Ramsey, who led the AI and machine learning solutions team for Google Cloud, specializes in AI-augmented education. He said that AI and its subsets, such as machine learning and deep learning, can address current challenges in education such as student retainment and teacher shortages. But the five-year outlook for AI will only be slightly different from what it is today, Ramsey said. “The capabilities will already exceed what the industry is using them for,” he said. “In other words, the technologies are way ahead of the applications, and it’ll take a while for the applications to catch up, because people don’t change overnight.”

What makes online education as effective as traditional learning?

Article | March 12, 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.

Flipped classrooms have been here for a while and a considerable amount of research shows that this pedagogical method can be used for a wide range of subjects (from biology to computer science), with K12 and university students. An LMS can make a smooth transition towards the flipped classroom model and will empower students to form their own ideas and methods of language learning. It can successfully turn a language class into a personal learning experience.

What the Shift to Virtual Learning Could Mean for the Future of Higher Ed

Article | March 31, 2020

Tectonic shifts in society and business occur when unexpected events force widespread experimentation around a new idea. During World War II, for instance, when American men went off to war, women proved that they could do “men’s” work — and do it well. Women never looked back after that. Similarly, the Y2K problem demanded the extensive use of Indian software engineers, leading to the tripling of employment-based visas granted by the U.S. Fixing that bug enabled Indian engineers to establish their credentials, and catapulted them as world leaders in addressing technology problems. Alphabet, Microsoft, IBM, and Adobe are all headed by India-born engineers today.
