Technology and the Future of Online Learning - Ruth Reynard, Campus Technology

What are the latest technologies to impact the evolution of online learning? According to, there were "5 Amazing eLearning Trends in 2016": Mobile Learning; Gamification; Video-Based Training; Competency-Based Learning; and Big Data. I would suggest that these were not trends specific to 2016, as they were emerging through the years along with the technology changes and developments I've briefly outlined. What has taken place more recently, however, is a clearer impact on learning and specifically the delivery, organization, presentation and engagement/interaction involved in the learning process. I would agree, though, that gamification and big data have emerged more strongly as critical aspects of full engagement with and application of learning — they are the product of new knowledge and information scope.
