FREMONT, CA: Even the most enthusiastic educators may find it challenging to keep pace with the recent eLearning developments. However, as a brief refresher, eLearning is shifting towards more efficient and effective ways. Current digital education trends favour more engaging forms, with a heavy reliance on AR/VR and gamification to pique and maintain learners' attention.In addition, there are several surprising eLearning advancements.
For those unfamiliar with the term, eLearning refers to learning in an electronic environment and is designed to be more dynamic and instructional. It can be seen in the usage of interactive whiteboards, online classes, and other similar tools.

They believe that three categories of learners — visual, auditory, and kinesthetic - thrive best in education when confronted with videos, vocals, and practical demonstrations. Despite this paradox, auditory learners are the only population that the traditional lecture/note-taking classroom model adequately serviced for many years.However, that is no longer applicable only with the emergence of eLearning, with video learning getting increasingly common in schools worldwide.
Many pupils, regardless of age, are likely to be intimidated by the possibility of massive, multi-phase projects. However, breaking up projects, classes, and other learning materials into manageable portions has proven to be an enormous success for those kids and collaborative classrooms worldwide.Such "chunks" can take the form of video lectures, readable text, or interactive games, to name a few examples.
Instructors have discovered that lessons concerning online modules, resulting in stronger and faster memory. Hence, it is known as microlearning.

Furthermore, augmented and virtual reality help to elevate the other aspects of eLearning to new heights.Combined with augmented and virtual reality, gamification, video learning, and mobile learning have never been more immersive. The technology is developing over time, so expect to see such an eLearning trend continue for a long time.
