Digital technologies have disrupted education and its delivery across the globe – there has been a sea of change in the way education is accessed, the most notable one being the shift from classroom learning to learning-from-anywhere. Now educators from any part of the world can deliver quality education to learners in any other part of the world thanks to the seamless connectivity that is becoming increasingly accessible worldwide.
Now although access to education has widened, it still has a long way to go before it can achieve universal access. There are still many children who are denied the fruits of education in many underprivileged parts of the world. Technology is making rapid progress in closing this gap, and the delivery of education has become more inventive and engaging than ever before.
AI in Education – Not as futuristic as you might think.
Technology can become the “wings” that will allow the educational world to fly faster than ever before—if we will allow it. – Jenny Ariedge
Embracing digital technologies has improved classroom learning quality, enhanced student engagement, made significant progress in how learners and educators plan their sessions and has made learning a more fun and engaging affair.
Studies have shown that introducing digital learning tools has helped students gain better scores and grades than before.
Educators and technologists need to develop more scalable and inclusive technological innovations to further improve the quality of education available to students everywhere. The Edutech industry is at the forefront in making this happen, and the effects are already visible.
Teaching, training and coaching are no longer restricted to personal, face-to-face interactions. With the use of cognitive analysis and data analytics, AI is automating processes and identifying learning gaps. AI-based solutions can analyze student behavior, provide customized feedback, offer suggestions for improvement, thereby enhancing their learning experience. One of the most compelling use cases of AI-based solutions is intelligent instruction design, which can ensure that students across a range of ages and skills are given challenges they can address based on their abilities, and can be redirected to challenges that they need to work on. This gives AI the ability to turn courses into interactive and engaging experiences that draw students deeper into the world of learning – capturing their interest and then sustaining that curiosity.
AI can also perform routine administrative tasks like managing paperwork, communicating with parents, budget management and even grading school papers.
Bringing the future closer – Experion’s foray into AI in Education
Experion has been helping businesses and educational institutions leverage the power of AI in teaching and coaching. We collaborated with a leading Edutech solution provider in developing an application that enhanced and upgraded voice analysis technology to improve its performance. The solution analyzes individual users, their intent, behavior, and skill level and develop training modules to cater to their individual training needs.
The Edutech solution used voice analysis technology in improving the learning outcome of the participants. Voice analysis could identify participants’ emotional state and could provide better real-time feedback and tailor-made learning modules for individual participants. The result of this personalized approach based on voice analysis was better learning experiences for everyone.
Some of the outcomes of using this application included:
- Maximized sales intensity for each individual.
- Personalized user experience of individual users
- Positive learning outcomes achieved – Enabled up to 90% retention of information in learners.
- Ensured interactive learning.
- The application’s adaptive learning capabilities helped client to scale up their system to cater to growing customer base.
