With the beginning of the new decade, it has been relatively clear that learning and development (L&D) is forever on the mind. Companies would make use of strategies based on tackling the priority. However, leveraging the right training technology would play a significant role in it. Therefore, it would be in your best interest to stay at the top of the latest e-learning trends. You may have a significant solution to your L&D requirements.
The question to ponder upon would be what e-learning trends you should be aware of for your future needs. Find below a few essential e-learning trends suitable to your specific needs.
- Personalized learning helping in L&D entry
- Peer-to-peer learning taking off
- Voice of the learner (VoL)
Let us go through each of them briefly.
Personalized learning helping in L&D entry
Machine learning and Artificial Intelligence power one-third of the e-learning courses taken up by the employees. The question to ponder upon would be how to get employees to do more development independently. Despite the learning technology working on it to find the answer, not much help has been sought so far. However, for hard-workers, the barrier for entry remains high. They may not have the time or the energy to go through a large catalog of courses suitable to meet their skills and interests. You would require a different motivation to make the employees take up learning.
With various motivations implemented in several learning platforms, personalized learning provides relevant courses to more learners.
Peers and coworkers would create learning content for soft skill development at organizations in the coming times. You may be aware of the widening skills gap. However, it may not entail hard skills like welding or coding that the employees lack. It would be pertinent to mention here that a majority of in-demand skills that companies look forward to creating were persuasion and analytical reasoning.
To develop important soft skills, the workers rely on their peers. However, the only problem in such learning would be informal, infrequent, and something that cannot be repurposed or scaled. Learning platforms could assist by providing workers templates and tools for transforming their knowledge into organizational E-learning. The employee in the could quickly create a course or a video and share it on the learning platform.
Such platforms enable employees to demonstrate their learning and send it to the SMEs (subject matter experts) in their company. They would let them assess the progress of the employee. The employees could make use of SME feedback for further growth.
Voice of the Learner (VoL)
Several companies would launch the voice of the learner (VoL) initiatives in the future for analyzing and capturing all forms of learner feedback. You should have a specific percentage of employees that largely satisfy the work experiences, the employee experience, along with huge priorities in the coming time. However, to enhance your business, the organizations would require data.
The LMS or the Learning Management System data would provide basics of the learner experience. It would be inclusive of aspects such as course ratings, completion rates, and assessment scores.
