Answer Suite Comes to Blackboard Learn
- By Evan Tassistro
IntelliResponse had made its Answer Suite product accessible through Blackboard Learn.
The IntelliResponse answer system processes questions typed in plain English and delivers a best response as determined by the system. When more information is desired, the answer agent provides pull-down menus with related topics as well as options for e-mail, chat, or phone support. The answer agent technology can be deployed by subscribers through a Web site, as an information resource for customer service agents, or via mobile device.
Troy University, an online school already using the answer suite on its e-Campus Web site, will be the first to extend access to this service through courses using the Blackboard Learn platform. Blackboard is a browser-based Learning Management System which features posting of course materials and assignments, lecture and discussion delivery, test taking, and other functions relevant to online course management.
