The future has entered our homes. Time has expanded, it has acquired a new speed of its own, and it is not possible to distinguish present or future in such a clear way as before. Many previously unthinkable things have become commonplace, with impressive speed, and much is to be expected, with the same speed, in the near future.
If we analyze the directions and trends of e-learning for 2019 we can easily understand how the learning required of people will progressively increase over time, both in a qualitative and quantitative sense, to deal with a reality that is gradually more complex, but also always closer to our daily life.
Learning is no longer a possibility but a necessity.
Already today the training is continuous and never ending. It is essential for people to have the flexibility to learn anytime, anywhere and on the device of their preference and familiarity. The technological world is growing rapidly, and this requires people to have similar growth in order to align our understandings of the world we live with and the actions it requires of us.
Constant development of Artificial Intelligence.
"In many ways," says Ryan Tracey, "the future is already here." There are many robots used in the health sector where they conduct detailed interviews with patients on the details of their health and can reconstruct adequate medical histories and offer indications on what needs to be undertaken. Others are able to call a taxi, find a hotel and check in for a flight. Cars are able to drive us anywhere without a man driving, and with results that are better and safer than human driving. The current world and the near future, already mixed together, will be a world of objects in continuous dialogue with people, in continuous connection, with the direct availability of information, and the same objects at our disposal will be able to perform actions previously reserved for people, making life and learning ever easier.
The use of videos, images, audio in didactic instruments.
E-learning had no difficulty in making this tool its own in its methodology, since it allows the construction of a teaching material of great impact, of great wealth and perfectly suitable for an audience by now addicted to video communication.
There are many experts who highlight the importance of the transition from classic educational eLearning to the use of interactive videos, and emphasize the effectiveness of a visual educational product.
No wonder, therefore, to see how this communication system, in its richness, has become an increasingly important part of communication and teaching and learning techniques.
Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality.
These are the central watchwords of today's e-learning, and they can lead the learner into a tangible and realistic learning experience of extraordinary effectiveness. Through these tools it is possible to simulate complex environments and carefully evaluate the conditions of predictable phenomena before they occur in reality. For example, it is possible with these tools to simulate the environment of a real house and evaluate in a preventive way all the effects that a flood, fire or earthquake could produce.
The world is going fast, and it also forces e-learning to grow fast in this 2019
