Teachers don’t want more sit-and-get PD. They want focused, concise strategies and structures, immediate feedback, and a collaborative network of peers.
Learning managers are interested in one thing – training their employees in the most effective way possible. But no matter how much they stress the importance of employee training, the finance department will always come back with the same question: "How much does eLearning cost?"
As technology evolves and increasingly digital-savvy generations move up in the workplace, questions dominate the executive education space. How should executive education be changing to meet the needs of digital generations? What’s the value of a microcredential versus an MBA? Is the more traditional, face-to-face model being threatened by alternate offerings?
An emerging market you may not know about is e-learning. It is set to boom to $275.10 billion by 2022. Forbes recently launched Learn@Forbes, an e-learning platform, which clearly shows the demand in this space. If you are in an industry where you can sell your product or service online as an e-learning course, then you should start researching this business model now. Or, if you want to start an e-learning business where you can provide courses such as how-tos, health and wellness coaching, fitness training, business coaching, etc., this is the time to jump in.
Modern workers are expected to be ready to adapt and evolve as the environment around them and their work change. Many of those changes are driven by information technology, which with its prospect of instant access to virtually limitless information, is regarded as a quick and easy enabler of enhanced performance. But then we need to include compliance in the picture. We expect employees not only to work better, we expect them to work compliantly too. Is it any wonder the modern worker reports feeling overwhelmed and stressed? And is that not becoming a compliance issue too?
