With AI-powered tools, you can enhance understanding, improve retention, and learn more efficiently without sacrificing academic integrity.
A Step-by-Step Guide to Using a Chatbot in College
AI tools, or chatbots, can help you brainstorm ideas for a term paper, or condense a semester’s worth of notes in a comprehensive study guide to help you study for finals.
Chatbot-assisted paper writing
- Consolidate your thoughts and concepts related to your chosen subject.
- Ask the chatbot to generate an outline of the topic.
- Compare your thoughts and ideas with the chatbot’s suggestions and discuss your paper with the bot.
- Request the chatbot for alternative views.
- Independently compose your paper, verifying any data provided by the bot and citing your references.
- After completing your paper, request the chatbot to revise your work adhering to the relevant style guidelines. You might also ask the bot to make your document more engaging.
Creating a customized study guide
- Select a subject you wish to gain a deeper understanding of.
- Request the chatbot for the basic principles of the chosen subject.
- If you come across unfamiliar concepts, ask the bot for clarification.
- Request the bot to provide a few examples related to the subject.
- Use the bot to formulate flashcards for the keywords discussed during the interaction.
- Transfer these flashcards into Quizlet or a similar study aid to review the content more effectively and efficiently.
How to Maintain Academic Integrity When Using Artificial Intelligence
You must maintain academic honesty when using Chatbots and other AI tools for college assignments. Some of the guidelines to follow include:
- Only use AI tools to clarify or reinforce concepts you have already learned in your courses. Do not rely on them as a replacement for attending lectures, reading assigned materials, or studying course notes.
- Double-check any information provided by an AI study tool against reputable sources. While AI continues to become more advanced, chatbots and virtual assistants can still provide inaccurate information due to training data and algorithm limitations.
- Do not use AI tools to complete your assignments or take your exams. This would be considered cheating, and you could face serious consequences from your university.
- Cite any information obtained from an AI study tool in your work to attribute concepts and ideas properly. Treat AI tools as you would any other reference source.
