Information and knowledge on everything is increasing every day. On an average people learn things dedicating 2-3 hours per day. With the advancement of technology, now the learning methods have abruptly shifted to the new methods of learning, i.e e-Learning. The e-learning technology is a learning conducted via electronic media, typically on the internet.
There is no denying to the power of e-Learning nowadays, where electronic devices like computers, laptops, mobile phones etc. are in great trend for learning. Predicting trends can be really a difficult task as one has to find the likes and dislikes of the majority. Let’s have a look at few e-Learning trends that can be a great hit and can make learning attractive, easy and interesting.
(i) Virtual Reality (VR) & Augmented Reality (AR):
The Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are the most attractive method of learning currently. VR creates a simulated environment for learning, whereas AR adds computer-generated information for the viewer to understand the concept. With these technologies, one can easily understand the 3-dimensional concepts such as Vectors, more deeply by creating an environment that enhances student’s imagination and encourages their learning.
(ii) Personalized/Adaptive Learning Tool:
Personalized learning tool refers to a tool that helps in the development and career building of an individual. A topic can be difficult for one person, while it may be like a cakewalk for another, thus everyone’s potential is different from other. Providing a personal tool for learning for an individual can be helpful for them, as one can study at their own pace or speed, investing sufficient time for the topic which they find difficult and less time for a topic which they feel confident. This will create a unique opportunity for learners to adapt education to their specific goals.
The use of games in e-Learning is greatly interesting. As everyone loves to play, therefore including games along with learning can be greatly effective in attracting people to learn by this method. It has proved to be user engaging and helpful in retaining information for a prolonged duration. Even the most boring concepts can seem to be interesting if taught in a playful manner, thus gamification is one of the most trending tool available in e-learning.
(iv) Video-Based Learning:
Video learning has provided users to understand concepts in an easy manner. Our mind responds attentively more to the videos as compared to the texts written in a book. Such as understanding the concept behind the true value of pi through video lecture can be an easy task rather than reading from the textbook. This makes our learning method easy and more effective.
All these e-Learning trends seem to be really helpful to drive the users towards learning in a productive way.
