Pedagogy & Education Artificial intelligence: How AI will revolutionise education

Artificial intelligence (AI) is not only revolutionising the field of training, but also profoundly transforming learning experiences for both trainers and learners. This article explores how AI is changing both perspectives, highlighting the unique benefits and challenges for each group.


Part 1: Impact of AI on the Trainer Experience

Automation and Efficiency

AI provides trainers with powerful tools to automate many tasks, such as assessing work and providing feedback. This automation allows trainers to focus on more rewarding aspects of teaching, such as one-to-one mentoring and developing innovative teaching strategies.

Use case example:

In an online course with hundreds of students, an AI system is used to automatically grade exam answers. The AI can not only mark multiple choices but also analyse the answers to assess understanding and application of the concepts taught. This frees the instructor from the tedious task of manual marking, allowing them to concentrate on improving course content and interacting directly with students.


Analysis and Insights

Thanks to data analysis, trainers can obtain valuable information about learner performance and preferences. This information helps to refine teaching methods and personalise interactions with learners.

Example use case

In a vocational training course, an AI system analyses learners’ interactions with training material, including success rates on exercises and time spent on different modules. AI identifies areas where learners are struggling and provides the trainer with detailed data to adjust the course or offer additional support in these areas.



Part 2: Impact of AI on the Learner Experience

Personalised Learning

AI plays a key role in creating personalised learning experiences. By analysing the learning styles and rhythms of individuals, AI can adapt content and learning paths to better match the needs of each learner, making learning more engaging and effective.

Use case example:

As part of an apprenticeship, AI creates adaptive pathways based on each learner’s skills and interests. If a learner excels in a subject, the AI suggests more advanced modules or similar subjects. If a learner has difficulty, it recommends additional resources or revisions of basic concepts, ensuring a tailored learning experience.



Support and flexibility

AI tools such as chatbots provide continuous support, allowing learners to access help and resources at any time. This availability improves the flexibility of learning, particularly for those juggling other commitments.

Use case example

An AI-powered virtual assistant is integrated into an e-learning platform to provide 24/7 support. Learners can ask questions about the course, get clarification on specific topics, and receive advice on how to manage their study time. This tool makes learning more flexible, allowing learners to receive help in real time, whatever their schedule.



The integration of artificial intelligence into the world of training is turning traditional teaching and learning experiences on their head. For trainers, AI brings increased efficiency and valuable insights, while for learners, it offers improved personalisation and support. Together, these advances are shaping a future where education is more adaptive, accessible and immersive.
