Knowledge, Learning, Community

So much of online learning takes place in environments like Zoom these days it would be a mistake to not think about where these are heading. This article gives us the perspective of three of education-focused Zoom employees at the recent company conference. What can we expect? "AI-powered translation is already in the works," the say (to which I say: it can't come soon enough). Also, more classroom management and instruction features, brought to you by Blackboard cofounder Michael Chasen (because the world doesn't have enough learning 'management' already). Also, augmented or VR integrations "offering 360-degree tours of museums or job sites like film sets." They also mention personalization, but nobody in the discussion seemed to know what that might mean.
