With the inclusion of “Quality Education” as one of the key sustainable development goals of UN, the emphasis is strongly on adult education and technological and pedagogical changes in teaching and learning.
How is technology revolutionising E-learning? Video-based learning, microlearning, and AI-driven chatbots are now functioning as teachers’ assistants.
2019 is the year of video – based learning. It is the most scalable and democratic as an education medium. It is affordable, accessible and leads to higher retention levels.
Psychology Today states – ‘The human brain processes videos 60,000 times faster than text.’
This is leading to ‘MicroLearning’. This is a concept where bite-sized videos with succinct information are shown to learners. When learners are exposed to information in short bursts repeatedly, they grasp concepts quicker, leading to amazing learning outcomes. Microlearning, also uses= short quizzes, infographics or audio clips to engage the learners. Online chatbots help the students with FAQ’s.
