Hey, Alexa, Should We Bring Virtual Assistants to Campus? These Colleges Gave Them a Shot
ASU’s newest student campus residential complex, Tooker House — home to more than 1,500 Fulton Schools students — is highlighted as an important proving ground for how virtual-assistant devices can enhance college students’ educational and campus life experiences. Tooker House makes Amazon’s Echo Dot available to residents. Echo Dot connects to the Alexa Voice Service that provides information, entertainment, news, messaging and personalized updates to users. ASU and other universities are paying attention to the impacts the technology is having on students.
