During this project we will design, implement, and test an English language learning environment incorporating an AI-assisted conversation agent. We will perform market research to ensure our product provides an in-demand service, identify target users and intended functionality, and decide on language topics to be presented via our learning environment. We will implement a virtual learning scenario for teaching individuals and/or groups, a conversational agent for content presentation and/or scenario moderation, natural language models for processing and/or generating lesson material, etc. We will prepare a testing strategy for evaluating the product prototype in line with our success criteria, conduct tests at local institutions, and evaluate test data. Because of the multi-faceted nature of the project, various skill-sets are required. The following skills are of value to the project: - Back-End Application Development - Front-End Application Development - Pedagogy - User Interface Design - Human Computer Interaction - Computational Linguistics, NLP
