COVID-19 brought massive changes to the educational system globally. What was once thought to be largely infeasible has now become desirable and commonplace. Completely digital or hybrid learning experiences are now being utilized from K12 to higher education. However, there is limited infrastructure currently in place to support the dilemmas that arise from digital and remote learning. Put simply, companies like Zoom (NASDAQ: ZM) seem ill-equipped to handle all the nuances that play a role in online learning.
That’s why artificial intelligence (AI) platforms and integrations are so integral to the future of the education sector. Ambow Education Holdings Ltd. (NYSE: AMBO) is leading the charge in integrating AI technology into the educational sector. Their ground-breaking solution, known as HybriU, is an advanced digital education total solution designed to empower students and bridge the gap between academia and industry. With the help of cutting-edge connective technology, HybriU aims to shatter traditional limitations in languages, regions, academia and industry – providing a seamless and immersive learning experience both online and offline.
Ambow is a technology-driven educational company that primarily operates in the United States. Their latest offering, the HybriU AI digital education solution, is powered by the groundbreaking OOOK technology and is a patented solution that aims to modernize and enhance educational and workforce training for students. By integrating this powerful technology, Ambow aims to provide students with comprehensive and up-to-date resources, equipping them with the skills needed to thrive in today's rapidly evolving world.
It is clear that the pandemic has significantly impacted the education system and teachers as much as students, bringing virtual elements to the classroom. With the need for hybrid education and technology integration, teachers have been burdened with additional responsibilities. Without proper maintenance and understanding, as well as functional platforms, teachers find themselves overwhelmed with technological demands, often taking away from their primary role of teaching. The implementation of AI technology, such as the HybriU digital AI classroom solution, can alleviate these problems. HybriU enables teachers to teach in a natural and easy manner, similar to a traditional classroom setting.
The HybriU AI digital classroom is equipped with a student and teacher-tracking camera to ensure that a virtual student is not missing any important information or demonstrations. There are also mics throughout the classroom to pick up student and teacher statements, as well as a podium mic. All of this helps support seamless learning so no student is distracted by poor quality or unable to hear valuable information from a teacher or peers.
HybriU’s utilization of OOOK technology enables the creation of personalized content that caters to diverse student populations. A shining example of HybriU's commitment to inclusion is its live subtitle feature and AI-generated voiceover, which allow students to access content in their native language. This feature is a game changer for those in virtual or hybrid learning environments, where language barriers can present significant difficulties.
The technology offers benefits beyond inclusivity – students no longer need to dedicate time to taking notes as the AI will take care of that for them. Students can further engage in the learning experience by tagging and commenting on the AI-generated transcript, which is efficiently organized using an AI-powered indexing and tagging system. The tagging system also allows for efficient tracking of students’ progress and areas they may need additional support. These comments provide teachers with real-time feedback that can help with enhancing course materials and teaching style, creating an optimal learning atmosphere for all students.
HybriU AI also offers unique features like 3D LED walls, which allow students to view complex models precisely and accurately. This is incredibly useful for disciplines like biology and medicine. Some classrooms also offer screens where students are reflected so the in-person teacher does not miss out on valuable interaction. For students who are being taught by remote teachers, there are O-Screens that offer lifelike, full-body views of the teacher.
The online education sector is projected to grow from its 2022 value of $192 billion to $602 billion by 2030 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.2% over 2022-2030. The advantages offered by HybriU which are specifically designed to address this new education paradigm of hybrid learning potentially place Ambow Education in the right place at the right time to be a driving force in the industry and propel online learning experiences into the future.
