Here is a tutorial to get you started:

  • Step 1: Start by loading the project.

  • Step 2: This project uses our Alexa extension. Tell Alexa to "Open personal chatbot"

  • Step 3: Create an account by setting the username and password for yourself. Then access that account.

  • Step 4: Click the green flag and the Alexa on your screen will return to you an access code. Say "Connect" to your physical Alexa, followed by the access code. This will allow you to program your Alexa!

  • Step 5: Let's try to teach her our favorite band!
    Ask Alexa what your favorite band is and hear what else she has to say! What else could you teach Alexa?
