Explanation in steps
STU is not just a question and answer bot. It guides the user through the process of learning a study skill. This means that the user responds to its questions and does the exercises it is given. Therefore, STU is a real coach, making what is learned really become a habit.
This is how the bot will interpret input. It will try to give users commands, asking them to summarize the explanation so far or testing them with a question. This means that it is really a chatbot with which to learn, rather than an everyday question-and-answer bot.
