Education Technology Insights | Thursday, September 30, 2021

Education’s digital transformation allows teachers and students to engage and interact using educational software and platforms. 

Fremont CA: The education sector has long used developing technology to innovate and improve the learning process, but the COVID-19 epidemic has accelerated education's digital transformation. In virtual tutoring and e-learning contexts, new technologies and tools are becoming more vital for teachers and professors.

Below are five such digital transformation trends seen in the education sector recently:

Online platforms and learning software

Online platforms and learning software enable educational companies to move away from face-to-face connection and toward remote learning, linking teachers and students all over the world and allowing them to continue studying amid the COVID-19 crisis. Teachers can deliver lesson plans and evaluations in interactive and engaging ways using educational software and platforms to assist students in staying engaged in their new learning environment.

VR and AR

Virtual reality and augmented reality (VR/AR) aid in explaining complex topics and the visualization of complex matters. This makes learning easier and more exciting for students, especially when they're studying away and don't have access to all of their usual learning resources.

Artificial intelligence (AI)

With text and voice recognition techniques, AI and ML support students and tutors. Chatbots powered by artificial intelligence, for example, can communicate with and teach students while also analyzing their progress. Students' behavior during exams or tests is analyzed by AI evaluation systems and facial recognition technologies to ensure that they are not cheating. AI data analytics technologies enable each student to have a more tailored learning experience.

Mobile applications

Mobile phones and applications are just as crucial as web and desktop technology for students, especially in locations where students rely on newly established hotspots for Internet access. The educational industry must provide mobile learning applications so that these students can access information in ways that are appropriate for their circumstances; they must be able to access a wide range of study resources, such as PDFs, videos, audio recordings, and text, from devices available to them.

Video conferencing

By incorporating video conferencing into school and university systems, students can now join all of their classes, lectures, and webinars from any location. Students can also be onboarded and assessed using video conferencing.
