Earlier this month, Ryan Eudy, CEO of ej4, penned an excellent article in Forbes magazine.
“The reality is that most learning technologies have been around for a long time,” Eudy wrote. “The challenge for entrepreneurs and business owners is not finding the latest, hottest tech solution. The challenge is answering the question: Now that these technologies have matured, how can they be crafted into effective learning programs that achieve business goals?
“We can see how the industry is addressing that question through three technologies: gamification, short-form video and mobile learning.”
Eudy predicts that e-learning in 10 years will not have changed that much since the recent advent of mobile learning. The invisible difference will be that “Big Data solutions will be running in the background, giving instructors and training directors insights into learning rates, content use, retention and more.”
