Transforming the Culture of Learning One Innovation at a Time
It’s no secret that technology is changing the way we learn. From how we consume information to the sources we access information from, today’s fast paced and digitally driven society is drastically shaping and retransforming the learning and development process.
One noteworthy trend being discussed in the realm of education today – and online education in particular – is push learning versus pull learning. As Jonathan Fear, Senior Director at Coupa University, said in an interview with Elearning! Magazine, “Today, pull learning is more prevalent than push learning and learners want to consume just-in-time resources, learn from their peers, and leverage their social network to get to the best content quickly.”
Fear went on to explain that these trends are responsible for certain cultural shifts including:
- The rise of stand-alone learning management system (LMS) platforms.
- Emphasis on the learner experience and ease of use.
- A stronger focus on shorter, contextual learning content.
Due to rapid developments in cloud, mobile, social, and e-commerce technology, it’s not surprising that many learning management systems have flooded the market. However, it is important to remember that not all LMS vendors are made equal thus choosing the right one is crucial. We recommend opting for accredited online learning platforms, in order to receive greater educational value and assistance throughout the learning process.
