The technological revolution, primarily driven by third-platform technologies, has had a disruptive influence across all sectors. It has changed the ways businesses across sectors build products and configure their services. One of the areas experiencing the benefits of digital transformation is education, illustrated by the range of innovative software and mobile app development for the education industry on a regular basis. Technology innovation in the education sector is propelled by startups delivering digital solutions that offer the next level of the learning environment to users. Educational technology can help reduce workload, increase efficiencies, engage students and communities, and provide tools to support excellent teaching and raise student attainment.
Technologies such as Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Mixed Reality (AR/VR/MR), robotics, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are already changing education. AR technology has been utilised in e-learning platforms to promote contextual learning by providing 3D visualisation of several topics like human anatomy. AR/VR technology can deliver a 360-degree view of the human body to help students know more about the digestive, respiratory, circulatory, skeletal, and renal systems. 3D visualisation systems and touch screens are proven to increase student participation by allowing them to explore the complex relationships between different parts of the body, which would not otherwise be possible.
