Here are 4 top eLearning trends for 2019 you should look for along with some advice from the experts.Two buzzwords, in technology in general, and eLearning in particular, that have captured our imagination are AR and VR. Augmented and Virtual Realities immerse the learner in a more tangible, realistic learning experience that drives their engagement.However, eLearning experts are making different predictions about these technologies. Though VR is more immersive, it will still give way to AR.Imagine you’re training housing inspectors for disaster assessments. With AR technology, it’s possible to create scenarios that closely resemble real-life situations. For example, you can take a real house and simulate the effects of a flood on it. The inspector visits the house and learns to assess the damage. Then, you can use the same house and change the flood to a fire or a roof collapse. It works like a charm. To undergo this training, learners only need their smartphones.

International Students Face Challenges Studying Abroad Amid COVID-19

Article | August 24, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic is presenting unique challenges for colleges and universities, and finding ways for international students to return to school amid travel bans or other pandemic-related restrictions will be one of the most complex. Many international students finished the previous semester via remote connection after colleges and universities encouraged students to return home in March, but doing so hasn’t been simple. Students living in alternate time zones from their professors are forced to stay awake all night to complete online seminars, and some are contending with a poor internet connection as well as social isolation. There will be additional challenges for students abroad who hope to return to school in the fall, from travel restrictions to securing visas with closed consulate offices.

Many look to AI-powered tools to address the need to scale high-quality education and with good reason. A surge in educational content from online courses, expanded access to digital devices, and the contemporary renaissance in AI seem to provide the pieces necessary to deliver personalized learning at scale. However, technology has a poor track record for solving social issues without creating unintended harm. What negative effects can we predict, and how can we refine the objectives of AI researchers to account for such unintended consequences?

What makes online education as effective as traditional learning?

Article | August 24, 2020

There’s a large demographic of people who struggle during their traditional learning because of the commitments they have in their day to day lives. This often includes single parents, or those who are looking to further their education later in life. Many traditional learning places like colleges will help parents work around their schedule, but online learning gives the learner autonomy over where and when they learn. For those who live in smaller communities that don’t have institutions dedicated to learning, e-learning may even be the only opportunity that they have.

Boston Dynamics’ Handle robot recreated with Raspberry Pi

Article | August 24, 2020

You in the community seemed so impressed with this recent Boston Dynamics–inspired build that we decided to feature another. This time, maker Harry was inspired by Boston Dynamics’ research robot Handle, which stands 6.5 ft tall, travels at 9 mph and jumps 4 feet vertically. Here’s how Harry made his miniature version, MABEL (Multi Axis Balancer Electronically Levelled). MABEL has individually articulated legs to enhance off-road stability, prevent it from tipping, and even make it jump (if you use some really fast servos). Harry is certain that anyone with a 3D printer and a “few bits” can build one.
