Here’s How AUBH is Pioneering Innovation & Student Centricity

AUBH launches Alexa Skills to connect with students through voice technology.

Just recently, the American University of Bahrain (AUBH) launched two Alexa Skills, adding voice technology to its campus.

This is aimed towards providing the students, parents, and educators alike with the ability to use their voice to deepen the learning experience and enrich university life whilst also providing critical academic and campus information.

The AUBH Campus Alexa Skill offers convenient ways to navigate the campus. It also provides help in learning about what the University has to offer by asking questions to Amazon Echo devices installed inside the campus buildings.

Students will also be able to connect to campus information and events through the AUBH student Alexa Skill. It also integrates with the University’s system, allowing students to access coursework, grades, and other school communication through the Alexa smartphone app.

Committed to their promise to offer an innovative, high-tech experience to their students and faculty, AUBH launched these Alexa Skills in confidence that they will provide a unique, customized, and unmatched campus experience.

The launch of the new Alexa Skills represents another milestone for the University in driving innovation, not just locally, but also regionally. It is in line with their “borderless” approach to shaping globally competent and tech-savvy leaders.

Bahrain has been pioneering in the MENA region on innovation by ranking first for ICT readiness by the UN. The Kingdom is also one of the first in the region to roll out 5G, enabling new technologies like AI, cloud computing, and fintech.

The implementation of Alexa Skills at AUBH came after the launch of the region’s first AWS data centers in Bahrain back in 2019. This played an integral role in delivering Bahrian’s cloud-first policy and adoption of cloud technologies by the public and private sectors, especially during COVID-19.
