Find out how full fibre connectivity from CityFibre can bring learning to life
The growth of the internet has brought with it endless opportunities to learn new things; whether it’s for work, school or a hobby, the online world means there is an infinite amount of information at our fingertips.
The key to being able to access these new learning opportunities is connectivity. Access to a fast, reliable, high-capacity internet service is vital here - especially when it comes to new data-hungry learning tools – and a full fibre connection, which is 100 times faster than most current UK broadband services, is the best technology for the job.
This is why CityFibre is investing to bring its full fibre network, which is the fastest, most reliable network technology available, to practically every home and business here in the UK.
This new full fibre network will make it possible for you to take advantage of all the benefits of online learning, from the ease of access and controllable pace, to the ability to choose from a wider range of options that suit your own unique learning style and ambition.
Immersive technologies, such as Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), for example, are already transforming education, making learning a whole new experience.
There are countless examples of this technology being used, which include The Unimersive, which is an app that uses VR to help people learn a new language, and the Gibson App which uses AR to help people learn guitar.
Everyone learns in different ways; some need to read information, while others need to see it illustrated. So how do you deliver a learning experience which suits everyone? Artificial Intelligence (AI) is enabling the development of training programmes that are completely personalised to each person.
Similarly, adaptive learning platforms are being used to meet the needs of each learner, ensuring that they can understand the information, learn at their own pace, and repeat any sections they don’t understand.
Prodigy Math is just one example of this. The game, which teaches mathematics, uses an algorithm to match the learning to the student’s style and level.
Another benefit of AI-enabled technology is it is largely based online, meaning you can get 24/7 access to learning. And, with fast, reliable connectivity, such as the services enabled by CityFibre’s full fibre network here in the UK, quality online experiences are accessible to all – no matter how data-intensive.
This is just a snapshot of how the way we learn is changing, and the massive opportunities which exist to develop new skills and experience new things.
CityFibre is keen to leave a legacy of good digital skills in our communities. To this end, we have worked with local community groups as part of this years’ #GetOnlineWeek from the 18th of October.
We’ve curated a range of free events that will take place as part of the campaign to help support everyone in being better prepared for an online world. Sign up at GOW2021.com and #GetOnline and #GetConnected
