Redefining Education Industry Through Digital transformation
- Personalized Teaching and Learning: Learning platforms, softwares and digital devices are together creating countless new ways to modify education. This way, the academic potential, strengths, weaknesses, aptitude and learning pace of every single student is catered to. Precise, mobile and reliable applications are being created to teach students, help them practice their learnings, take assignments and manage their schedules.
The ‘one size fits all’ teaching model is being supplemented by adaptive, personalized learning pedagogies. Going forward, this will be the new trend in formal learning that will enable students to be technologically skilled and equipped for modern workplaces.
- Usage of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) for learning: Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are already buzzwords in the technology space. Their advent in e-learning has massively impacted the efficiency with which it is offered to students and the way it assesses their performance.AR and VR have the potential to increase interactivity, immersion, collaboration, and attention.
VR allows students using e-learning platforms on mobile devices to directly interact with study material. This keeps their engagement levels high and motivates them to learn more and better. On the other hand, AR facilitates teachers and trainers in performing tasks, they previously haven’t or cannot, in a safe environment.
- Mobile-based learning: A combination of the result of the sharp and sudden increase in the availability of online courses and programs, and the wide availability of online resources and books, you can now study from your phone. MOOC’s such as the well-known “Future Learn” MOOC allow you to access your course(s) from your smartphone. Just open the course, plug in your headphones, and follow the content and the classroom discussions! Whether you are riding the subway or taking a bus or a train you can instantly connect to the world full of learners and learning.
- Artificial intelligence and chatbots: AI technology may still be in its infancy, but it can have a significant impact on education. For example, chatbots can answer questions about homework, college regulations, paperwork requirements, and more, freeing up human resources for more complex issues.
More advanced applications involve assessment and learning; for example, tools like Virtual Learning Assistant, by Cognii, have great potential for one-on-one tutoring. Natural language processing (NPL) can answer open-response questions and provide instant feedback and scoring.
