How EdTech Wave Can Be Boosted By No Code Platforms
With the help of no-code platforms, EdTech can design and deploy the best-in-class apps for a variety of purposes.
No code platforms are the future of app development. Gartner predicts that 65% of app development will be through these platforms by year 2024. It cannot be ignored that the whole digital ecosystem globally, including India, has evolved swiftly over the past few years. Technology per se has made significant inroads especially since the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic, which acted as a catalyst for digital transformation. One sector that has relied heavily on technology during this period is EdTech. The industry has seen millions of dollars getting pumped in this sphere and a number of new EdTech platforms have also been launched in the country over the past few months.
The development phase in EdTech has, however, just started and there is still a massive scope for them to evolve technologically. This may bring about a revamp in many apps or influx of many new apps in the near future as EdTech now face the challenge to stay relevant in the post-pandemic environment. No code solutions can help EdTech to evolve at a more rapid pace, as the time to build a new feature and integrate the same is short and efficient.
With the help of no-code platforms, EdTech can design and deploy the best-in-class apps for a variety of purposes. For instance, by integrating no-code mechanism, EdTech can help educational institutions in restructuring their student recruitment processes as well as alumni donation management, among other similar activities and bring about an efficiency.
EdTech can further make use of no-code solutions to develop and integrate high-end technology such as chatbots, which is a perfect tool for students to ensure an instant resolution of queries and doubts. In case students face an obstacle during an assessment or prep test, they can reach out to their teachers instantly through chatbots. In fact, the bots can be programmed to use adequate data and information to assist the students without unnecessary manual intervention. Elements such as live documents, texting, video conferencing etc can also be integrated through chatbots.
Such tools, integrated with the help of no-code platforms, can also be instrumental in tracking the progress as well as requirements of a learner, thanks to the advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning. This way
EdTech can bring in features which are going to be relevant and help a variety of education institutions sustain their business goals in a long run.
Apart from this, higher education institutions are seeing an increase in demand for new age applications to help with the learning process. As the demand for education related mobile apps continues to grow at a rapid pace, the backlog of new app developments is piling high in higher education institutions. No code platforms make it possible to cut through the pile-up. Through no-code platforms, the higher education institutions can deliver innovation even under tight budgets. By leveraging no-code powered EdTech, higher education organizations can create simplified, easy-to-use apps that operate the way students, educators, and staff work and make it easy to adopt. Often, there’s no training required to learn to use these apps because they’re so intuitive by nature.
Apart from this, the educational institutions can themselves leverage the no-code platforms to build their own custom solutions to address their unique problems. Through a well-designed mobile application, schools, colleges and coaching centres can create their own digital identity, which would otherwise be another brand building exercise for them. This prevents an additional expenses, conserving the limited budgets most educational institutes have. Even governments at both state and central levels can develop and execute these solutions at a very short notice, making education accessible to the poorest and remotest parts of the country, thanks to 4G and smartphone penetration.
The use of no code application development also reduces the learning and teaching cost per student. On an educational app, ready reference materials are available on the go and interaction with teachers is also swift and personalized. Integrating no code applications in the educational sector, also reduces the learning and teaching cost per student. With such tools, educational institutions can boost student engagement, offer personalized individual experiences and even simplify their administrative processes. No coding platforms deliver necessary services and functions in smart and practical ways that are in sync with the latest technology.
