How technology will be key to reskilling the nation beyond COVID-19

Ed App

Recently, our CEO contributed a piece to The Australian addressing what role technology has in helping to rebuild skills after COVID-19. The pandemic has undoubtedly contributed to widespread consequences, and the article addresses what it means for Australians and particularly how technology can help rebuild the economic challenges that COVID-19 created. Much like the COVIDSafe app, I think technology will once again come to the rescue, but not in the way that we may expect.

2016 eLearning Hype Curve Predictions

Web Courseworks

This year, we are placing our annual (and very popular) learning technology predictions on the the hype cycle. Online learning lags behind other industries in adopting new technologies.
