Looking ahead this year, business owners worldwide are definitely in board rooms steering up plans designed to ensure they have a successful 2014, and the world of online education is no different. The industry has a projected monetary growth of approximately 10 percent between 2012 and 2015, so educators and education startups should take notice of this year’s projected learning trends and leverage them for positive growth professionally and financially.
Learning on the go
As more and more professional educators and even students experience the “long nights, shorter days” phenomenon, the need to immediately assimilate information is definitely going to be a huge factor in how we learn. Therefore, students and employees will seek instant gratification when it comes to studying for a test or professional certification. To meet their needs, educators must design tutorials or teaching materials that are mobile friendly and can be downloaded on tablets, phones, and the variety of smart devices available on the market.
