  3. 3. 3 Agenda • Digital Education – Trends powered by Emerging Technologies • Digital Education Ecosystem • Seven Technology ‘Pillars’ for Digital Education • Digital Education – Transformational Technologies • Learning in the ‘Cloud’ • Learning Big using Data • Augmenting Education with Virtual Reality and Sensing Capabilities • Education from ‘Everything’ • Digital Education Crystal Ball • Harvesting Value from Developments in Digital Education
  4. 4. 4 Digital Education – Trends powered by Emerging Technologies Information dissemination: The necessity to disseminate information to large masses coupled with the social awareness for the need for education has led to explosion of various technological innovations in Digital Education (DE). Technology Sustenance: Corporates have recognized the ability of DE technologies in generating long term benefits and have forayed into mergers, acquisitions and funding. The key factor behind this keen interest is not just for short term monetary benefits but for having a strong technological leadership in a developing market segment.KeyKey TrendsTrends Market dominated by Collaborative Ventures: Prominent models in DE technologies shows a clear pattern of collaboration among various platform developers and vendors. This is expected to make DE technology deployments simpler and effective. Customization is the Key: Currently technologies such as Cloud Computing, Big Data, Augmented Reality, Internet of Things (IoT) are modified to suit various service recipients such as online learners, rural people, physically challenged and corporates. The gamut of beneficiaries from DE technologies is expected to grow to include very diverse groups such as gamers and social networkers.

  8. 8. 8 What Cloud Computing adds to DE School as a Service MOOCOpen source Platforms Breakaway with traditional accessing systems The cloud enabled concept reduces dependency on location cost and improves reachability. Eg: 2tor, Deltak Edu Cloud based technologies introduce sign in/sing on free systems, virtual walls, single click collaboration and simplify the way millions of students accessing a Digital education content. by Eg: OneId, Titan pad, wallwisher, Todaysmeet. Massive Open Online course eliminates the need for institutionalized education by directly connecting students and the educator. The solution is enabled by clouds capability to hold huge amount of content. Digital Education platforms created by open source codes such as moodle, blackbird have the capability to integrate various technologies in a single platform. This will reduce integration issues in cloud based DE solution. Tracking Secure access Cost Reduction Learning in the ‘Cloud’
  9. 9. 9 Learning BIG using DATA High End Dashboards Potential applications of Big Data in DE Evaluation of student Data usage Integrated Data Tracking Reports for guidance counselors in schools Measuring students buying behavior Analytics for universities, colleges and schools Big data has the capability to scale and provide measurable data about various sets of people involved, access information and performance reports. While cloud enables bringing in millions of people on a single collaboration environment, Big data is needed for scaling the environment.

Haptics is expected to be implemented in education to the specially needed.
  11. 11. 11 Education from ‘Everything’ M obile Learning Internet Enabled Objects Virtual Reality Big Data Cloud Com puting Internet ofThings Machine-to-Machine communication will generate connected data which can support the learning process by delivering rich content through smart objects. IoT is expected to be implemented in research centers, defense and energy resource center trainings as these are the places where learners will be needing data flow while they focus on their tasks. •Internet-enabled objects allow efficient and real-time data collection through network of sensors. •Remote controlling of equipment across distances through sensors. •Cataloging documents and other items, tracking attendance and many other purposes. • In natural sciences various species, organ activities can be tracked live by sensors and can be projected in class room using simulators giving a rich learning experience to the audience.
