Workers Need Availability of a Learning Environment in Which They Can Find Info, Collaborate and Build Their Own learning Plans.


The “need for speed” in most of today’s training organizations is accelerating due to several other disruptive trends that are driving the $12 billion e-learning market. These trends include the evolution of the Internet into a highly interactive, collaborative and social technology that has gone mainstream; the continued rapid growth and widespread adoption of new e-learning technologies, including mobile and virtual classrooms; and the continued evolution of video as a learning tool.


As a result, e-learning is taking on a more interactive and social format that provides learners with small pieces of learning content, often created by the learners themselves and other subject-matter experts. This content and knowledge is framed and accessible within the context of the learner’s daily work — anytime, anywhere, synchronously or asynchronously — to create learning as a continuous process, not as an event or in a page-turning format. This next-generation e-learning uses video, video-conferencing, simulations, games, virtual classrooms and digital content libraries. And all of it is tailored to learners’ business-driven goals, their professional goals, their individual learning styles, and their preferred social networks.
