Starting last year, K12 educators across the globe were met with the daunting task of moving in-person classrooms into a virtual space. Not only this, but they also had to replicate the same instructional culture without making it seem mechanical. While some resorted to using online tools like google meets, zoom or slack for conducting online classes, there were no proven methods to conduct exams securely. This begs the question: Can AI be integrated with existing EduTech to make way for smarter online classes and exams?

2. Automatic curriculum
Thanks to AI-enabled solutions that have curtailed teacher’s workload. One of the most exciting benefits of AI technology is that it helps teachers shelve traditional methods by setting an automatic curriculum. It helps keep track of the student’s progress and suggests new tasks & assignments depending on how well the student is learning.
3. Opportunity for on-demand tutoring
On-demand tutoring platforms are all the rage. Like forums, many of these platforms allow students to communicate with experts and virtual tutors from different parts of the country.
