learning, e-learning are some kind of things some of those technologies. Which are helping education sector to adopt
technology in a rapid way. Come 2020 there are going to be a lot of avenues,
new techniques which are going to be which are going to disrupt education sector because
of Technology adoption. So today i am going to explain about 10 technology
adoptions which are going to disrupt higher education. In 2020 so stay tuned. digital spending on education is projected
to increase up to 350 billion US Dollars by 2025. Lot of new adoption for student management
system or Enterprise management system or online admission process or student relationship
Management Systems, Like CRM are getting adopted across education sector in an accelerated
manner. Thre is preference for technology which can
be integrated with the stand-alone applications or overall existing applications. So if you are building new education technology-oriented
applications, you need to ensure that it is easily integrated with other applications
like mobile applications of existing applications associated with higher education Institutions. Important aspect about education technology
adoption is video-based learning. So there are a lot of smartphones, usage is
happening all over the world. So student community is very actively involved
in the usage of smartphone. And because of usage of smartphone video consumption
has already increased So according to cisco As per the latest statistics more than 80%
of the internet traffic is likely to be consumed with videos.More number of students
or more number of users are watching online videos. So it has given rise to various tools and Technologies related to online learning as
well as eLearning. So as a higher education institution, if you
are planning to adopt technology, then video based learning has to be on your priority
list. Threre are number of tools and techniques which
are available which are making video-based learning content making very cost-effective
or cheap. so if you want to define a video content,
then you just need to have any kind of average or above-average smartphone and some kind
of microphone to get started with video-based. And if you would like to edit some of those
content, then there are a lot of free as well as cost-effective tools are available in the
market using that you can easily define video-based content. Major advantage associated with video-based
content is reusability. Imagine if any kind of visiting faculty or
visiting Professor is coming to your educational institution and is conducting lectures related
to niche topics. And if you would like to share that lecture
or share that content with any other batch, then it is recommended to have that lectures
recorded and those can be available for those student where they can access it at any point. So video-based learning will also encourage
students to have the revision quickly where they can easily watch those videos again and
again to get their concepts clarified. As a higher education institution you can
build your portfolio learning based videos and those can be made available to the existing
students or you can run those videos as an online learning tool Where any distance-based student who are located
at any other location can easily learn those topics by watching those videos. so video-based learning has to be on your
priority list coming in the year 2020. Important point related to adoption of technology
in case of higher education would be Blockchain related technology. as you are aware blockchain technology is
a base or framework associated with very popular cryptocurrency. So cryptocurrency has increased its popularity
all across the world there are many countries, which are coming up with their own framework
associated with cryptocurrency and all the framework associated with cryptocurrency is
nothing but blockchain. So blockchain has a lot of very useful use cases in higher education segment as well. So imagine current problems associated with
student marksheet where student need to be provided original Marksheet by the university
and when Student need to take admission for their higher education or PhD admission those
student need to submit those original copies or photo copies of those market with the other
universities, but using a blockchain technology it is possible to authenticate those marksheets
where any university who want to authenticate Particular marksheet or particular academic
record associated with the student can easily communicate with the other university using
blockchain technology, where blockchain will help to authenticate validity associated with
the marksheet or academic record of the students. And there are other cases where the students
need to submit their academic records with the organization associated with placement
or if they want to apply for the internship or job with any other organization, then there
is a major headache associated with that organisation where they need to verify whether the marksheet
submitted by those students is valid or not, or if any kind of alteration has been made
by those students. So using blockchain technology, those Organization
can easily communicate with those University and University can easily authenticate whether
that marksheet is valid or not. So, there are a lot of innovative use cases
which are going to drive higher education adoption for the blockchain technology and
that is definitely going to help simplification associated with
academic record management or academic record exchange or student academic record collaboration
with other universities or with the organization. So the entire validation process or the verification
mechanism associated with the student mark sheet or even employee academic record can
be simplified with the help of blockchain technology. Examination management is one of the key areas
associated with education Institution. The success associated with any academic or
education institution depends on the successful examination implementation or conduction
of the examination process. Technology can certainly help automate that
examination process. There are a lot of new avenues or new technologies
like Artifical intelligence coming up, and that is also helping to conduct online exams
in a simplified manner. You can conduct online exams with technology-based
invigilation approach where the traditional physical examination invigilation can be easily
replaced by the technology-driven proctoring mechanism, where any student can appear for
the online exam, sitting at any location and Technology will be able to keep track of those
students whether they are using any kind of malpractices or if any kind of cheating happening
during online examination process. Technology can also help you to define the
question paper associated with the online exam along with the secure delivery associated
with the question papers can also be managed with the help of technology. There are a lot of education institutes which
have started conducting online exams using technology and that is definitely going to
drive or it is going to enhance in the coming year 2020. Another key aspect related to adoption of
technology in case of higher education would be, self-paced learning or learning-based
from the individual preferences of the students. So imagine if you are a teacher and you are
teaching a batch of 60 students, so each and every individual student is going to have
his or her own preference associated with learning speed or adaptivity or understanding
a particular complex concept. Some of the students might be able to understand
easily, but some might take more time for understanding various Concepts. So self-paced learning or personalized learning
is one of the key trends that is going to drive technology adoption in 2020. So, if we consider video-based learning, So
in that case, if students are watching say particular 60 Minutes of video and after watching
60 Minutes of video, students are appearing for the online exam associated with learning
related to that video content, and based on the analysis of the content exam result system
can easy to predict capability of individual student related to adaptability or related
to understanding various concepts which are being taught in that video, and based on that
understanding, system can run the particular algorithm, and it can recommend the learning
