With COVID-19 sending everyone home, millions of students now find themselves using online learning platforms and technologies. But the story of online learning starts long before this. By 2025, online learning is projected to reach $300 billion. This comprises a number of learning technologies – all of which do different things for the user that can be both good and bad. Mobile learning is one of the biggest learning technologies and it allows users to take their learning on the go and it allows educators to check their students’ progress much more easily. Using immersive technologies, such as augmented and virtual reality, let learners truly feel what they are learning and can give the visual representation no textbook can. Artificial intelligence can also be used to help craft a unique path for every student without needing the total devotion of the teacher.
