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

As 2020 draws to a close, e-learning remains integral to the success of organizations around the world. It has become increasingly clear that the future of education is digital, and several e-learning avenues are leading the learning movement for 2021. By employing flexible digital learning solutions, organizations can pivot to meet unexpected challenges as they arise.

Ubiquitous Learning

Ubiquitous learning refers to learning that can take place anytime and anywhere due to mobile computing devices, including laptops, tablets, smartphones, etc. …

Ubiquitous Learning, or u-learning, offers students the opportunity to experience a high-quality digital education where they want and when they want. New developments in technology and educational methods create challenging and inspiring learning opportunities. Internet access is the key to this dynamic learning method.

In recent years, learning has evolved to e-learning and then the even more accessible u-learning. Education has shed many of its limitations and made it easy for people around the world to be lifelong learners.

What is U-Learning?

U-learning is not just another way of saying “e-learning.” E-learning is a broad term that applies to all…

E-learning platforms have become a mainstay training and development tool with a vast body of data available within a swipe or tap. Mobile applications and the IoT makes it possible for learners to access educational materials on the move and without conventional physical restrictions. B2B and B2C training companies continue to change and improve the digital learning environment — contributing to more interactive user experiences with improved retention rates.

B2B Outcome-driven Modules

B2B industries face a shortage of specialized staff in tackling the unique challenges in the industry. Companies can provide workers with a dynamic outcome-driven B2B e-course to prepare them for current…

Here’s Why Visual Design is Important for Effective E-Learning

Motivation is crucial for learners who intend to achieve their lifelong learning goals. At its very core, learning requires quality content, but certain elements need to be considered in ensuring that learners are engaged throughout a course.

According to the principle of motivational learning, there are four steps needed in sustaining motivation during the learning process. The first element required to motivate the learner is attention. To fully capture the attention of a learner, whether it be in traditional learning or in the digital platform, great visual design is necessary.

Visual design makes a vast difference in capturing the learners’…
