Better Engagement Through eLearning Automation

| October 17, 2018

Students like to be in control of their learning. They want to choose what’s interesting and relevant, and to receive support when they need it and independence when they don’t. More importantly, students perform better in situations that consider their learning styles, preferences, and areas of interest.As the focus on personalizing learning increases, more opportunities have become available for personalization with technology. Learning Management Systems are increasingly offering support for concepts like personal learning paths, and even integrations with third-party systems through tools like Zapier, or even marketing automation tools like Infusionsoft.Automation is still an emerging concept in eLearning, but you probably already use it to some degree in your existing programs. A simple example is automatically grading quizzes and tests as users complete them. By automating this process, it reduces admin time spent grading and providing feedback, it means learners have immediate feedback, and frankly, this kind of automation is what users expect. Some systems might even automate processes like congratulating users for completing courses or notifying instructors that an assignment was submitted, but it’s with more complex automation workflows that things start to get interesting.

How Blockchain Could Impact Education in 2020 and Beyond

Blockchain. A few years ago, the word was known only to a very select few. Nowadays, most people have heard of blockchains, even though they might just know it as ‘that thing that makes bitcoin work.’ While cryptocurrencies are the first widespread application of blockchain technology, this is far from the only use for it. Being secure, decentralized ledgers, blockchains can be applied in many fields including healthcare and education.

Ani's Math Story

Article | May 27, 2020

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with math, leaning heavily towards the latter. It was always something I was good at, but didn’t enjoy. Quite frankly, it still stuns me on a regular basis that I’ve ended up working for a math company. Let me try to parse this out by saying that math has been intrinsically tied to every definitive choice I’ve made, consciously or unconsciously. Flash backwards—I’m 4. My mom is teaching me long division, insisting that this is absolutely crucial for how I map the rest of my life. I assume this is how the rest of my peers spend their time, completely oblivious to the fact that other neighborhood children are outside, running around on playgrounds, doing cartwheels up and down their sunlit front yards. Instead, I’m grinding away. I think I remember this as fun. I think I ask my mom to give me another multiplication problem.

Virtual Reality brings a whole new immersive learning experience to the classroom

Article | March 20, 2020

Virtual reality (VR) is making its way into the classrooms of local public schools allowing students to immerse themselves in lessons that traditionally would have been taught out of a textbook. For instance, seventh graders at Daniel Morgan Middle School recently learned through VR about the various weapons and techniques used in combat during World War I. All it took was a pair of goggles, a smart phone and a hand controller to get students engaged in the lesson through a computer-generated three-dimensional (3D) world. Daniel Morgan recently created a technology lab to make VR learning possible for its students.

Virtual Reality Advances Bring New Possibilities to Higher Education

What if virtual reality is more than a novelty or even a tool? What if it’s a technology with the potential to change, well, everything? When Emory Craig and Maya Georgieva, both experienced educators, first encountered modern VR at the Tribeca Film Festival several years ago, the experience was so revolutionary that it altered the course of their professional lives. The pair went on to establish Digital Bodies, an organization dedicated to researching and consulting on the transformative power of VR, augmented reality and artificial intelligence — collectively referred to as extended reality, or XR — in education and society.
