AI revolutionizes e-learning platforms: What the future of online education looks like

In recent years, training platforms have become increasingly popular. E-learning is extensively used not only in the education sector but also in businesses and organizations.

The integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is set to revolutionize the technology of e-learning, making it possible to provide a more personalized and efficient user experience.

Platform developers will be able to achieve better results much faster and at a lower cost, resulting in significant benefits.


But what is the Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a technology that uses algorithms and neural networks to analyze and process information. This gives it the ability to think, learn, and create, allowing it to perform tasks that traditionally require human intelligence.

The ultimate goal of AI developers is to create intelligent machines that can perform natural language processing, problem solving, decision making and learning.

Today, AI is used in various fields, such as medicine, finance, education, and industry. AI powers suggested movies on Netflix, recommended videos on YouTube, and provides personalized recommendations through machine learning algorithms. AI is also present in voice assistants, chatbots, data analytics systems, autonomous vehicles, and integrated development environment tools like GitHub Copilot that automatically complete code.


Chat-GPT potential in e-learning

Chat-GPT continues to evoke diverse emotions. While some appreciate its ability to improve efficiency, others fear the loss of their jobs. However, regardless of opinions, artificial intelligence and chat-GPT are constantly evolving, presenting new possibilities for e-learning technology.

Josh Bersin, in a blog post, analyzed Chat-GPT and its potential impact on e-learning technology. It is certainly worth presenting a fragment of this analysis here: "Let me just say up front, I see enormous possibilities here. And as with all new technologies, we cannot fully predict the impact quite yet. There will be problems and failures, but the ultimate story is “hooray.”

To maximize this potential, research is already being conducted into using AI chat:

  • Onboarding,
  • Product training,
  • Compliance training.

Experts predict that AI tools will revolutionize human resource development strategies and e-learning platforms.

For instance, McDonald's launched an AI-based talent hiring platform called McHire in 2019. In the UK and Ireland, 1,450 restaurants reported a 65% reduction in hiring time, translating to savings of three to five hours per recruiter per week.

Such data may not convince everyone of the benefits of introducing AI solutions to platforms to make business easier, but it will certainly sow the seeds of interest in a topic that really deserves attention. Implementing Azure OpenAI (ChatGPT) in an e-learning platform has many benefits, including:

  • Creating course outlines,
  • Advanced course content generation functionality,
  • Creating descriptions for individual sections,
  • Applying appropriate tags to find content of interest,
  • Delivering personalized courses.

The use of AI in training platforms is an innovative tool that has the potential to revolutionize the entire field of online education in the future. Therefore, it is worth considering the solutions proposed by artificial intelligence and implementing its capabilities into your projects. Josh Bersin, mentioned earlier in this article, summed it up this way: "Onward and upward: let's think of this as one of the brightest stars in our future and try to keep it from getting out of control."

Creating content using artificial intelligence

Creating course content can be a time-consuming process, taking anywhere from a few dozen to several hours. The exact time required depends on the subject matter and questions involved.

However, with the implementation of ChatGPT in e-learning platforms, it is possible to instantly generate all the content you need to create thoughtful, clear, and effective training.

This solution not only saves time, but also adds an element of inspiration that can enrich the training by generating components that may not have been considered by the course creator.

Artificial intelligence can also streamline the process of creating and delivering personalized e-learning tests, improving learning effectiveness and making the platform more enjoyable for students. These include:

  • Quizzes
  • Quiz Questions
  • Hints.

Benefits of implementing AI in e-learning

One of the huge and invaluable benefits of the implementation of AI in e-learning is the ability to generate content. There are also a number of other benefits that can impact the use of the training platform. These are:

  • Personalized learning - By analyzing data about learning styles, interests and progress, AI can be used to personalize learning experiences,
     
  • AI-powered grading - Artificial intelligence provides feedback on quizzes and assignments, and automatic grading helps evaluate the learning process,
     
  • Identification of user training problems - Thanks to the continuous process of data analysis, AI is able to identify a specific user's knowledge gaps and, therefore, provide immediate intervention - resulting in the closing of the training gap and higher training effectiveness,
     
  • Increased efficiency - AI can automate time-consuming and repetitive tasks, such as test scoring,
     
  • AI assistants - AI-based chatbots can act as virtual teachers, thanks to their ability to analyze vast amounts of data. They are a kind of guidepost along the educational path, able to provide immediate help and feedback,
     
  • Engaging Experience - Providing recipients with interactive learning experiences based on virtual reality can lead to greater engagement and more effective learning.

Also worthy of mention is the use of AI in the creation of graphics and video material. This is another way to save not only time but also money - which should be spent on expensive sessions and the work of models and graphic designers. In this area, the following are used:

  • Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) to create new, unique images and graphics. This method enables the creation of graphic materials suitable for the training course's needs and concepts.
     
  • AI video generation platforms for quick production of high-quality video. Video content creation is based on the text entered by the user. With this solution, we can create really valuable and informative videos with just a few clicks.

In the hands of creative, knowledgeable and out-of-the-box thinkers, such solutions can take the e-learning platform and its training to the highest level.


Conclusions

The field of AI technology is constantly developing, and it will inevitably impact e-learning. These solutions will undoubtedly affect the functionality of training platforms, as well as the effectiveness and engagement of the learners involved in the educational process.

In the future, we might see personalized education processes through augmented virtual reality. It is important to remember that humans remain responsible for using artificial intelligence.

It is up to us to decide whether it becomes our ally or our enemy. While AI enthusiasts may not require encouragement to utilize its solutions, those who are hostile to artificial intelligence may be convinced by Mario Puzo's statement: "Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer."

Regardless of our level of involvement in AI development, whether we are fascinated by its possibilities or avoid them, it is certain that AI will become even more ubiquitous in our daily lives. Therefore, it is worth staying up-to-date with its developments, as those who do not grow remain stagnant.
