Even a decade ago, most people saw college as their only option to get advanced learning. They either went to college after high school or at some future date to get the training they wanted. Their actual career training only came after several years of basic courses. The process was long and expensive and discouraged many from pursuing more education. But things have changed.

The role of universities is rapidly evolving due to several factors. One is the need for more remote learning opportunities for people of all ages. The other is a new emphasis on lifelong learning instead of…

Learning around the globe was already becoming more digitalized before recent challenges. The pandemic sped up this evolution and has ensured that digital learning models will dominate education in the coming decades. In-person learning is not going completely away, but it is already merging with distance learning in many countries, creating a hybrid model that will ideally deliver the best of both worlds in the short term. Of course, students will also be able to complete degrees and/or learn new work skills solely through instruction coordinated through online program management (OPM). …

Lifelong learning doesn’t always take place in a classroom. It’s a lifestyle adopted by those with a passion for learning beyond the traditional stages of elementary, secondary, and post-secondary education. Lifelong learning is voluntary, self-led, and often completed at a distance via EdTech services.

Making lifelong learning a part of workplace culture is a chance to empower individuals within an organization to forge ahead in their careers or personal lives. It’s a powerful choice for CEOs who want a highly skilled and engaged workforce.

Ongoing Education with Lifelong Learning

Education never stops, of course. Adults are learning every day. Lifelong…

Worldwide, the education sector is among the biggest of all markets, with a global value of over $5 trillion USD, with that figure expected to double by 2030. When measured by revenue alone, Latin America is the fourth largest market in the field of education technology (EdTech). Yet, while these numbers are impressive, the education industry as a whole continues to see minimal technology investments. Here’s a closer examination of how EdTech is transforming eLearning in Latin America and what that means for the individuals in the industry.

The Impact of EdTech on eLearning in LatAm

During the five-year period…

Almost a fifth of the 200 rectors from the top 1000 universities believe physical lectures will be eradicated and replaced by online learning facilitated by digital technology in the next ten years. Granted, some skills cannot be taught virtually. However, there are multiple reasons why more institutions offer and more students take up online education.

The Shift Towards Lifelong Learning

Childhood development and education remain a critical determinant of prosperity and success. However, lifelong learning has become paramount in the constant flux that is the globalized marketplace. International organizations, including the United Nations, the World Bank, and the European Union, have recognized the importance of…

The tech skills gap has been hurting industries for more than a decade. Human resources might receive hundreds of resumes from people who want to fill a position. Unfortunately, hiring managers rarely find qualified applicants. The job postings sit, unfilled, for months or longer.

The essential trend towards remote work during the Covid-19 pandemic has made technological skills gaps even more problematic. With more people working from home, they have less access to experienced IT professionals who can solve their problems.

What Causes the Tech Skills Gap?

The tech skills gap largely exists because most people cannot keep up with technology’s rapid evolution. By the time…

The fourth industrial revolution, which will encapsulate the use of artificial intelligence (A.I) and the internet of things (IoT) will leave lasting changes in the world of work. As individuals adjust their preferences and expectations regarding work, so must organizations. Across the world, several occupations, particularly low-skilled employment, are decreasing in terms of the number of people employed because of changes in technologies used. In some regions, as many as three in five jobs are at risk of automation. …

The onset of the Coronavirus forced businesses worldwide to leverage the internet in a way, and to an extent, never before imagined. Remote work became the norm as did remote training, and when such training was not available, pre-made videos on specific topics via YouTube became the expected alternative.

But preventing the spread of the virus also changed how we maintained our physical health and how we managed our entertainment. With exercise gyms forced to close to keep the virus tamped down, personal trainers had to resort to Zoom calls to continue training. Professional sports teams also had to adjust…

The world has met the arrival of GPT-3 with wonder. OpenAI, the company supported by Elon Musk, recently released a “deep-learning” natural language processing application. This offering exceeds previous efforts in this area. GPT-2 contained 1.5 billion parameters, or node connections, in the AI’s “neural network.” GPT-3 contains 175 billion parameters. In simple terms, that means developers fed the program an incredible amount of internet text data. As one writer put it, all of Wikipedia’s six million English articles would be only 0.6 percent of GPT’s training. If that boggles your mind, it should. …

The scope of learning has changed dramatically. Students have to develop social skills, capabilities and the right mindset. They need a safe learning environment so they can study without anxiety or fear.

With the COVID-19 pandemic pushing forward the adoption of e-learning, having a containment process is crucial. It would be best if you addressed learners’ needs so you can create the right learning environment. Read on to understand the importance of a containment system in the learning process.

What Is a Containment System?

A containment system is a strengthened learning environment that creates a seamless e-learning experience. Learner support is crucial in the current
