Artificial Intelligence for Students: Adult Learners - MedCerts

Is Short-Term Online Career Training Right for You?

The growth of artificial intelligence (AI) technology in recent years has proved to be beneficial across multiple industries. E-commerce and other business websites use it to power chatbots to offer 24/7 customer service. Manufacturers use it to automate assemblies and enhance efficiency in their warehouses. AI is even being used in education, not only for grading and assessments but also for creating a more immersive learning environment.

Here’s how you can use AI as a student to make the most of your educational program.

1. Tutoring Support

As a student, you may find yourself struggling to understand course materials, particularly in a remote learning program where you can’t easily schedule a sit-down with your instructor. New AI tools for students include tutoring platforms that can evaluate your homework and help you practice the course material outside the classroom.

MedCerts programs utilize AI to guide you through an immersive learning process. With 3D animations and simulated real-world scenarios, you’ll see how your choices play out in a clinical setting. These tools teach you valuable skills like critical thinking and empathy.
Many AI tutoring platforms are being developed with schools, offering personalized instructions with engaging activities to help you learn the material.

2. Summarizing Complex Topics

Using machine learning, AI can help you better understand your course materials by breaking down complex topics.

MedCerts programs make it easy for you to understand the lessons by exposing you to real-world scenarios that give you a better sense of how you will apply what you’ve learned. You get to work with 2D and 3D interactive skill activities that cover everything from sanitizing equipment to report customization. Instead of simply reading about your new career and sitting through lectures, you get a chance to practice.

Each topic also includes insights from industry experts who share their experiences to give you a strong foundation of knowledge.

3. Condensing Material Into Scannable Points

When you’re trying to balance school with everyday responsibilities, the amount of reading in your coursework can seem overwhelming. AI tools for students can scan course material and break it down into digestible study guides and digital textbooks that help you learn the information without reading hundreds of pages of text.

AI-powered programs can also create graphics, bulleted lists, and highlights that give you the most important points in each lesson.

4. Proofing and Editing Your Work

AI-based proofreading platforms use machine learning to read your writing assignments and suggest corrections for mistakes. When you’re taking classes online, you may be asked to participate in discussions and other writing assignments. An AI proofreading tool can scan your discussion posts to help you correct errors and clarify your talking points.

5. Don’t Rely Solely on AI

Advances in AI technology can help you tailor your education to your learning style. It can also help improve your writing by identifying errors and making suggestions. However, you shouldn’t rely on AI alone. Once you’ve had the AI program proofread your work, give it another look and see if you can polish it.

You should also fact-check everything written by AI and customize the information using your own words. Although AI for students can help you understand the course material, you still have to put in the work.
