eLearning Trends in 2021

A Strategic Guide to Help You Create a Long-term Blueprint for Your Corporate Training Programs in the New Normal

This eBook is designed as a guide that you can refer to as you firm up your L&D plans for 2021. The featured trends are contextualized for application, given the new workplace dynamics.  

The pandemic reset the workplace dynamics and we will remember the workplace as it was pre-Mar ’20 and what it will be hereafter. With employees working remotely, the demand for Virtual Training skyrocketed.

  • L&D teams pivoted quickly to offer Virtual Trainings and geared up to address the changed dynamics in the new normal.
  • Toward the second half of 2020, many L&D teams began to evaluate the impact and value of the Virtual Training Transformation they had undertaken. Many realized that “delivering training remotely or virtually” does not necessarily equal “effective remote learning” that the employees seek.
  • As the planning for 2021 commences, there is a clear need to re-evaluate the options taken and arrive at a long-term blueprint for corporate training delivery.

While a lot may have changed in the shadow of the pandemic, the need to create and execute a learning strategy that has a real impact on learner behavior and business outcomes remains unchanged. My eBook is designed to help you in this endeavor in 2021.
