Description
Students can have questions at all time of the day and night and it is unfeasible for faculty be there able to provide this immediate support. If faculty members could gather these questions, trend analysis of this data can provide information to drive future instruction. We propose using Artificial Intelligence, in the form of a Chatbot called DIVA and IBM Watson, to conduct this task for the instructor so students have immediate support. This will provide instructors more time to work one-to-one with students that really need it and time to make course changes from the data provided.
