It offers a review system that can score an applicant’s “personality traits and soft skills” based on a recorded, AI-reviewed video the student submits. After the video is submitted. The company presentation shows students scored on a five-point scale. The score is in different areas such as openness, motivation, agreeableness, and “neuroticism.”

It gives a rating on the basis of different factors like how they interact with a school’s website and respond to its messages. The result that the service provides is 20 times more predictive.
  • Georgia State UniversityThey are at the apex in using chatbots. Its version, Pounce started in 2016. To date, it has answered thousands of responses to prospective students’ questions.
  • Staffordshire University They gave their student” Digital Friend”. It is named Beacon, an AI teaching assistant. It can suggest reading materials and associate students with tutors.

It can also tell student’s locations. It also alerts students on their activity like if they’ve visited the library or inform them that they’ve spent so much time in the dining hall and prompt them to move on.

Pandemic has shifted the offline to online

Southern New Hampshire University, which has 97 percent of its almost 150,000 students online. It is also researching how AI could be used to rate vast numbers of students easily. SNHU is now beginning to use AI to instruct students rather than just grade them. Faby Gagne, the executive director has been experimenting with AI monitoring speech, movement. The speed with which a student reacts to video lessons and using the knowledge to rate achievement.

AI cannot replace human in every situation

AI alone is not a reliable judge of human nature or intention. Highlighted by Jarrod Morgan, the founder, and chief strategy officer of ProctorU. A company that schools employ to administer and track online assessments students take. He discovered that humans are, on average, better at this than machines. In The University of CaliforniaSanta Barbara investigated why students received more emotional support from animated instructors than from real-life instructors. It is discovered that students understood emotion in both human and animated teachers. But they had better, more realistic representations of emotions such as “happy” and “frustrated” if the teacher is human.
