If you have an Amazon Echo, you can now use it to connect with Lessons on the Ubi Portal!

Go to alexa.amazon.com and under Skills, look up Ubi.

You can then connect your account and created lessons with "Alexa" as the trigger and can have "Alexa" as the action for a voice reply.

"Alexa, tell portal to x" is what you'd ask your Echo.

Just a note - you can't push announcements to the Echo. You can only have an Alexa Reply as a result of an input through the device.

Hope this is helpful!

In the future would we be able to push responses through alexa without a dedicated Alexa Skill prompt.

Hi Darc, I think that would be a good idea as well to just have push responses directly through Alexa. Hopefully it can be made to happen!
