Alexa in Higher Education

Master the UI of the future

Voice user interfaces (VUI), such as Alexa, can transform education for college students. Alexa is Amazon's voice service and the brain behind millions of devices including the Amazon Echo. Alexa provides capabilities, or skills, that enable customers to create a more personalized experience. There are now tens of thousands of skills from companies like Uber and Capital One as well as innovative designers and developers.

From training the next voice designers and developers to reinventing life on campus or in the classroom, the possibilities with voice are endless. Whether you are a college student, professor, IT administrator, or ed-tech professional, Alexa can help you reimagine your world.
