And with good reason; the possibilities they pose for learning and training are endless. But these technologies are only in their infancy, and they are sure to shift and evolve over the next few years. As such, if you want to understand the opportunities for learning and education that are emerging from these technologies, you need to follow their evolution in the consumer landscape.
