Alexa Education Skills

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.
