Some of us may have heard about Artificial Intelligence. This is a branch of computer science associated with the building of smart machines that can perform tasks that otherwise require human intelligence. AI endeavors to simulate human intelligence in machines so that they are able to think, perceive, learn, problem solve and even take decisions. Computer systems powered by deep learning and machine learning are able to carry out such tasks. This is achieved by bringing together thinking, perception and action using mathematical algorithms. In AI, each and every decision is now driven by data, where machine learning predicts human behavior based on accumulated data.

In fact, an uneven global response on whether or not school should be closed is also troubling.

Unleash Your Creativity For Inspired eLearning

Article | March 31, 2020

Are you inspired? Does your work reflect the level of creativity that you are capable of? Are you limited by factors out of your control? The struggle is real for Instructional Designers, as they must balance their creative desires and well-defined guidelines. These guidelines are well in effect for both academic and corporate organizations. These guidelines oftentimes tend to stifle creativity.
