eLearning Trends for 2015: Here to Stay or Go Away?

Association eLearning

Below is a list of eLearning trends we expect to see in 2015. Trends in eLearning come and go, but a good LMS is forever. Ok maybe not forever, but a provider can dream. Will they last or fade away? Only time will tell. MOOCs. Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are definitely trending in eLearning. These are online courses offered to the masses, often for free. Why, you ask, would an association want to create a MOOC? Exposure.

eLearning Predictions 2015

Web Courseworks

In 2015, we believe experimentation with analytics-driven performance improvement will lead to more “intelligent recommendations” and personalized professional development in Continuing Medical Education and beyond.

Origin Learning

2015 will only make it better – as learning departments find a way to circumvent or solve the existing challenges posed by it.
