1. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

  • Following the report published by eLearning Industry, 47% of learning tools will be combined with artificial intelligence

  • It helps develop and deliver content, lectures, teaching aids, mitigate and maintain communications

  • Through the LMS, tutors can keep an eye on their service’s roster, grades, and review dates, creating a chance for parents to get involved in their child’s learning.

3. AUGMENTED REALITY

This technology-driven information is added to the existing environment while virtual reality creates a whole new environment.

4. GAMING

Gamification is a new technological quirk where educational games are simulated to engage your visuals to learn using coding.

  • His motto is: students learn best when they are having fun.

  • It binds the students with gadgets like grading, competition, team activity which allow the students to soak up the latest information.

5. BLOCKCHAIN ​​TECHNOLOGY

  • It helps students by eliminating the need for a mediator, as it makes record keeping digital by connecting it directly to learners

  • This increases transparency; like a student, while using the blockchain uploads an assignment, the technology ensures that it is not lost.
