What does the listener learn

Early in the 2020 COVID-19 crisis, Technically Write IT (TWi) partnered with Tech Writers Without Borders to match volunteer technical writers with non-profit organisations. TWi designed a chatbot that was used to gather and manage volunteer data.

The volunteer response was overwhelming, and the chatbot became a necessary tool for managing the response efficiently.

Content

In this tutorial, you'll learn how to determine the use case for a chatbot and a design approach to creating a conversational chatbot. The tutorial will be hands-on as you will have the opportunity to create your own chatbot.

Previous Knowledge
