According to Learning and Development (L&D) experts, the major trends in eLearning this year were (in no particular order):That’s quite the list! Wondering how you are ever going to be able to incorporate all these “trends” and keep your training cutting edge? Well, if you’ve read any of my other articles on eLearning/L&D trends you already know that I loathe that word because it implies that a) it’s new, which isn’t always the case, and b) that for a learning program to be successful it needs to be adopted. Trend articles can fool you into thinking that learners will only participate in training or give it a thumbs up if it incorporates these trends, but that simply isn’t the case.Let me be clear, I’m not saying that these L&D approaches shouldn’t be considered (in fact, it’s exciting to see the industry evolve), rather, there are other factors such as learner need, time invested and budget (i.e., what was determined during your training needs analysis) that need to be considered before you think about the likes of virtual reality or artificial intelligence. Let’s take a look at some design approaches that you can use to enhance your eLearning based on your training need.
