  • The Future of e-Learning
    Corporate e-Learning technology has a long and diverse pedigree. As far back as the 1980s, companies were adopting computer-based training to supplement traditional classroom activities. More recently, rich web-based applications have added streaming audio and video, real-time collaboration and other new tools to the e-Learning mix. At the same time, the growing availability of informal learning tools--a category that includes everything from web searches to social media posts--are having a major impact on how, where and when employees engage in job-related learning. In some ways, these changes have turned the corporate e-Learning landscape into a place that workers 20 years ago would not recognize. According to analyst Josh Bersin, for example, more than 70% of all corporate training today is now done online. In spite of these changes, some aspects of e-Learning have not evolved. Many "new" learning applications simply provide another channel for presenting traditional classroom materials, such as lectures and presentations. As a result, e-Learning often continues to be a relatively passive, highly structured activity that is rooted firmly in the past. Over the next several years, this situation will change. New technology promises to take e-Learning out of the traditional, classroom-based paradigm and into a true "digital native" context. These new e-Learning tools will allow employees to engage in more active and realistic training activities, and they will incorporate emerging social learning and informal learning methods. This white paper will explore the nature and implications of these next-generation e-Learning trends. Specifically, it will answer three fundamental questions: What unique traits set today's cutting-edge e-Learning tools apart from their predecessors? What are some specific examples of next-generation e-Learning tools? How can these tools increase e-Learning ROI and enterprise productivity? The changes described in this paper have significant implications for companies that invest in e-Learning programs. Download it now to find out more.
