Emerging technology has the power to impact e-learning for the better. Here are four ETs that I see as potential impact players in the industry.
With the continued advanced of technology, three new trends will play a huge role in e-learning in 2013. These trends are tied to Augmented Reality, tablets and Digital textbooks. But there are two areas I am worried about – that may impact us – social learning and 3D.
E-Learning vendors, specifically content authoring tools and LMSs have failed to listen to end users when it comes time for emerging technology and its incorporation within their products. A survey conducted by E-Learning 24/7, is speaking loud and clear, so will e-learning vendors finally listen?
With the advancements in technology in the cloud, more and more people are starting to use products that at one time, were only available on their computer. Yet, when it comes to e-learning, the majority of vendors are missing the wave.
HTML5 is on its way, with stronger video/audio, multimedia capabilities far superior to Flash. What this means to e-learning, is the power to change the playing field, do more than ever before and take your learner to the next level.
