Modern society has embraced technology as a crucial aspect of day-to-day life and is constantly evolving to meet the needs of the community. The advent of technological advances has transformed several sectors, and the education sector is the most influenced. It now plays a fundamental role in improving teaching and learning processes. Innovative tools now combine classroom education with e-learning to provide better engagement, access and learning methods. Online education is becoming a norm and with everything digitized, it has become easier for new age platforms to reach Indian households efficiently. Education should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their age, caste, economic background or social status, and new technologies have accelerated this process to make education available to everyone in an efficient manner.
New Age Technology: A Benefit for E-Learning
The pandemic disrupted and stopped almost every industry in the markets, especially the education sector. The need of the hour was to save the precious time of the students and make use of the latest technology to remodel the entire education system. The idea of e-learning was made possible by digital empowerment and the accessibility of the Internet within the reach of students. Unlike traditional methods, education now does not correspond only to books or attending physical classrooms. Technological applications in the education sector now make learning more collaborative while making students think about the essence of the online content that is offered to them. This is how new age technology is transforming e-learning in India.
Enhancing student engagement with AR and VR
Students learn best when they participate in interactive activities and games. Unlike traditional pedagogy, technology has enabled students to have an approach to learning, including animations, gamification and experiential learning. AR and VR create immersive learning environments with simulations to make students understand learning concepts in a simplified way. It provides digital elements with a live view to create augmented experiences, allowing students to get a fair idea of the world around them in a realistic way. Digital classrooms can be set up with a 360-degree view through VR with creative learning material, saving students a lot of time as they can have unlimited access to recordings. AR/VR e-learning is controllable, safe and easy to control while creating unique learning experiences for students.
LMS and virtual assistants for adaptive learning
AI and ML, when incorporated into virtual education, have the potential to revolutionize the education system. E-learning is now facilitated by virtual teaching on learning platforms with LMS (Learning Management System) integration. AI-based tools can be used to create personalized learning content, which can bridge the learning gap as the student can learn at their own pace in a flexible manner. Students can have virtual assistants, who can help them learn complex subjects while also being a support system for teachers. To measure student progress, content analysis is used to follow a data-driven approach. Based on the results, teachers can review student performance and can create personalized teaching techniques.
Facilitate distance education with Cloud technology
Cloud technology is an enabler of distance education. Flexible data storage, scalability options, premium pricing structure, and top-notch security have made Cloud popular in the edtech industry. As with the implementation of this technology, students can access their educational content from anywhere on any device. Communication has become easier on e-learning platforms through APIs, and learning material is available online on the Internet with the ability to customize it. Hosting webinars, uploading content and running MOOCs for students is easier with Cloud technology as it has no limitations compared to on-premises systems. Plus, there’s an extra layer of data security with encryption benefits, keeping PII safe in the cloud.
All things considered
For the Indian education system, new age technologies like AI, ML, AR/VR and Cloud are game changers. They have tailored learning experiences for students and facilitated personalized e-learning. Gamification is becoming the norm and interactive learning sessions have had a positive impact on students’ lives, keeping their interest level high. Technology has also made teachers more approachable and accessible while bridging the communication gap. The course curriculum can be easily updated with on-demand content, which has improved learning outcomes. As technology continues to change, new methods of personalizing content, user-centered learning platforms, and teaching methodologies will emerge in the teaching-learning arena to deliver rapid education through e-learning .
