The technology-based learning industry has bent technology to service an archaic model of education. Today, eLearning designers and developers struggle with fewer resources and less capital, and seem to be flailing as eLearning loses its novelty. Training and development is operating in its own bubble, speaking its own language, and using its own set of tools. This session will help designers better prepare for the future and understand what skills they need to develop.

Through careful examination of the evolutionary trends, participants in this session will discover what design characteristics are consistent with the advancing technology. You'll be better equipped to design solutions that are consistent with the interests of your organization, and better equipped to have meaningful conversations about supporting employee performance. You'll hear about and see technologies rarely found in eLearning conversations, explore a new frontier of what learning systems can look like, and discover what skills you will need to be successful as the technology becomes commonplace.

In this session, you will learn:

  • A revised definition for "Learning on Demand"
  • The five key evolutionary trends of the Web
  • Key technologies that characterize the future of the Web
  • A new vision for learning systems based on emerging Web technologies
  • What skills future instructional designer will need

Intermediate designers, developers, project managers, and managers who are knowledgeable about existing technology-based learning solutions in the workplace, e.g., LMS, LCMS, CMS, etc.
