Infographic: AI and Academic Video

A recent survey conducted by Sonic Foundry’s Mediasite and University Business (via EdTech Magazine) notes how 90 percent of leaders from U.S. colleges and universities believe students will use some form of on-demand educational videos for learning purpose in the near future.

Referring to a potential platform for such videos as a “Netflix model for learning”, the article states that “recent breakthroughs in artificial intelligence can help students find the best videos”.

The use of videos in the classroom is increasing all the time and it makes sense the developers of a on-demand service for educational videos would base their model on the likes of Netflix and YouTube, two tech companies who dominate the digital video space thanks to their large selections of videos and simple-to-use interface.

Sonic Foundry and University Business also provided an infographic detailing how college and university leaders in the U.S. believe artificial intelligence will impact educational videos.
