Five trends and forecasts for 2012. Augmented Reality/Kinect, Social Learning, Mobile Learning, Talent Management, SaaS only systems. Plus two added bonuses: emerging market you should be exploring and online authoring systems.
2011 brought about more outstanding systems then in previous years. While there are many systems that could be slotted in for this year’s winners, from a feature standpoint, general ease of use (sans TM), and overall trend watching, these were selected.
Adobe announced on Nov. 9, that it is ditching Flash for mobile devices and instead focusing on HTML5 development. This is the right move. For HTML5 fans, vindication. For Flash fans, shock. Isn’t life great?

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.
The e-learning industry as a whole, has always been the followers and not the leaders when it comes to using technology. Now with streaming from the net to your television or tablet, we still are holding back.
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.
With the growth of mobile learning, you would expect vendors in all areas – from LMS, Web Conferencing, Content Authoring tools and others, to have an app. Yet, that isn’t the case.
Naysayers are starting to appear on why social learning is irrelevant. They see it as no value and no benefit to end users. I don’t blame them because the industry seems to be stuck in a rut. They love excuses to not to do it. Time, to end the excuses.
Several trends are emerging in the early part of 2011. While these trends vary – with most being positive, there is a trend that is negative from the consumer’s perspective. These trends cover the entire e-learning landscape.
