SEAMOLEC Inspires: Innovative Strategy Introducing Internet of Things (IoT) in Education System

Internet of Things (IoT) is a concept that refers to the connection and interaction between electronic devices, sensors, software, and people through the internet network. The basic idea behind IoT is to enable everyday objects, both physical objects and electronic devices, to communicate and exchange data automatically without requiring human intervention.

The implementation of IoT is not only limited to everyday life but also in various fields, including Education. IoT can be used to enhance the learning experience through solutions such as smart classrooms, real-time student performance monitoring and analysis, and facilitating distance learning.
