How the eLearning Space has Changed Last Year
eLearning has enabled individuals all around the world to broaden their collective knowledge and contribute in novel ways to keep the world running.
Fremont, CA: The previous year's events have irrevocably altered the eLearning landscape. The COVID-19 pandemic has compelled most companies and institutions throughout the world to use some remote initiative in order to keep learners engaged and corporate operations running while ensuring their safety and wellness. To summarise, eLearning has allowed people all around the world to extend their collective knowledge while also contributing in creative ways to keep the world functioning.
During this period of adaptation and innovation, new tactics and tools have arisen to assist teams in achieving success during difficult times and positioning themselves for future success. Here are some of the most recent eLearning trends.
• Open-Source Technologies
Open-source technology has also grown in popularity, particularly during the epidemic. Open-source platforms, which have a publicly available codebase, enable organizations and people who would otherwise be limited by cost to quickly set up an online learning platform in order to continue supporting their learners despite disruptions to traditional models. Open-source systems also enable rapid, community-based development that can keep up with the times.
• Accessibility is Essential
Instructors frequently prioritize accessibility to ensure that all learners have equal opportunities to consume instructional materials. However, accessibility becomes even more important when it comes to eLearning because instructional materials must now be easily accessible and uniform across all audiences.
• Creativity with Content Types
As many corporations and universities quickly moved their course contents online, many kept their learning programs as close to in-person courses as possible, leveraging video conferencing software and other technology to deliver lessons. In addition, instructors may now be more versatile with how the material is delivered to learners since they have more expertise in developing online courses. To keep students interested, flexible teaching in the form of hybrid learning and flipped classrooms has grown more popular, as has to provide learners with microlearning, gamification, mobile alternatives, and more.
