Top Five Edtech Trends in the Turn of the Decade

In recent years, education has evolved to incorporate more innovative technologies in the classroom. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated this digital transformation, as educators have been forced to think outside of the classroom-sized box to ensure continuity of education while quarantines keep students out of schools. With it, the growth of edtech innovation, as well as access to online courses and digital content has exploded. Institutions of every size and type are now experimenting with various ways to teach and learn on the internet.

As students’ exposure to technology-enabled learning rises, so will their expectations, as they seek more flexible alternatives to traditional on-campus learning models. Here are some of the online learning trends to look out for in 2021: 

1) Improving engagement and productivity via gamification

Games empower learners, enrich learning experiences and boost learner engagement in the course material, they helped their learners stay focused and develop effective studying habits by gamifying their courses. 71% of their learners reported that gamification had had a positive impact on their learning experience, and data displayed a clear correlation between high gamification scores and strong assignment marks.

2) Cost-effective remote learning with online tutoring

The global tutoring market is growing at 13.7% CAGR, and Asia is emerging as one of the most lucrative markets for online education. Advancements in technologies, including the incorporation of artificial intelligence, are now making it increasingly possible for students to seek and receive virtual tutoring assistance at the point of need. Providing lecturers using professional development in technology is essentially the first step before upgrading to a higher functioning LMS. While online tutoring helps students learn from anywhere anytime in an organised manner, it is also helpful in the corporate world. Online training can help save on the cost of running development programmes while managing to provide useful data to monitor the progress, track adoption levels, and more.

3) Immersive learning with virtual reality (VR)

VR technology has become commonplace in the gaming experiential industries, and as VR technology has become more accessible and affordable more educational institutions are starting to pay attention. Innovative post-secondary institutions are now turning to VR, integrated with mobile learning to create digital learning scenes for immersive learning opportunities and to enhance students’ understanding of complicated subject matter.

4) Learning on-the-go with mobile learning

The smartphone has reshaped our entire lifestyles, putting the world quite literally at our fingertips. Students are increasingly accessing online learning on mobile devices. Increasing computing power and rich features on these devices make for a dynamic and holistic learning experience, that is powerfully portable, enabling them to learn wherever, whenever. The broad availability of mobile devices globally also facilitates the delivery of learning experiences to nations and individuals that typically would be denied the benefit of post-secondary education.

5) Video-based learning allows learners to learn at their own pace

It’s now easier than ever for lecturers to deliver video-based classes and content. Students find video-based learning more engaging, and, unlike in a traditional classroom, they can repeat unfamiliar points as often as they require, and go as fast or slow as they need, allowing them to learn at their own pace. Video analytics help lecturers better understand how students are interacting with the content, with data on what videos students are watching or rewatching most, at what point their attention tapers off and they stop watching, and so on.
