The workshop began with participants quickly ideating and deciding a character, context, and goal for their chatbots. This was to seed context for their conversations. Using their initial ideas, I asked teams to improv with each other conversations their chatbots may have, while one of their team members takes notes on what worked and what did not work. Next, participants were led on how to install the relevant software and development environment on their computers. At the end of this process, all of the participants had successfully activated their chatbots and were able to have an initial interaction conversation with their chatbots, pre programmed to respond to “Hello”. Afterwords, I introduced the participants to Bot Personas, asking the participants to collaboratively fill out blank worksheets and discuss the personality elements of their chatbots. Working from one of the completed Bot Personas, I illustrated conversation mapping. The participants then mapped one of their own conversations. Once done, participants were instructed how to translate conversation maps to the chatbot configuration files. Finally, participants could test out the conversations with their bots to see if the conversations worked as intended, or if they needed to make changes.
