Alexa Education Skills

We're excited to introduce the Alexa Education Skill API (Preview), a new set of interfaces that allow Education Technology (Ed Tech) developers to build voice experiences for parents and students 13 and older. Now in preview, the Alexa Education Skill API integrates with Education Technology (Ed Tech) systems such as Learning Management Systems (LMS), Student Information Systems (SIS), Classroom Management providers, and massively open online course (MOOC) platforms quickly and easily. Parents and students can request information about school work and assignments directly from Alexa without the added step of opening a skill. Simply ask, “Alexa, what did Kaylee do in school today?” or “Alexa, what is my homework tonight?” In addition, parents and students will be able to ask more detailed questions like “Alexa, how did Kaylee do on her Math test?” before the end of the year. If you are interested in learning more about the preview, please fill out the form below.

We worked closely with a variety of leading Ed Tech companies to develop the Alexa Education Skill API. These developers have released skills to their customers with the use of the API:

Kickboard

Blackboard (Coming Soon)

Allows parents and students over 13 to get upcoming assignments.

Canvas

Updates their existing Canvas skill to enable customers to ask for updates on Assignments and School Communications for parents and students over 13.

Coursera

Allows students over 13 to stay updated on their coursework and check their progress for any courses they are enrolled in on the Coursera platform.

ParentSquare

Enables parents to get school messages, posts and updates with Alexa to help parents stay connected to school.
