AI Exchange is a blog modeled on an open access journal aiming to support discussion at UNL about the use of AI in teaching and education. It will contain articles, essays, tutorials, along with any feedback, e.g., “letters to the editors” in response to any of the postings.

We hope that readers and writers will find and share ways to use AI for the benefit of their students and themselves.


Moderated comments may be posted in response to blog articles, however, if a longer response is appropriate, please consider submitting a full blog post. If the article responds to other already posted articles, those will be linked to if the links are included in the submission. To submit a blog article, please email the article with any additional information needed, to with the subject “AI Exchange: blog article”.
