About the Amazon Alexa Project

Student developed prototype for Alexa Skill

During the 2018 spring semester, Librarian Kim Bloedel partnered with  College of Business lecturer Kevin Felker to design and implement a voice technologies project for students enrolled in the Information Systems Capstone class. Student groups received Amazon Dots and were charged with developing a voice interface for a business library Amazon Alexa Skill.   The students' work served as a prototype for the UI Libraries Amazon Alexa skill.
