The six major trends in digital learning – and how to get on board

Digital learning (e-learning, if you must) has been with us for a while now, but the direction it’s taking us hasn’t always been clear. Now, at last, figures are emerging in the fog, and we can see where this is taking us. New techniques in teaching and learning, which take full advantage of the digital possibilities, and, as with other digital economies, a focus on the learner (‘user’) rather than the teacher of the school.
As with other digital media, we’re moving away from the linear and the long-form, to the bite-size and non-linear, with images more strongly to the fore.
But is this viewpoint, from Shift, too simplistic and too in love with the idea of digital disruption? Are schools not changing as much as Silicon Valley types would like to think they are? Is this hype or reality? Have your say in the comments below.

    We at eIntern agree 100%. Not only is web-based learning finally entering the classroom, we are bringing it to the internship. Schools aren’t able to teach everything, and generally settle for theory. That leaves students on their own to figure out the job-ready skills they need for life after graduation. E-learning allows them to maintain the conventional college student schedule while still being able to complement what they learn on their own time. Wherever they want.
