What are the eLearning and corporate learning trends in 2022?

  1. Game-based learning / Gamification: If someone handovers you a textbook and a PS, what would you choose? Obviously, PS is right! Who would compromise playing games over a book?! Not everyone engages in learning monotonous study material right? What if we bring gaming into learning? L&D managers are striving hard to teach lessons through games. Gamification allures learners into engaging in their training by showcasing it as a ‘plaything.’ Again, in the Gamification aspect, Duolingo fares far better than many eLearning applications. Be it with instant grading, animals (characters including the Owl), leaderboard, challenges and achievement, and many more.
  2. Data Analytics: Data can be collected and analyzed to determine what skills employees in particular job roles or departments would need to improve performance. Companies can also take the information they collected from employees to create the best training flow that addresses the individual’s or team’s needs. The information collected is useful in monitoring the progress of employees and can also provide guidance for the employees. And as many companies are realizing, data also helps determine what is not working. With the information collected, companies can determine the success of their learning program and make educated decisions to keep it as it is, change the program, or cut out a particular learning segment that is failing.
  3. Interactive content: 93% of marketers say interactive content is highly effective for educating customers. It also attracts 2x the engagement static content gains. By incorporating interactive pdfs, Surveys, quizzes, Interactive timelines, Infographics, and interactive data, you engage your audience better while doubling — even tripling the value you offer. This in turn helps in growing your brand loyalty, levels up your SEO game, and improves your audience engagement.
  4. Social learning: Social learning is one of the most effective ways humans learn. Social learning is a cognitive process that lets people discuss learning objectives and enables them to share their perspectives. It’s an easy way to help peers understand better by breaking down complicated points into a language that they comprehend. Social learning can be incorporated into Learning management platforms by integrating it with facilities such as Discussion forums/ Peer Networking, Live chat functionality, Social media sharing, Ask the expert column, and Badges for learners’ performance (creates a healthy competitive atmosphere and motivates to learn more).
