The education space has transformed in the last few years. Research says that to make learning more interactive and customizable to each student the concept of ‘One size fits all’ has faded and evolved into ‘Real luxury is customization. Earlier, online classes were taken as a supplement to 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The blackboard teaching has been replaced by power-points presentations, PDFs, online exams, etc.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 system is 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’s 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’s needs.  Virtual tutoring tools can be developed to make the learning interactive while assessing 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 for achieving a milestone, completing an assignment, or playing an educational game. A 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 on the learning outcomes of students. 

After the pandemic, there is never an assurance that schools and institutions will get back to the complete offline mode of learning and instruction, the blended model – where both offline and online modes of learning coexist is going to stay with us forever now.

A few years ago, the thing that was barely used by any educational institution and school has become a big part of every student’s life today. Since 2020, most universities and schools across the world have been switching between online and offline learning for safety reasons.

The concept of traditional education has changed radically. Being physically present in a classroom isn’t the only learning option anymore — not with the rise of the internet and new technologies, at least. Nowadays, students and teachers have access to a quality education whenever and wherever they want, as long as they can get online. We are now entering a new era — the revolution of online education. 

There’s no need to discount the doubt surrounding education through the internet. It’s hard to understand the notion of leaving behind the conventional classroom, especially if it’s to face this vast space called The Internet. But again, online education and online classes are a sensible choice whether for a teenager or an adult. As a student, this can be a useful learning method for sharpening your skills in a difficult subject or learning a new skill.

Schools and teachers should assess their unique situation and decide according to their needs and goals, and use online classes and learning as a mode to add to the traditional mode of learning. The students and teachers of secondary classes can benefit the maximum from the online classes for 8th graders, 9th graders, and so on.
