The seminar will focus on two use cases. You can choose as students and bring in your own ideas and approaches:

First, chatbots are relevant for learning content: Suggesting learning content, FAQs to answer thousands of learners like we have on openHPI or openWHO, and relevant tools for learners and teachers, provided via the chatbot (further information, quizzes, notes, etc.).

On the other hand, live interactions. This requires new technical tools, especially a video player for streaming sessions. This needs a new operation and allows other technical elements, such as addressing individual learners based on quiz participation or the like.

We plan to do this in groups of two to three, each with their own group focus. In any case, the following are to be accomplished: a technical-scientific research, an intermediate and final presentation and centrally the implementation prototype.
