Original Article: eLearning Trends And Predictions For 2018 – eLearning Industry We are going through a phase of significant and rapid “learning transformation“. This has led to an adoption of new, immersive approaches to creating impactful learning that can lead to the required performance gain. This is not all. We also see that L&D teams are on the look-out for measures to evaluate the effectiveness of learning. This is a great article to see what the trends are for 2018 and covers a broad range of area’s. For me, I believe that xAPI and the flexibility it provides with other systems is set to be one of the big shifts in 2018. Looking at AR for example, having xAPI data feed from a AR headset into an LRS will prove beneficial to any learning platform.
