National Technology Day: The impact of emerging technologies in EdTech 


Emerging technologies have revolutionized the e-learning industry in unimaginable ways. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that they are the gamechangers in improving the quality of education in virtual learning. Learning through technology is transforming the teaching process and learning experience as a whole. As technology plays a key role in the e-learning industry, emerging technologies play a key role in improving learner experience. The EdTech industry is focusing on including advanced technologies to enable self-paced learning.  

Artificial Intelligence (AI) 

AI has marked its presence in every sector possible, and education is no exception. With respect to e-learning, AI has the potential to personalize the learning experience for every student. Most EdTech companies have AI-integrated platforms that smoothen the learning journey of students. AI has replaced the conventional classroom setting with a more personalized, student-oriented approach.  

AI-based adaptive learning platforms can analyze student performance data, identify knowledge gaps and provide personalized e-learning content based on learner preferences. AI has the ability to generate interactive content like on-the-go quizzes, simulations, and scenarios that makes the learning experience more immersive.  


Gamification has become increasingly popular in the e-learning industry, as it offers a personalized experience to suit individual learning styles. Most importantly, the use of gamification elements helps learners apply their knowledge in real-world situations, which plays a key role in improving overall online learning experience for individuals. Gamification can be applied to a wide range of learning formats, making it a versatile tool in the e-learning industry. Most EdTech companies today are offering gamified courses to learners, and it is going to be an integral part of e-learning globally.
