The education industry has recently undergone a complete modification in the past few years. The once dormant and quiet sector has had to rethink its entire operating model during the coronavirus initiated lockdown and has also seen new policy changes, with the Central Government’s New Education Policy brought into effect last July. The education sector has been ripe for disruption for a while, and educational technology companies are leading the charge to revamp the way students engage with content.
The e-learning trends dominating the education industry
Personalized and student-centric learning
Student-centric learning focuses on the requirements of scholars to some extent in time and progression, instead of one size fits all transfer of data from the teacher to the category. Student-centric methodology offers a singular way during which educators teach and have interaction with their students because it meets the requirements of a various range of learners.
Different learning styles are catered for because the teaching isn’t achieved with a hard and fast approach. Rather, the teacher assesses where students are at, through pre-testing and questioning, then adjusts their delivery methods accordingly.
Student-centric learning is distinctive therein it is often delivered through a mixture of face-to-face and online study and encompasses digital media and applications like live video conferencing, surveys, forums, polls, quizzes, and online submissions for assessment. These are often presented via a mixture of synchronous and asynchronous experiences depending upon the teacher’s understanding of students’ learning preferences.
Otherwise known as ‘chunking’, microlearning embraces and enhances the idea of breaking big things into smaller, bite-sized chunks. This enables students to grasp a concept bit-by-bit, to review with ease, and to follow a self-paced process.
AI (Artificial Intelligence)
Artificial intelligence (AI) is often viewed as a complex next-level area of digital technology where computers are programmed to mimic or copy sophisticated human behavior, however in the context of education— with thinking, learning, and problem-solving—AI can perform many repetitive, manual tasks in order to free up teachers’ precious time. AI-based learning can also make the concepts easy to understand. This is what we adopt at Speedlabs. in
Learning anywhere and anytime
Researching and learning anywhere, anytime has become a necessity, and has certainly been a requirement during the recent health crisis and subsequent remote learning periods. The ability of an educational platform to adapt the user experience to suit desktop computers, laptops, tablets, and mobile phones is crucial in order to fulfill the needs of both teachers and students. You can learn anywhere, anytime using the SpeedLabs platform.
