Generation Z’s use of technology in their daily life is changing their expectations of education. As technology unlocks new ways to engage, collaborate and learn, how can universities adapt to prevent the student voice from getting lost in the noise?
Cloud Collective has developed “Question Bot” aka “QBot” in partnership with the University of New South Wales. QBot is a world-first, AI-infused, Microsoft Teams integrated chatbot that answers student queries. It uses machine learning to build a body of knowledge that students can tap for 24/7 support.
For forward-thinking education institutions, these tools have limitless potential – from improving student engagement, to achieving better learning outcomes.
The UNSW story: Create a revolution in education:

Teams Quick Start: Teams, a single integrated communication platform
Students Analytics: One-click PowerBI dashboard to see student results

A recent study shows that by 2021 the application of AI in education and learning will increase by 47.5%. With bots here to stay, there is no doubt that the use of AI will grow even more rapidly, not only in education, but in every industry.
Even today we are surrounded by this technology. We see it in everything from automatic parking systems, smart sensors for photos, and personal assistance.
Similarly, the uses for AI in education are continually expanding as the technology improves and younger generations are incorporating AI into their learning experience.
