The eLearning industry is booming right now, and for good reason: by taking advantage of learning over the internet, eLearning is more accessible and convenient for students and often more cost effective versus learning in a conventional classroom setting.
Here are a few trends in eLearning you’re likely to see more of in the future.
eLearning Industry Trend: The Cloud
The cloud equals accessibility. With eLearning materials in the cloud, students can access it any time they find convenient on any device with an internet connection. As security for the cloud and data speeds continue to improve, more and more eLearning resources are expected to move to the cloud, giving students greater accessibility and more freedom in when and where they can learn.
eLearning Industry Trend: mLearning
eLearning is “electronic learning” and mLearning is – you guessed it – “mobile learning.” One of the top trends for eLearning is making it mobile, so students can access their courses on small and handheld devices like tablets and smartphones. Maybe someday smart watches will be mini classrooms, too.
eLearning Industry Trend: Data
Data is where it’s at. For teachers and course developers, data gathered as students go through their courses is invaluable in helping them improve courses and help students as individuals or as a group.
eLearning Industry Trend: Personalization
In eLearning, personalization can be something as small as greeting the student by name in an email (rather than addressing the student as “Student”) or something as big as tailoring the course content to the individual student’s needs. Personalization is a powerful way to increase engagement and learning.
