Recent AI developments have drastically changed nearly every industry. The Education industry particularly is one of the sectors that offer the phenomenal potential for the implementation of Artificial Intelligence in its operations. AI has transformed the academic environment and made it more accessible, convenient, and personalized for students around the globe. According to a recent study by E-school News, the implementation of AI in the education sector will grow by 47.5% in 2021.
To put it concisely, here are four ways how Artificial Intelligence is personalizing and transforming the education industry:
1. Personalized Learning Experience
Today, with the help of big data analytics and AI, personalized learning experiences can be designed for students. Each student will be able to learn and get a unique educational experience that is totally customized to his learning abilities. That will encourage students to study smart and keep them engaged with the courses. It will also help to overcome the challenges of disengaged students or high dropout rates.
Likewise, AI-based personalized learning systems could guide instructors to fully understand the learning ability and style of each student – helping them to tailor their teaching skills based on each student’s progress in the course. Moreover, with the implementation of chatbots, institutions will be better able to answer all student-related queries in their respective areas of interest. This pool of big data will enable institutions to come up with creative innovative programs to enhance student's overall educational journey.
2. Inclusion of Smart Content
The notion of smart content is a hot topic these days. The invention of robotic processes to produce digital content with the same level of effectiveness and personalization as a human instructor would do has grabbed the attention of educational institutions. This concept has already paved its way in classrooms where AI is used to digitize the textbook content. It has also enabled personalized digital learning interfaces that cater to students of all grades and ages.
One of the top practical implementations of this concept is Cram101. This technique uses AI to modify the textbook content into a brief study guide highlighting the gist of a chapter that is easy to understand by every student. It also creates quiz sessions and flashcards for students to prepare themselves for exams.
3. Automated Administrative Tasks
By now we know that AI has huge potential in providing opportunities in accelerating and automating cumbersome administrative tasks. It benefits both educational admins and professors by grading homework and evaluating students’ performance in different courses. This automated grading technique gives professors more time to interact, understand and respond to every student individually. Looking ahead, since AI is experiencing a constant boom, software developers may come up with automated ways to grade long essay-type assignments as well soon. AI is therefore all set to automate the long admission process for institutions, thereby expediting the necessary processing and classification of paperwork.
4. Personalized Smart Tutoring
Do you remember a time when students had to wait long hours to take personalized teachers’ guidance during their office hours or had to wait for their emails which they hardly replied to? AI has largely solved this problem. AI has rolled out a smart tutoring system that makes use of individual student data and caters to their specific problems and gives feedback related to a course. One such practical implementation of this technology is Carnegie Learning. However, this AI tool is still in its nascent phase. Soon, it will be fully equipped with more advanced features that will fulfill the educational requirements of students just like a human professor but in a more efficient way.
Artificial intelligence has a lot to offer with its compelling progress to revolutionize the education system around the globe. This technology has enabled institutions to develop a whole personalized learning experience that caters to the individual needs of every student. With the inclusion of smart content and personalized smart tutoring, AI is catering to individual students’ educational requirements and giving personalized feedback on their progress. Lastly, AI has provided opportunities for accelerating the administrative tasks by automating the admission process and grading system – all of which will help save billions of dollars for education institutes.
