Staying ahead of the curve in the digital world is one of the most critical things that modern corporates worry. From learning needs and habits to learning behavior, everything is changing in the modern workplace. With the start of the year 2020, businesses need to lift their heads high and leverage technology-aided e learning solutions to get the things done. It is the beginning of a new decade that will bring ample new opportunities, latest technology, and further innovations. So, let us compile all those e-learning trends that will evolve in 2020 by boosting workplace efficiency and driving sales. So, this is how we see 2020 will transform the entire corporate training landscape for L&D departments as a whole:
1- Learner experience will matter
Consider the evolving scope of Netflix and Amazon that provide an intuitive user experience. A similar kind of experience is expected from e learning trends that cater to the pertinent training needs, preferences, habits, and other attributes. Most organizations have already stepped into utilizing modern LMS with an add-on functionality of the Learning Experience Platform. These will continue to kick off learning experience initiatives to boost engagement, knowledge retention, business performance, and overall impact.
2- Continued focus on learner analysis
To identify the real-time need-gaps will continue to be the mantra. With the successful measurement of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), organizations can easily map personalized training content as per the pertinent job roles, skills, habits, and more. Modern LMSs will continue to analyze learner data in terms of time spent on a specific course, completion rates, where learners are lacking, and more. For instance, G-Cube helps to close skills-gaps, boost retention and performance levels, and drive overall business efficiency.
3- AR & VR will evolve
The new-age learners seek for an immersive experience through Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). As per research by Capterra, one out of three small to medium-sized companies in the US will be implementing VR technology to boost employee productivity by 50%. Blending AR and VR results in an immersive experience, thereby mitigating costs for training based on scenarios that need hands-on practice.
4- Learning impact
The overall impact of training on individuals, as well as organizations, is the most critical metric for organizational success. Also, the next-generation employees demand lucrative L&D opportunities that improve their performance, bridge skills-gaps and increase overall uptake.
5- AI and learning automation
With an increasing need to upskill the modern workforce, the scope of AI and learning automation will exist in the realm of performance analysis. With AI becoming a more viable approach, modern e learning platforms enable employees to identify skills they want to apply at work. With a shift towards delivering performance-driven and ROI-inclined solutions, the year 2020 will also witness further innovations in e learning technology. The above-discussed sought-after e-learning trends will ultimately redefine the learning process and make it relevant for the new-age corporate workforce. As we all are ready to enter the new decade, there is no doubt that the 2020 trends will majorly grow and redefine the e-learning industry in the next five years and even beyond.
