What to Expect From the Future of E-Learning

World Continuing Education Alliance (06/03/21)

The World Continuing Education Alliance says the COVID-19 pandemic has added to e-learning's momentum, with personalized learning experiences one of its key benefits. Gamificationwhich uses elements of game design to educate and motivateis also gaining credibility. Studies indicate this format can improve learners' skill retention as much as 40%. A third e-learning practice, microlearning, deconstructs complicated topics into smaller fragments to ease comprehension and recall and it enables employees to learn on the go and incorporate small tasks into their daily routines. E-learning has also had an impact on collaborative learning, with digitalization connecting learners to exchange insights and ideas. Artificial intelligence (AI) is poised to become the next major e-learning trend, with universities testing AI teaching assistants to answer simple questions and undertake simple tasks. AI also can tailor the learning experiences to augment engagement. Mobile learning also holds potential, while traction for augmented and virtual reality (VR) technology is building. Potential applications might include surgeons training with cellphone-powered VR headsets and virtual classrooms where students engage with teachers remotely.
