Academic and Administrative Role of Artificial Intelligence in Education
- Administrative level (admission, counseling, library services, etc.)
- Academic Level (assessment, feedback, tutoring, etc.)
2. Literature Review
2.1. Artificial Intelligence Applications in Grading/Assessment
2.2. Artificial Intelligence Applications in Admission
2.3. Artificial Intelligence Applications as Virtual Reality (VR)
2.4. Artificial Intelligence Applications in Learning Analytics
- The scope of this study is limited to the AIA discussed above, although there are many other applications of AI in the education sector like distance learning, tutoring, trial, and error elimination, Personalized Education, human resource management, etc., which will be covered the incoming part of the research.
- The study is not tested quantitatively to make it more generalized.
- As the research discusses the impact or role of AI technology in education, it has a strong link with society. In this study, we have reviewed the positive aspects/roles of AI applications and not discussed its negative or ethical concerns in education or in society. The results of AI implementation may be different and may depend on case to case and society to society in the shape of positive and negative roles. The same phenomenon is common for other scientific research [74,75,76].
6. Future Work
- There are many other applications of AI in the education sector like distance learning, tutoring, trial, and error elimination, Personalized Education, human resource management, etc., which can be researched in the future.
- Testing the study quantitatively to make it more generalized.
- A systematic review of AIA can be conducted to make the area more explored.
