ONLINE IS WHERE THE LEARNERS NEED TO BE IN 2020
With the continuous uprise in the number of smartphone users and the latest stats about how cheap and affordable smartphones have become within the last year, it’s more than clear that we’re looking at a different future when it comes to picking up new skills.
In today’s world, learning new things online is a breeze for people of all age groups. With movement focused on making e-learning platforms responsive being fierce, it won’t take more than a year or two before we see courses created by professionals exclusively for mobile devices or laptops.
An infographic on e-learning was brought to you by an eLearning platform Zeqr, and they’ve decided to take a look at what trends the year of 2020 will bring to people looking to learn online. Interestingly enough, we can easily see that e-learning comes with an abundance of fantastic benefits, such as:
- Learning from your home
- Having an always-available repository of online classes
- Being able to learn at your own pace.
A $170+ billion market (as of 2018/19) is booming with students showing more and more interest in switching to all-online forms of education, ditching almost all traditional forms of learning.
Five out of ten classes will be delivered exclusively online in 2020. Will your class be among them?
Which are the most remarkable improvements for this year in eLearning?
Big Data: The big data in eLearning or the advanced reports feature let’s you keep control, track and analyze parts of the training process like course completion rates, evaluate the personalized learning experiences, track online training efficiency from different angles, letting you know what’s working and what needs to be reworked, what is being more used and what needs to be improved on almost every aspect of both training and platform performance processes.
The impact of big data can be huge depending on the level of detail and analysis that you put into it.
Competencies: Competencies are a tool that does not go out of style. With the help of learning paths and skills-guided education, you can deliver highly personalized training to your users, ensuring the success of training programs like never before. This trend will never be left out of the most effective methods of education in the world of eLearning.
Artificial Intelligence: The role of artificial intelligence is relatively new and has much to learn in terms of how content is adapted to the prediction, communication, interaction and feedback techniques of artificial intelligence.
Artificial intelligence, well implemented, can bring great benefits to the virtual training system in general, building a unique communication channel with users, who will have the ability to learn from their language to deliver concise and accurate answers about the doubts that may arise during training and, in addition to that, it has the ability to provide really important information about user behaviour within the platform and their performance during eLearning training.
mLearning: Mobile learning continues to revolutionize the world of education. With the help of tools such as augmented reality, the way users relate to the content has changed dramatically. In this way, by having access to their training programs, lessons, course material, videos or even assessments through their mobile devices, users will be able to carry out their courses from anywhere and at any time they prefer.
Developing a permanent and accessible connection between users/students and the content they must access is key to get a quality education and much more if we talk about the new generations of learners and their relationship with technology. It is essential that companies or educational institutions implement strategies related to m-learning within their learning programs.
Augmented Reality: Augmented reality is one of the most amazing innovations of recent years. With this technique the level of approach between technology and the user is unprecedented and of course, it is not at all foreign to eLearning education.
The augmented reality applied to your training programs has the main task of “enriching” real objects with other capabilities and characteristics, allowing you, for example, to create a personalized tutor who will be “present” at all times. This technique is highly useful to increase the levels of attention and retention on the part of the users, keeping them attentive to the lessons and attracting their attention again when they lose their concentration.
