State of the E-Learning Industry 2017

Wer mit E-Learning-Plattformen und -Tools zu tun hat, gerne auf dem neuesten Stand ist (deswegen auch regelmäßig auf den amerikanischen Markt schielt) und schließlich auch mit der saloppen Schreibe von Craig Weiss zurechtkommt, ist hier richtig. Hier die Kategorien, auf die der Experte in seinem Blog eingeht (irgendwo dazwischen finden sich auch nützliche Listen und Hinweise auf zukünftige, weitere Beiträge):

„Any who hah, the e-learning market is made up of various segments or as I prefer spaces.  Most folks are aware of

– Rapid content authoring tools (build courses – you build them)
– LMS and subsets, LP, SEP (Sales Enablement Platforms)
– 3rd party courseware providers (ex: Skillsoft, Wiley)
– Assessment tools including Online Testing Tools (even online proctoring) (ProProfs, ClassMarker, Questionmark)
– Learning Engagement Platforms (Degreed)
– Custom course/content shops (lots of them out there)
– Web conferencing tools (aka virtual learning classrooms, webinars)

But are you aware of these?

– Coaching and Mentoring tools (mobile is a key component)
– Knowledge Reinforcement tools (mobile is essential)
– Courseware marketplaces (OpenSesame, udemy, Coursera)
– Social learning tools (not the same as a Social Learning Platform)
– Video learning tools
– Learning Record Stores
– E-Learning tools – other  (not listed in any of the categories/spaces above)“
