  • Automated learning depends on user interaction with online educational programs.


Institutions like schools and colleges are known to impart education. In the present era, computer technology has advanced immensely. Software developers have created dynamic cyberspace that is highly useful for revolutionizing the learning model. In simple words, computer technology has led to the development of machine learning models, and to its subsets, such as reinforcement learning and deep learning. Automated learning depends on user interaction with online educational programs. Educational software is designed to promote the process of learning among students.


With technology advancing at a tremendous rate, there is an apparent inclination among individuals towards virtual learning as compared to real-world teaching/learning methods.

Machine learning has paved the way for engaging individuals in virtual courses. Artificial intelligence has simplified the process of studying to a great extent. The prime reasons for AI integration with education are delineated through the following points student-centric learning program: In a classroom, students are given lessons that test their learning ability. However, generic lessons don’t consider the individual capacities of students. A specific lesson can be learned by one student very easily, while another student can face difficulty in understanding that lesson. Understandably, each student needs to learn at an individual pace.

“The use of AI helps in successfully resolving such problems. AI-software developers have created online courses that allow students to submit assignments. The assignments are course-specific. ”


Software programs get developed to assess and aid students so that they can learn new topics at a suitable pace. AI software is designed to ensure that individual students are given more opportunities to re-read and learn lessons through repetition. Personalized programs are adaptive and hence, don’t overburden students with new information until the present lesson is adequately learned and assimilated. Teachers are known to personally tend to students who have difficulty in grasping new concepts. Personal tutoring, coupled with the appropriately paced automated learning program, help students to understand concepts without any difficulty properly.


Human errors can lead to gaps in learning. Teachers giving lectures on specific topics can miss important places that create gaps. It often leads to confusion among students. It is essential to address the gaps in understanding quickly, but such gaps can remain undetected for a long time. The use of AI helps in successfully resolving such problems. AI-software developers have created online courses that allow students to submit assignments. The assignments are course-specific. The common errors that are made by students for the same assignments get automatically notified to the course instructor, and the mistakes are saved as alerts for future students. Grading is an integral part of teaching; all teachers have to correct and grade essays of students. Manual correction of written assignments takes much time.
