Our contribuation to this year ED-Media 2021 conference about „Speech-based Learning with Amazon Alexa“ got published. The slides are already here online.
Almost every child and adult today have access to the Internet and different technologies like smartphones, tablets and co. Scientists recognized this very quickly and started to create a whole new way of learning. Therefore, learning applications have been developed to increase student and adult interest in studying and training. This paper describes the development of a speech-based Alexa Skill for educational purposes. The main goal is to help students as well as adults to learn and train mathematical basic calculation types. The skill was designed in a way that young students as well as adults can interact with Alexa in their own words. Therefore, the skill „Mathe Rätsel“ (Eng.: „Math riddle“) offers two difficulties to meet the needs of young and old users.
