Much has been made of the coronavirus impact on Higher Education. Colleges had to adapt to a business model that didn’t allow for their core service delivery—on-campus teaching—overnight. Ironically, it was the colleges that suddenly had a learning curve. Professors with varying technical aptitudes worked quickly to pivot to an online model for teaching.
Technology has forever changed how we learn, and the modern approach to learning is continuously evolving as new innovations emerge.
Online learning was once solely associated with higher education and cyber schools. But today, it is being thoroughly redefined as businesses develop their own courses as a cornerstone of training and growth for their employees. 80% of US companies today are using eLearning and corporate eLearning has grown by more than 900% since 2001.
Education is critical to growth, and online learning beyond traditional walls is transforming business unlike ever before. The relationship between learning and work is becoming more blurred as the two become part of the same integrated ecosystem.
