This 21st century belongs to the internet and mobility. Learning is one of the most important parts of life. Of course, it requires a lot of time and money. Since, ancient times we have had schools and institutions for learning and the rich few have had the privileged of access to these. The information revolution is making everything easy to access and the way people learn new skills has been impacted the most by this change. Technology does not have any preference of schools, type of students, social status etc. Students or anyone who wants to learn can access videos, study material and can even participate in real time video conferences with experts or teachers all over the world.
The institution of education is changing dramatically fueled by web and mobile technologies. Artificial Intelligence is going to take this even further. Imagine how convenient it will become when a student will have an instructor available anytime he/she feels like. It reminds me of the time when students who were below average had to spend extra time at schools along with the teachers to improve their results. This is not required in this era of Artificial Intelligence which will help the below average students to understand their weaknesses and provide instructions based on these weaknesses to improve their performances. And digital learning is not just limited to students and educational aspect, one can learn anything anytime on internet be it playing a musical instrument, a dance form, a good dish, a language, anything. It is the time to adapt to new technologies to be an active part of this ever changing world and digital learning provides us a platform to learn new skills and update ourselves with the changes that are being offered all around the world.
