Table of Contents

A popular trope in fictional dystopian literature and movies features a world overrun by robots. Novelists and film creators are certainly master worldbuilders but with the way technology has taken over our everyday lives, it’s not such a stretch of the imagination to think we will make even more giant strides in inventing and innovating ways to make living more effortless.

Today, artificial intelligence is rapidly becoming an integral part of the digital marketing space as an ingredient to creating business growth. Businesses using AI are able to improve their customer targeting, personalization, and automation efforts, resulting in increased efficiency and profitability.

AI also poses a significant impact on the education industry and is expected to continue to transform the way education is delivered and consumed. Here are a few ways that AI is shaping education marketing and how you can succeed in this changing landscape:

Adaptive course materials

AI can be used to create course materials that adapt to the needs and abilities of individual students. This layer of personalization will help keep students engaged and motivated, leading to improved retention rates.

Automation of administrative tasks

AI can automate various administrative tasks in education, including grading assignments and managing student records. This gives educators more room to focus on the important thing: providing high-quality teaching and student support.

Predictive analytics

AI can be used to predict student performance and identify areas where students may need additional support. In fact, Microsoft’s Education Insights “allows teachers to interact with learners on the platform and gain an overview of how well they are progressing, both at the class and individual levels.” The utilization of AI in gathering learners’ data helps educators intervene early and increase student success.


To succeed in the AI landscape, you will need to embrace new technologies and be willing to innovate. This may involve investing in AI-powered solutions and training employees to use them effectively.

You will also need to consider the ethical implications of AI and ensure that their use of the technology is transparent and fair. Consumers are only doing repeat transactions with brands they trust.

By staying up-to-date with the latest developments in AI and carefully considering how it can be used to improve operations, you can position yourself for success in the rapidly-evolving world of AI-supplemented education marketing.

Leading education marketers remain in their top spots by embracing the implications of a tech-led learning landscape: overnight changes in the market demand resilience from brands. Only brands that innovate and welcome disruption create opportunities and continue to dominate their industries.
