E-Learning News

E-learning has opened up exciting opportunities for people all over the world, and that trend is predicted to continue. The Wiser daily e-learning news email will keep you informed of the latest trends in the industry, as well as information on the educational establishments, technologies and businesses that are involved. Since the early 2000s, e-learning has seen considerable growth. This applies across the sector from informal courses to recognized qualifications, paid and free. Many of the world's major universities have e-learning strategies, plus there are businesses and tech start-ups that offer services too. The term describes a form of distance education, or learning, that is delivered primarily through the internet. Faster internet connections and developments in cloud computing, video technology and communication have all made this possible. Plus it is an industry that is still developing. In the future mobile devices will become more important, as will solutions that involve augmented reality and gamification - the use of game-based learning rather than traditional methods. It is an interesting time for e-learning, so it is more important than ever to stay informed. The best way to do that is to sign up for the free e-learning news digest from Wiser.
