If learning design theory consists of a new effort to describe the foundational components of the educational process, it goes without saying that it needs conceptual and technical tools to describe who is involved in a learning activity. It's also important to include resources that are required for the operation, how the event is conducted and, finally, how a collection of activities is structured into a learning design. Two differentiating characteristics of working methodologies can be described as follows: Firstly, the description is presented in learning design in machine-readable formats so that software systems can run them. Secondly, the ability to store learning designs and, consequently, being able to share them, search for them, re-use them, adapt them, and so on.

Borderless Education With Unlimited VR Students: A Vision

Article | August 21, 2020

When designing education programs for adults, you cannot avoid the fact that you need to design experiences for them. What other education forms could be better than storytelling, gamification, task orientation, and instant rewards, which could be offered by VR gaming? Imagine if all existing flat-lecture videos were converted into a 3D interactive gaming environment. Let's say, for example, on Massive Open Online Courses platforms, such as Coursera and edX, they start offering VR classrooms. When you connect to the classroom, you would be able to see other students around you and chat with them in natural languages and hear them in the natural languages; as a plus, there could be a prompt translator to support cross-cultural communication.

Make Microlearning More Effective By Using Chatbots

Article | August 21, 2020

Owing to technology advancement, we can now create chatbots to consume nuggets of information in a question-and-answer format. A learner can ask a question and get a quick short answer at the point of need. These bots can be updated easily for frequently changing content and changes can be displayed to learners immediately. Contrary to popular belief, chatbots can do much more than answering standard or pre-set questions. One of the multiple types of chatbots, intelligent bots, uses Artificial Intelligence and machine learning to facilitate conversational learning.
