For small businesses, this represents a huge opportunity, both for those interested in using e-learning to teach their teams or employees new things and for those interested in creating e-Learning content for other clients.
It’s not difficult to see why e-Learning has gained wide acceptance and popularity in a rather short span of time. By making learning and tutoring available 24/7 and at a pace suitable to different learners, it has made learning easy. It’s therefore not a surprise that 90 percent of students think online learning is the same or better than traditional classroom experience.
Today, online learning is the new normal and corporations have increased their use of e-learning a whopping 900 percent in the last 16 years.
Online learning owes much of its success to the popularity of mobile and video. Take mobile for instance. Sixty-seven percent of people now use mobile devices to access learning.
Video, too, is a popular tool for learners. It is expected to be responsible for 80 percent of the internet traffic in the world by 2019.
Various platforms specializing in different types of learnings are available today to those interested. Udemyhas the largest catalog of pre-recorded online courses whereas Zeqr provides live 1 on 1 classes.
For software, creative and business pre-recorded classes, Lynda.com is a popular platform.
