AI means Artificial intelligence. Chatbots are AI software that can simulate a conversation with the user . They are mostly used in applications, websites, and messaging applications.
They are often used by an organization or company to interact with their customers or clients as a medium of communication.
An example is the Google Assistant, which replies the user by text replies and also in a voice form just like a human does.
Now, the question is,
How can AI chatbots be used in education ?
The use of chatbots can create an interactive way of learning for the student, just like they do interact with a tutor or teacher.
They will get instant feedback and that’s what needed for a better learning. Isn’t it..?
Bots can keep a track of their progress and increase their skills in many ways. They can also be programmed for automated notifications and reminders and alarms for studying. They can remind for
revision of a certain subject that you earlier read, or notify you with updated quizzes on the platform you’re using, and can set alarms for your study break and resume..!
These intelligent bots can easily adapt to the way a student learns and thus provides a more personalized experience in learning. Everyone has a certain pace of grasping things and learning them, thus bots are a great option for these type of facilities. They provide you with the personalized things or recommendations, according to your requirements. They don’t get overwhelming unlike a real teacher sometimes get.
It can simplify a teacher’s job. It can help an educator by managing their routine. Whenever the teacher is not available, these bots can opt for their replacement.

They can organize better. As they are bots, they have a huge memory unlike us. And can be used to store the data of the students, their curriculum progress, their reports, etc. The data will be easily available this way, when needed just by a simple search of the student or report.
