When it comes to professional development and continuing education, many companies are often reluctant to invest, especially in industries where continuing education isn’t a requirement.
If you’ve ever tried to learn a new musical instrument or language, you likely did so in small, repetitive and incremental steps, making learning complicated subjects or skills possible.
And it’s that exact approach to learning that makes microlearning’s popularity easy to understand: It’s an incredibly effective way of learning, retaining, and applying new knowledge, skills or information through repetition.
This approach to learning, compounded by the way we’ve grown accustomed to receiving information on mobile devices through digital channels such as social media which deliver short snippets of content, has propelled microlearning to the forefront of eLearning.
As 2017 comes to a close, all eyes turn to the eLearning landscape of 2018. It should come as no surprise that the industry is predicted to grow. But how much exactly?
According to Research and Markets, the global eLearning market is poised to grow at a CAGR of around 7.2% over the next decade to reach approximately $325 billion by 2025.
Here, in no particular order, are the top 10 eLearning predictions to watch for in 2018.
Your learning program must change. Innovation and personalization are ushering in a new era of how we learn and what learners expect. A multi-faceted approach is needed to stay modern, relevant and have a measurable impact on performance.

Reflecting on the Vector Solutions annual client summit, it’s easy to recall the handshakes and smiles exchanged in between breakout sessions or the introductions between clients from more than 30 states. But, for me, the three-day event brought to life so much more than just another way to connect. The inaugural occasion saw industry experts from a wide variety of backgrounds join to exchange ideas around the next generation of learning and performance strategy.
