Internet and burgeoning AI technology have made e-learning more accessible than ever before. E-learning offers solutions to some of the most pressing challenges in our education system and has the potential to provide quality teaching to all the students in many ways.
1) E-learning can more meaningfully differentiate curriculum
Learning and processing ability of every individual is different. But our traditional classroom model is constrained to deal with every individual in the same constant model with limited resources. E-learning equipped with intelligence, can recognize students’ understanding of a concept, and suggest different paths of learning depending on the current level of mastery.
This will enable different students to master content at their own pace and will ensure that all students in a given class or community are successful.
2) AI can encourage individual tutoring
E-learning enables students to learn at their own pace and e-learning equipped with artificial intelligence can act as a virtual tutor and clear student queries about concepts.
AI can also enable tutors to understand frequently asked questions across forums and provide easier clarification to all students.
3) E-learning clarifies points of confusion privately
Another problem that plagues traditional classrooms is that students are often embarrassed to ask questions.
E-learning technology takes this into account. E-learning courses allow students to ask questions privately or in a forum of students engaging with the content at a similar pace or level. This allows students to focus on learning unburdened by self-consciousness.
4) E-learning cuts costs for students and eases the burden on teachers
The cost of attaining quality education at a recognized institution with certified facilitators is high in the current scenario. The costs entailed in giving students access to e-learning environments and resources, however, are much less burdensome.
Adopting e-learning technologies more at scale would enable schools to cut costs associated with faculty benefits, classroom upkeep, and administrative burdens. This would cut costs for students, too.

5) E-learning ensures students engage with material that’s always relevant
In more traditional schools and classrooms, teachers are forced to follow a fairly strict and inflexible curriculum and it is practically tough to collect feedback and update subject content regularly.
With e-learning tools and AI, however, teachers can adapt and adjust the content in real time. This allows teachers to meet students’ needs and ensure the content more accurately reflects the world their students live in. They can infuse their lessons with the most innovative and up-to-date information.

However those of us working to improve this space need to work harder to ensure to reach and ultimately benefit a higher percentage of students.
With the advancements of AI learning models, the future learning system can and will be able to create an interactive environment for each student and ensures a better learning experience.
Nevertheless, the benefits of e-learning –– including the customization of content to pique students’ interests and the cultivation of more actionable data for teachers –– far outweigh the challenges, and possess the potential to drastically improve student outcomes across the world.
His concepts challenge the notion of common education systems and bring in a scope of innovation over the existing methodologies. We hope to see more students come into the AI path soon and make it the new way of living.
