eLearning Trends To Watch Out For In 2018 Infographic
The learning process doesn’t end once you graduate from college, and the term shouldn’t be mixed with education because education yields temporary results, while learning brings permanent improvements. We are capable of absorbing knowledge throughout our whole life and it is never too late to learn new things if you are determined and motivated.
The problem about learning in this day and age is that things change extremely fast and world knowledge keeps growing exponentially. Something that we learned as little as 5 years ago may have changed drastically in the meantime, and our knowledge and skills can easily become outdated and irrelevant.
So, how can we overcome this problem? With constant learning. Just like working out regularly helps our bodies be in a good shape, constant learning helps our minds stay healthy and proactive which consequently results in a constant growth of our learning capacities.
Luckily for everyone, the concept of eLearning has been developing and improving over the past two decades. Today, there is a plethora eLearning platforms available online, making constant learning absolutely possible for anyone, anywhere and at any time.
As we’re now nearing the end of the year 2017, we think it’s the right time to look at the status of the eLearning industry and see what we can expect to see from it in 2018.
What we’re seeing these days is a continuous rise in the number of freelancers creating eLearning courses. The globally available online learning market contains an abundance of resources for people to pick up new skills, but one thing that should be focused on most is the smartphone market. In 2017 alone, so many outstandingly powerful smartphones were released that it’s very likely all eLearning platforms will push their content hard towards those users. We’re also frequently hearing about how cheap and affordable both smartphones and learning courses have recently become (for example, you can learn how to set up your own LinkedIn profile with the help of a specialist live for no more than $10!).
With these trends, it’s never been clearer that a different future is to come when speaking about ways to pick up new skills and share knowledge than what was once predicted.
We’re already deep inside the online world in which we live and breathe through social media and online multimedia platforms, and inside this beautiful world where people all over the world get connected, learning new things has never been easier. This goes not just for students, but for people of all other age groups. With that said, it surely won’t take long before we see eLearning courses exclusive to mobile devices and tablets.
An infographic covering the mentioned trends in eLearning was made by Zeqr, a knowledge sharing platform. For those looking to share their knowledge online or pick up new skills, these facts are quite the eyebrow raisers, because we can easily spot a lot of benefits that come with eLearning. Some of them include:
- The ability to learn wherever you want.
- Classes that can be downloaded and then watched offline.
- Learning at your own pace, meaning you can learn at literally any time of day (or night).
The eLearning market is growing strong in financial terms, and with everyone around us switching to online forms of education, most traditional forms of learning will soon be ditched completely.
