The advent of technology has undoubtedly paved the way for a significant change in the education realm. The tech-savvy age has transported education from the confines of classrooms to the interfaces of today’s sleek gadgets. Modern day education technology solutions such as Web-based training (WBT), Computer Based Instruction (CBI) and Virtual Learning Environments (VLE), have diminished geographic barriers and have made learning far more convenient than a decade ago. Online self-help video tutorials and virtual classrooms for instance, have alleviated the dependency on institutions, to learn any subject.
One must note that visuals and sound has become imperative to the education sector today. Hence, incorporation of cutting-edge technologies such as Augmented Reality, which amalgamate real-world environments with computer-generated sensory inputs to make learning more interactive, has become a trend. In addition to text, e-learning modules consisting of animated 3D illustrations and audio books have become vital to gather knowledge.
