All over the world, the new Coronavirus (COVID-19) has an iron grip on people. Schools are closing, companies are making employees work from home and governments are struggling to keep up with the spread of the virus. Because many institutions do not have guidelines for this type of crisis, there is a lack of guidance. This results in many missed opportunities. But chatbots can help in this fight against the new Corona virus. Read how below.
So what do chatbots have to do with it?
Chatbots are the solution for this type of problem. They are automatic, scaleable, and modular enough to adapt to a strange situation like we’re in right now. Imagine students that are sent home with no real supports system set in place. They are told to ‘do their homework’ or ‘study for the exam’. However, students are not equipped to study at home for these amounts of time. To help these students be effective, you need large-scale support.
This is where chatbots come in. Take for instance our skills chatbot STU. A lot of the students sitting at home right now need support with coping with distractions or learning strategies. STU can help all of these students at once with tips on how to avoid distractions. It can also teach them how to study effectively or how to plan for the coming weeks.
This concept can be broadened to any company. Need to set guidelines and have employees know and implement them? A chatbot can help you communicate these to everyone at once. Need to teach people about the facts and fiction of the coronavirus? Have a chatbot tell them. Need something to help your students find the right study materials for them? Have a chatbot search curated sites for you.
Let’s think in possibilities instead of limitations. The coronavirus might have struck us, but we’ll win the war.
