Education sector digital transformation talks have shifted from “what is it?” to “how do we implement edTech in 2021?” EdTech industry leaders are rethinking technology applications in the educational processes in response to market trends, financial pressure, and growing demand for edTech development companies to optimize educational processes.
As part of this quest, emerging technologies such as AI and ML are finding their way into higher education. AI-powered chatbots address questions about courses, admissions and help desk support.
