L&D professionals had a lot to keep up with in 2016. 2017 doesn’t look to be any different either. Staying on top of your game means you have to keep up with, or at the very least, a keen eye on the ways our industry shaping.

Yet, with the rate of change in our industry, staying on top of trends can often seem like a full time job. Yes, trends come and go and it can be all too easy to just switch off and turn a blind eye to what’s going on outside our own little comfy bubbles of doing what is always done, not to mention the constant interruption of new information, which can be over whelming and hard to digest.

But what good will it really do just to put your head in the sand and ignore what developments are being made in eLearning?

Keeping abreast, now more than ever is so incredibly important. Things do change. And staying up-to-date on industry trends allows you to be in the best possible position to made any necessary informed decisions about strategy and plans going forward. And hey – we’re not saying that you must adopt the trends and developments, just be conscious of them.
