As the economy evolves along with new age technologies impacting businesses, governments, societies, higher educational institutions and Universities would need to adapt and embrace online education and e-learning experiences as part of regular operations to increase their reach, visibility, and offerings by providing access to students irrespective of geographical presence. This has led to assessment of key driving factors related to learning effectiveness, changing student lifestyles, need for innovation, focus on learning outcomes and drive cost effective methods without compromising on quality, content and assess student – faculty relationships. The research study examined some well-established theories and models and constructed subjective debates in the process developing student-friendly tools, inclusive and quality education that accommodates a range of learning experiences and styles. While the purpose of this research is to validate and review growth of ‘e-texts’, ‘personalized learning’,’ adaptive learning’, ‘flipped classrooms’ with firstly quality and costs; and lastly quality and efficiency. The research involved conducting qualitative and quantitative data collection process using a mixed method strategy that supported purposive sampling techniques. The design of questionnaires and conduct of interviews for studying educational experiences by using statistical tools for validation of data collected was deployed to establish a connect with the original research objectives. The results on data analysis post using regression analysis and co-efficient correlation provided the following interesting pattern which meets the several requirements for higher education institutions to consider: 1) Cost effectiveness and affordability being a primary concern apart from creating student friendly learning tools to examine the potential of online learning by shortening the length of programs. 2) the study also discussed of how online learning would enhance international collaborations to define simplicity in the learning process which essentially means that there are issues related to conceptualization and student assessments that needs prime focus. 3) Rapid growth experienced in smart technologies using technology platforms (AI, Robotics, Mobile App-based learning), it was found that students preferred mobile learning platform as a strong median in supporting their learning experiences. While the use of AI as a learning analytics model seems to hold a future for further researchers to examine possibilities of along with studying how machine learning and robotic enabled teaching and facilitation process that would throw an interesting experience for future researchers to explore further studies.
