The education industry has undergone a great transformation in the last decade. A lot of research has been done to make learning more interactive and customizable to each student as the concept of ‘One size fits all’ has faded and evolved into ‘Real luxury is customization. Earlier, the online courses were taken as a supplement with classroom teaching, but the onset of the pandemic has forced each student to take up online classes as a whole. 

The blackboard teaching has been replaced by power-points presentations, PDFs, online exams, etc. But this has resulted in new problems, with the students not getting individual attention from the teachers. Many are opting to buy exclusive Learner Management System courses from third-party providers to have a better understanding of concepts and get their custom learning paths.

The third-party content developers are harnessing the potential of AI to design curriculum and learning paths for each student individually. Artificial Intelligence is leveraged on a granular level to identify the strengths and weaknesses of each student. The classroom learning management systems are designed such that, with the analysis of the baseline assessment of a student, the strengths can be presented in an attractive visual while encouraging the student to go ahead and complete the next lessons, while making it mandatory to complete the prerequisite courses to work on their weak areas.

Embedding AI into an LMS has revolutionized the way a student improves his learning outcome. The content is optimized as per the student needs as user data can be accessed by gathering information about the previously taught courses and the student’s performance. This enables the creators to break down difficult blocks. The content developed is highly intuitive and tailored to the student needs.  Virtual tutoring tools can be developed to make the learning interactive while assessing the student performance. 

Adaptive learning is developed to meet the levels of the student from a low grader to an intermediate student to a high-level performer. Chatbots are designed to help students ask their queries and get instant answers without time delay in waiting for assistance from a teacher. 

Gamification is another advancement that has proven to be a great success among students. It involves awarding points or credits to each student on achieving a milestone, completing an assignment, or playing an educational game. Reward system can be developed with gamification and the rewards can be redeemed to unlock a new course. Games are developed using Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality to engage the student in a real-time situation, enabling him or her to overcome challenges by applying the learned concepts.

So the advancements in AI when embedded into learning apps are creating a huge positive impact in the learning outcomes of students.

Educational technology can assist in the development of effective classroom management systems and skills that cultivate student learning. This chapter explores the uses of online technology classroom management tools and strategies that effectively support teachers in making the most of their instructional time through use of interactive, engaging, and positive behavioral-building learning methods. In addition, a list of online tools that can be used for classroom management is provided. This is followed by a personal narrative from a Special Education teacher who has used classroom management digital tools to enhance her students’ behavior, classroom instructions, and student performance.
