Academics from the OU and the University of Zagreb have collaborated to launch the first Croatian chatbot about reading. OU academics Dr Shafquat Towheed, Senior Lecturer in English, and Dr Alessio Antonini, Research Associate for STEM, are working alongside Dr Velna Rončević and Luka Ostojić from the University of Zagreb in Croatia.

To launch the chatbot, the team is hosting a free online interactive workshop with Croatian students and researchers. They will remotely demonstrate the READ-IT toolkit, then invite participants to record their reading memories via the tool.

The workshop will include an introduction to the READ-IT reading toolkit, a technical overview, with a Q&A and an opportunity to engage with the chatbot and share reading memories. 

If you're interested and would like to know more, information on the project can be found via the launch news page.
