Presentation: How AI and Analytics are Shaping the Future Virtual Classrooms

Presented by:  Fred Dixon, CEO of Blindside Networks
When: Thursday Nov. 23 at 1:30-2:00pm  / Berlin Time (7:30-8:00am EST)
Room TLM18D

As technology continues to advance, Pedagogy – the science of teaching and learning – is even more relevant today. A key measurement of any class, physical or virtual, is “Did students learn?”.

In this presentation, Fred Dixon, co-Founder of BigBlueButton Inc., will explore how AI can assist educators in creating more opportunities for applied learning during their virtual classes, and how related analytics can help educators pin-point students that are struggling and give them feedback in the moment, thereby improving learning outcomes.

This presentation covers 3 topics:

  • Framework for evaluating effective use of AI and analytics in the virtual classroom
  • How BigBlueButton is implementing this framework
  • Examples of using the framework to judge the effectiveness (or not!) of using AI in teaching virtual classes.
