Updated eLearning Trends 2020 – 18 Key Trends To Realign Remote Workforce Training Strategy In The Post Pandemic World

This eBook is designed to help you pick the right trends as you realign with a remote workforce training strategy.

Every July, we relook at the eLearning Trends and Predictions we released in January to ascertain how our analysis and recommendations panned out.

This year, the COVID-19 crisis has reset the trends leaving the HR Leaders and L&D teams to rethink the way they will manage and train the workforce. Training remote learners and driving performance gain over distance is the new reality. So, we re-examined our original list against these pressing needs of today.

  1. Even though the overall impact of the crisis is still unfolding, it has clearly redefined the workplace in the future. With an increase in work from home, it has led to a need to have an Agile and Flexible Digital Workplace. Organizations need to create a digital workplace that can easily move from 100% in office to 100% working remotely.
  2. As a result, Rapid Virtual Training Transformation needs to be undertaken to provide online training for remote learners. Face-to-face trainings must move to a predominantly Online/Self-paced/Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT)/Blended mode that can be consumed remotely.
  3. Also, a long-term plan to engage remote learners – with multi-pronged approaches to connect, reinforce, challenge, and nudge toward continuous learning must be drawn up.
