Abstract

This paper describes the development of chatbots that can help learners make the most appropriate use of a large body of content. The purpose of a COntent-based Learning Assistant, COLA, is to suggest optimal educational paths, along with a persuasive and empathic coaching. COLAs are supported by a novel technology, iCHAT, based on the cognitive engine Watson (by IBM).
