3496890_origAccording to moodlenews the future of online learning and the LMS in particular looks promising! That’s good because it’s a big part of what I do for a living!!

As we move forward what further developments can we expect to see in e-learning?

  • VR and AR – virtual and augmented reality. remember those words because they will be HUGE factors in the years to come. Most people learn best by seeing and doing so VR and AR will provide real-world scenarios.
  • Increased Personalization – no more “one-size-fits-all.” Better for the non traditional learner, like many of us.
  • More Gaming to engage the millennials
  • More feedback to learners and collecting data to help personalize even more.
  • ROBOTS?  The jury is out here but stay tuned…
