Change is roaring across the learning industry like a tornado through the heartland. Digital natives and advanced technologies are fueling a new learning landscape, leaving many of us wondering what is necessary and what is nice to have.
Theodore Levitt said, “People don’t want to buy a quarter-inch drill, they want a quarter-inch hole.” To this point, a learner doesn’t want content; they want knowledge, competency and skills.
“Learning ecosystem” might seem like a buzzword on the surface, but it’s an old concept that continues to advance as technology advances.
Content is sexy, it is ubiquitous, entertaining, inspiring, engaging and available in short “nuggets.” The importance of providing excellent content to learners is no longer a nice-to-have.
