From building to building, classroom setups differ. Remembering how to interact with various interfaces can be confusing for professors moving between rooms. With Alexa, professors can walk into any classroom or lecture hall and start their class with simple, intuitive voice commands. For example, Professors can say, “Alexa start my class,” and she will dim the lights, open the projector, and close the blinds or any other pre-set, programmed commands. At the end of class, professors can also use Alexa to send their class reminders about upcoming deadlines or guest speakers. Alexa simplifies the process of managing the classroom so professors have one less thing to think about.
