Applications of Artificial Intelligence in Open and Distance Learning
As per the change in trend it is seen that emerging technologies are revolutionizing education. In digital education the use of laptops, tablets, computers and interactive boards are common in schools and colleges. In the modern knowledge-based society there is importance given to distance and e-learning as an innovative approaches in the field of education. The application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Open and Distance Learning (ODL) has led to bridge the gap between student and teacher. ODL relies on the use of machine as it provides opportunity of learning to the students who are not studying in regular mode. Here, AI acts as a means to provide learning opportunities to students, helps the teacher in effective teaching, improves pedagogical methods and enhances learning experiences of students. For instance, AI based tools such as ezTalks Cloud Meeting, WeVideo, scrible and Dropbox etc. are used in ODL mode of education so as to provide learning platform to students. The questions that further arises in the mind of the researcher are whether AI could provide a significant and highly intriguing paradigm shift in the deployment of ODL and whether AI can greatly influence the future of all open and distance learners or not? In this research paper, the researcher will explore several fields whereby AI could be potentially utilised in an ODL institution.
