AWS Lex Chatbot in the Classroom

Having a digital assistant in the classroom has the potential to provide significant value for both the teacher and the student. For example, rather than the teacher having to repeat answers continually, or identify resources for students individually, a digital assistant can fill this role quite effectively. The potential to provide significant value assumes that the system's developer understands the types of problems that automation can solve, and that the school has the resources to invest in its implementation. If some small timesavers can be identified, schools with technical resources can leverage a chatbot in their classrooms.

Since then, the term used to describe a small modular piece of learning content is dependent on what is trendy at the time. My personal favorite came out of a recent discussion with a client about their vision of "bite-sized, snackable" content. After going back and forth some we came up with the term, "snackable learning nuggets."
