Mindflash Blog: Trends You May Be Overlooking in Online Training

This post was originally published on the Daily Mindflash blog. Included here is the lead and a link to full post.

The online training industry is flooded with articles and blog posts about future trends that focus on far fetched fantasies attainable only to those with discretionary budgets and/or niche needs. These trends generally include topics like gamification, the xAPI, and wearables to name a few. But for most of us, these are not practical trends we will implement any time soon.

These trends may one day be as ubiquitous as claimed, but if you are a one or a two-person training department creating and delivering training for an audience of 2,000 employees, you unlikely have the time or budget to implement a gamification strategy or figure out how Google Glass will help your field operations team.
