Beyond the Status Quo

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM Thursday, September 19

Voice-controlled technologies like Alexa, Siri, and Google Home have become disruptive game­-changers in people's home lives. But they can disrupt the learning and development space as well, in particular for short microlearning experiences and support.

In this session, you'll discover ways to leverage voice technology to take microlearning beyond the status quo. You'll look at how to use the core concepts of voice user interface (VUI) development and learn basic VUI terminology. You'll discuss voice-based learning metrics and brainstorm what learning experiences we can create VUI for both Google Home and Alexa.

In this session you will learn:

  • How smart devices like Alexa and Google Home work at a high-level
  • Key voice design elements and their role in the process
  • How to design a voice user interface learning experience
  • Core principles and best practices of VUI design
