4 minute read | July 26, 2023 Share Share

Many have seen just how much AI technology has changed the operation of various industries in recent years. While the innovations surrounding artificial intelligence have been in development for the past decades, only in the few years prior to 2020 did we truly see and experience just how fast AI technology can be adopted into our daily lives. Now, more than ever, AI technology is integrated into our work, home, and even educational institutions and the way we learn.


Among the industries that have flourished with the integration of AI technology in its operations is the education technology industry. The Education technology industry, also known simply as the EdTech industry, has rapidly transformed with the use of AI, specifically with the adaptation of AI-powered chatbots in its core operations. Unlike other industries that have utilized AI-powered chatbots to reduce the amount of repetitive tasks to be done using human resources, the EdTech industry can actually use AI-powered chatbots to not only assist in core operations but to execute these tasks alongside human resources. Below are other examples of chatbot applications in the EdTech industry.

24/7 Teaching Assistants

Teachers as educational assistants in the EdTech industry can use AI-powered chatbots. With AI’s natural language processing (NLP) capabilities, teachers can enhance their quality of teaching and enhance the educational experience of the students. AI-powered chatbots use NLP to understand and process the questions of learners and provide them with instant and personalized answers, all the while allowing the students a human-like conversation that can increase their understanding of the subjects at hand. 


While AI-powered chatbots are not designed to completely replace teachers, educational institutions can use this innovation to accommodate both students and teachers in continuing to learn, even outside operating hours. By using chatbots, educators cannot focus on administrative tasks and create engaging classroom experiences, but they will also be able to extend this to the convenience of their students. 

Student Support

Students, as round-the-clock educational support for queries about their lessons, or even projects and take-home assignments, can use AI-powered chatbots. With the use of AI-powered chatbots, students can gain access to unlimited resources and information regarding their learning tasks and other necessary information that may assist them in completing their learning objectives and achieving an enhanced learning experience. The 24/7 availability of AI-powered chatbots can be leveraged by students who may have inconsistent schedules, such as working students, double major students, and even graduate students. 

Increased Education Accessibility

With AI-powered chatbots, educational institutions can improve the way they allow students to gain access to learning materials, resources, and support. AI-powered chatbots can give various types of learning institutions to improve the way they can personalize automated replies with the use of a chatbot’s NLP.

Improved Administration And Enrollment Processes

Improved administration operations and the streamlining of enrollment processes are two of the most important applications of AI-powered chatbots in the EdTech industry. By automating administrative tasks, chatbots can simplify and even quicken operations and reduce the workload of administrative employees. This way, repetitive tasks can be executed and completed while human resources continue to work on more important duties needed by the institution.

The Revolution Of The EdTech Industry With AI-powered Chatbots

AI-powered chatbot is a game-changer in the EdTech industry. It can simplify administrative tasks and streamline the enrollment process. In addition, it can also function as a teaching assistant and round-the-clock student support. By utilizing AI-powered chatbots, businesses in the EdTech industry can improve their operations and stay ahead of their competitors.
