We are going through a phase of significant and rapid “learning transformation“. This has led to an adoption of new, immersive approaches to creating impactful learning that can lead to the required performance gain. This is not all. We also see that L&D teams are on the look-out for measures to evaluate the effectiveness of learning.
As a Chief Learning Strategist, I have been part of many such opportunities across the world. The pointers shared by me here reflect my insights from this close interaction and collaboration.
For ease of applicability, I have banded various trends and predictions in 2018 into 3 tracks:
- What will continue to offer value
- Coming of age – An increase in adoption
- Emerging or maturing – Watch out for
Section 1 – What Will Continue To Offer Value
mLearning Or Mobile Learning
Usage of mLearning or Mobile learning adoption in corporate training saw a significant increase in 2017 and this trend will continue. With the maturing of authoring tools that are completely responsive, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) flexibility in training policy will see an even more effective use of mLearning or mobile learning in 2018.
What I see changing in 2018, would be its wider application across all corporate training needs as well as its increased use to support informal learning and digitization of Instructor Led Training (ILT).