path for that particular student. So, imagine if a particular student is weak
in any particular area, and that student requires more revision or more study is required for
the particular topic, then system using artificial intelligence algorithm can easily provide
learning path for their students where system can predict the study associated with this
topic, after completion of the x topic, so this self-paced learning or self mode of learning
mechanisms can definitely help each and every individual student to enhance their knowledge
and Technology can play a key role in enhancing those knowledge associated with the students. Virtual reality is another technology that
is also driving technology adoption for higher education. So all those tools and techniques related
to using virtual reality in order to prepare education-based content is definitely becoming
cost-effective and in the coming year 2020, all those tools and technologies or software
are definitely going to become cost-effective and that is definitely going to drive more
virtual reality-based content. So, imagine if you are a medical student,
and you would like to understand the mechanism associated with the human body, so using virtual
reality, you can prepare such innovative videos, where you can directly show the students entire
aspects associated with the human body in a 3D format. So in this mechanism, students can buy the
eyeglasses which are specifically designed related to virtual reality and using those
eyeglasses, students will be able to understand the human body and all the concepts associated
with the medical field. Learning is going to become very easy with
the help of virtual reality. So image a student is studying geography or
any particular location, then using virtual reality, you can prepare a video-based content
or 3D content and using those specially designed eyeglasses, students can see the places or
locations virtually, in front of their screen. They will be able to understand more, with
the help of virtual reality. There is a concept like if you are reading
a particular, you are able to understand 10% of the things, or you can remember 10% of
the things and if you are listening to a particular thing, you may remember 20% of the things
or concepts which are being taught. With the help of videos, you can learn more
like say, you can remember say 50% of things with the help of technology-related videos,
but with the help of virtual reality, you will be able to experience those things in
front of you. So chances will be like you would be able
to remember those percent More than 70% of those things. So, imagine the kind of queries you get during
the admission season. So during admission season, anxiety associated
with the students or parents is very high and there are types of activities which need
to be completed by the students. So, a higher education institution can definitely
adopt innovative technology like Chatbot. So, chatbot is artifical intelligence or AI-driven
mechanism to have a live chat on your website. So, chatbots can easily handle the various
commonly asked questions or frequently asked questions by the students as well as parents
during admission cycle. So imagine if a student is visiting your website
and the student gets stuck while filling the online application form, in the traditional
way, the student needs to either send an email to the education institution or they need
to do the phone call to understand or to resolve their query. Where using the chatbot mechanisms, students
can directly enter their query in the live chat and using frequently Asked question database
in the backend, the chatbot can easily analyze the query entered by the students or parents
and it can resolve or respond to that query instantly. So chatbot is a virtual assistant that will
be available on a 24/7 basis on your website and it can definitely handle a lot of queries
associated with the students. So, there are a lot of use case associated
with the chatbot in case of Education sector you can use chatbot in order to resolve the
queries of the student during the admission cycle or if anybody has query related to say
a scholarship that can also be managed by the chatbot. Even if you’re running a particular educational
event, and students have certain queries, you can easily configure live chat chatbot,
and those can be can easily respond to the students. So using live chat mechanism powered with
the chatbot techology, you can easily resolve your number of telephone calls or overall
email inquiries that you usually receive and it can definitely help save the cost associated
with query management system. The podcast is something that is really taking
off since the last couple of years time. The number of users or number of students
who are preferring to listen to the podcast over various mobile apps is increasing day
by day. The podcast industry overall is taking off
and there are a lot of new avenues or new opportunities as far as podcast is concerned. Higher education or overall education sector
can definitely adopt podcast. Podcast provides advantage where any kind
of learning can happen over voice. So imagine if you are a driving your car or
if you’re driving your vehicle or even if you’re walking around your home or if you
are coming to and fro from your college or to your school then you can listen to those
innovative educational podcast. There are a lot of universities who are running
their own free as well as paid podcast channels. So, if you are a student, if you would like
to understand some of the key concepts like artificial intelligence or programming language,
or if you would like to learn any foreign language like to learn English, how to speak
English or how to write English, then there are a lot of useful education podcasts available. The major advantage associated with podcast
is anytime learning. So, as a student, you can learn it at any
given point of time you just need to have your smartphone with the podcast application
installed and there are major applications and which are virtually free; and you can
easily listen to those podcasts in order to improve your knowledge.As a higher education
institution, you can easily record the lectures which are happening at your education institute.You
can easily convert those lectures in the form of Podcast and you can run the specific Channel
which will be exclusively available for your students. Students can easily subscribe to those podcasts,
they can easily listen to the lectures which were happened at your highest education institution
or college. So if students want to understand complex
concepts which have been taught at the college or at particular lecture or seminar and if
you are able to convert that lecture or seminar in the form of podcasts, then students can
easily subscribe to it and they can listen to it in order to clarify concepts or in order
to revise their knowledge associated with education. As a higher education institution, you can
make available those podcasts to your paid subscribers. So imagine if you are running an Executive
MBA classes or distance education related classes, and if you’d like to share those
podcasts with those subscribers, then you can easily launch your own channel associated
with the podcast. So Podcasting is a technology that is definitely
going to help higher education institutions and come in 2020, you will see more and more
adoption of podcasting in case of Education sector. Technology adoption for higher education is
definitely going to increase in the upcoming year. There are a lot of new avenues available and
any higher education institution, which want to build their brand or they want to beat
the competition and if they want to climb higher in their ranking associated with education
courses, then technology adoption is a must. So, those higher education which are going
to adopt technology are definitely going to be a leader in their own segments and learning
process associated with the students is also going to get simplified with the help of technology. Technology can help you to simplify various
things like examination management, admission management.or even student query resolution
process. You can enhance the learning process associated
with the students and the overall job associated with those teachers or professors can also
be simplified with the help of technology. So, are you ready to adopt technology in the
