For those of us who are involved in the elearning industry on a daily basis, we know how great it can be. The new technology, strategies, and tools that pop-up constantly always have us busy.
In fact, talk to anyone who is actively engaged in the learning industry, and more often than not they are very excited about their work.
For those who are just starting out (or perhaps just curious) – you may be wondering what makes elearning so awesome…
Well, luckily there is an infographic to lay it all out for you 🙂 !
Originally created by Tim Tamimi from Mango Graphics, this infographic presents five pretty awesome reasons why elearning is so great. Some of these you may be familiar with already, but perhaps there is a fact that you did not know.
Bottom line, elearning is growing on what appears to be a monthly basis. It has become pretty common to see television commercials advertising some of the larger online learning programs (Lynda.com comes to mind). The young professionals of today grew up with elearning – it was part of their grade school curriculum. It’s old news!
While I anticipate some of the aspects of elearning detailed below to still be true five years from now, I am willing to bet that the bigger story will be around mobile learning and its accessibility (and affordability). Today’s major MOOCs will likely grow by leaps and bounds by then, and probably only have a couple major players.
Elearning is pretty awesome, and it’s growing at an “awesome” rate.
