Digital Education has been in talks for a few decades. While a few organizations and educational institutes have adopted it, few still remain incumbent about investing in something as fascinating as digitization to run their business processes.
What if I tell you that the traditional methods of running business processes in the education sector will no longer be in traction, at least in the future?
Saying this not only means that companies are becoming aware of the rising use of digital business practices but are also sure about the rising adoption of digital transformation across several sectors with the aftermath of digitization reeling in and hence, the education sector is no exception.
Research suggests that the market value f Ed-Tech, too, is on the surge with the remote work from a home model and remote delivery of Education coming up in prevalence, allowing companies to realize the benefits of what digital tools and technologies bring to the table.
Education is one such sector that is human-centric, which provides educational institutes with streamlined processes of delivering Education to a broad spectrum of educational institutes with its digitally driven technologies.
The future of Ed-Tech looks more promising, with emerging technologies such as AI, ML, IoT, and Blockchain delivering Education in the most efficient ways.
Of late, AR, VR, and metaverse have shown a bright future in the education industry, where the ease of accessing Education with the reality of the virtual world is setting benchmarks for an all-new digital experience for users.
Ed-tech leverages several emerging technologies and delivers Education in ways no one envisaged a few decades ago. Let’s look at some emerging technologies that are important in the present format and hold massive potential in the future.
AR is replacing tangible assets of Education such as textbooks and printed brochures, helping educational institutes cut down the cost of learning materials. Augmented Reality lets students leverage the physical environment in a virtual format and access the study material from anywhere.
Augmented Reality provides an all-new visual experience for students from remote locations without them being present at the institution in physical form.
This lets students gain knowledge through compelling visuals and immersive content.
The speech technology provides students comprehensive details in a voice format that keeps them engaged. It delivers a physical form using a digital footprint through AR.
Digital collaboration with AR allows students to reap the benefits of Education from remote places. In the remote working environment, it becomes tough for students to access schools and educational institutes, and hence, AR makes learning interesting in effortless ways by improving collaboration and capabilities and providing the students with the opportunities to implement hands-on learning approaches to enhance the learning experience and help students practice new skills.
AR has many end-use applications in Education that have made it engaging, enriching, and enabling students to understand a particular topic in depth.
For instance, Star Chart is a notable example of AR in Education that lets students understand astronomy with fun.
The app highlights the constellation on the screen, with students pointing their devices at the sky and it provides a detailed description of the constellation, including information about over 12,000 stars and 88 constellations.
Another breath-taking example of an AR application in Education includes the usage of the Jig Space app, a useful AR tool for both Education as well as business fields that helps users create a project demo in a short time by uploading 3D models and adjusting them according to users’ needs before presenting them to the audience.
AR has shown enormous application in Education, and educational institutes are taking them up rigorously to implement on a larger scale.
Creating a virtual reality that negates the need to have a physical presence at educational institutes lets students learn valuable skills and prepare them for the future by delivering an all-new digital experience with massive, unearthed potential in the upcoming days.
The world has changed, and so have the ways of doing business. Since the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen an unprecedented shift in how organizations carry out their business processes.
It’s a world of emerging technologies, and organizations across industries are adopting them quickly. Supply chain operations, too, hold a significant share among organizations and businesses utilizing such technologies for their operations.
The times have changed, organizations have transformed their ways of doing business, and companies are shifting to an all-new digitized way of doing business.
