Ody the Chatbot

About This Bot

I created this chatbot to help students understand rhetoric and writing a bit better. Ody can answer basic questions about rhetoric, the appeals, MLA format, and more with new topics added weekly. It can't answer specific questions about classroom policies or learning objectives as those change from semester to semester. So you could ask Ody "What is rhetoric?" It knows the answer. But Ody couldn't tell you what we did in class on Friday, though, because it doesn't know.

To use the chatbot, just type a question or a subject in the chat box at the bottom. The chatbot will look for key words and phrases in your questions to match you with a helpful answer.

If the chatbot can't answer your question, the chatbot will let you know. Just ask your question and include your email, and I'll get back to you within 24 hours.
