This time of year usually sees a flurry of predictions about what will be big in digital learning in the coming 12 months. Let’s hypothesize … it might be some new technology or content type, or maybe it’s a new learning methodology that is going to transform the future of learning!
But one of the benefits of analysing this industry for over 20 years is that I’ve seen enough of these trends come and go (and often come back again…), that I’ve become rather sceptical of the point of these big predictions. Yes, they drive a few headlines or social ‘likes’, do they really help L&D move forward? Probably not.
So instead, I’m going to share with you what our research data is actually telling us about the year ahead.
