Panel Discussion: How eLearning Businesses can Optimize Learner Journeys

Duration - 60 minutes

Key Takeaways

  • Embrace a digital-first mindset: The quality and accessibility of online learning have improved significantly, making it a viable alternative to traditional face-to-face education. It's important to consider digital options first and then evaluate if face-to-face interaction is necessary.
  • Recognize the value of blended learning: Blended learning, which combines online and face-to-face instruction, is not just a compromise but can often provide a superior learning experience. It offers the best of both worlds and should be considered as a primary approach.
  • Be rigorous and focused on effectiveness: Avoid jumping on the bandwagon of what's trendy in e-learning. Instead, focus on what's effective and what best meets the learning needs. This requires being rigorous in designing and promoting e-learning experiences.
  • Leverage technology to implement proven learning theories: Use technology to implement learning theories that have been proven to work, such as combating the forgetting curve with reminders or achieving personalization at scale through adaptive learning.
  • Prepare for growth in e-learning: The future of e-learning is promising, with expected growth and multiplication. However, it's important to stay focused on providing quality and effective learning experiences, rather than just riding the wave of popularity.

Summary of the session

The webinar, led by industry experts including Brian DeKemper, Head of University Partnerships at Springboard and Giuseppe Auricchio, Executive Director at IESE explores the paradigm shift in e-learning and higher education. The speakers discuss the evolution from traditional face-to-face learning to a digital-first approach, emphasizing that online learning is now seen as a viable, and sometimes preferable, alternative. They argue that blended learning, combining online and face-to-face methods, is superior to purely face-to-face education.

The future of e-learning, they suggest, lies in rigorous, effective design and the application of proven learning theories, enabled by technology. The webinar concludes with a Q&A session, inviting further engagement with the panelists.

Top questions asked by the audience

  • With on-demand and more relevant courses, many degrees, do you think there will be demand for traditional universities? India has about a thousand universities, approximately, of which probably 85% are not even relevant.

    - by Skanda
    I think it's an "and," not an "or." And it also depends on economic factors and the financial climate as well. Not all schools in the way that they've lived in the past will survive moving forward. S ...ome will adapt, some will change, some will merge, whatever may be. But in a lot of cases, what we do at SpringBoard to help facilitate experiential learning, career readiness, those sorts of things in very advanced fields, isn't meant to be, in every case, a replacement for higher education in its traditional form from a degree perspective. So I think the way I would respond to that is there will be a lot of winners and losers. There will obviously be schools that have enrollment struggles because they may not be able to fulfill a value promise or the right kind of outcomes, but there are a lot of schools that do. And there are a lot of schools that will embrace different kinds of learning methodologies. And the good news is there's a ton of people through a continuum of their life and their career of what they are asking for, what they're ready for, and what they need to serve each one of those kinds of opportunities on the supply side. So it's definitely not the end of higher education, for sure. It's one of those things where the model is gonna continue to evolve, for sure.
