Machine Learning Application in E-learning

My talk on machine learning applications in the corporate learning world. Given at the Instructional design and e-learning meetup group on May 17, 2018 in Vancouver.

Dark Future of Learning

“E-learning dehumanize people” ” – the emphasis on technology in online education is making human more machine like, instead of leveraging technology for a better learning experience. E-learning was once the poster child of the future of education and has become a large industry ($107 billion by the end of 2015). Universities are cramping more e-components in their course catalogs and 74% of companies state that they currently use some form of learning management systems (LMS) and related educational technologies. However, the sense of isolation, the lack of motivation, and the mind-numbingly boring, one-size-fits-all design all contributed to the dehumanizing experience of e-learning. As a result, the online learning attrition rate is higher than ever with some for-profit college reaching the 90 percentile. In this presentation, we will explore the perils of poorly design e-learning, how it contributes to the decline in formal education attendance, and demotivates learners.
