When you think of the word “trend,” what images come to mind? If you went to high school in the 80s, perhaps you see visions of blue eye shadow and big hair. Or, maybe you associate the word with fashion. The truth is that trends affect every aspect of our existence, not just those that are superficial. There are trends in language, cuisine, music, art, and politics. Trends exist in nearly every industry imaginable—especially the eLearning industry—and they directly impact corporations and businesses. Because eLearning and corporate learning are often so interwoven, online learning trends shape the arena of corporate learning in particular. Some eLearning trends may be negatively affecting corporate learning, but many are making a positive impact on the way corporations train their employees.
