As universities make more and more use of AI-driven ed-tech tools and AR/VR platforms to enhance instruction, researchers led by the Campus Computing Project have launched a new initiative to examine how next-generation technology will shape the future of learning.

According to an announcement made at the annual Educause conference earlier this month in Chicago, the new eLearning 2.0 project will explore the potential of emerging ed-tech technologies to transform how faculty approach instruction in the years to come. The initiative will be sponsored and supported by the ed-tech company Class Technologies.

“The emergence of AI and new virtual classroom technologies will be significant catalysts for change across all sectors of American higher education,” Casey Green, founder of The Campus Computing Project, said in a statement announcing the project. “Campus officials are eager for data and guidance that will benefit their institutions, faculty and students. We are launching the eLearning 2.0 Project to provide timely data and insights to help academic institutions navigate an exciting and high-impact future.”
