Future of Robotics in Indian Education System

Robotics is not just in Sci-Fi movies nowadays. It has become a reality of how crucial human problems can be resolved. The education sector is also experiencing the rising impact of robotics in the overall delivery model.


Robotics can influence higher education in India in classroom learning and in facilitating experiential learning. It can support co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. Workshop organization becomes possible by using robotics to create a simulated environment for students, so they can figure out how to apply complex learnings in real-life scenarios.


Instructional robotics driven education can be developed to teach in a tutorial style. The utilization of robots in education will depend upon various factors like cost, the age of students, the subject domain, etc. In the coming years, efforts need to be made for the deployment of robotics equipment and programming for education.


Future of Robotic Virtual Assistant in admission, alumni, placements and more

Digital Robotic Virtual Assistance can grossly improve operations in key departments such as admissions, alumni relations, placements, etc.


Here are a few instances where the use of Digital Robotic Virtual Assistance can bring drastic improvements in the functioning of educational institutions which is much beyond conventional chatbots.
