the Changing face of eLearning
It is a good thing for those who are busy making advanced eLearning apps for future use to know that there are more corporations interested in the implementation of that technology. Plenty of technology is undergoing development that will eventually see their application in supporting eLearning industry. There have been some new developments in the process of making them. Those trends will lead to better apps.
eLearning apps can now rely on virtual reality. Instead of using videos to guides users when you are introducing them to the app, VR technology can be used to make the learning process more enhanced and impactful. The experience shall go a long way for them.
Another trend that applies here is augmented reality. It enhances the learning environment, as opposed to replacing it with an alternate one. It is also cheaper for developers. It needs comparatively less hardware input as well.
Microlearning is also a new trend. It leads to the administration of small doses of learning material over a period of time, unlike where users are hit with too much information all at once. It entails the use of visuals, video learning, simulation, and tests that give instant results. This is the way for users to learn more and keep most of the information.
Simulations are another trend, in which there is more of how the reality feels, and less of how it is recalled. Task-based simulation leads to this outcome.
Social learning has emerged as a trend too. eLearning platforms shall manage to collaborate, via social networking, team building, and problem-solving skills at their center. The social networks in question are comment tools, chats and leaderboards.
Webinars are being used also to make topic-specific sessions, in the same vein as microlearning. They entail a high level of focus and last a short while, which is the opposite of long training program sessions that often takes weeks or months.
Serious games is a trend in which there is an aspect of entertainment to education. They take on some serious topics such as real estate, the stock market, budgeting, and the like.
In upskilling, a group that is employed in a given company can continue to receive training to make their skills better. eLearning is thus important for businesses which are looking to train their staff as they work, and get them to be promoted. Its effectiveness has encourages more HR departments to adopt it and keep using it for a long time to come. It is also great for those who wish to advance their careers.
It is always a good idea to keep the platform of an app open source. This will give consumers flexibility to make changes and advance it. These trends shall see more apps launched, that shall be more useful and effective.
