The Future of Learning – Online Business Academy
We are facing a change in learning, no doubt – quality, methodology and technology are crucial success factors.
Development of new technologies
What is the future of learning? Is online learning just a trend or is this form the breakthrough for a whole new way of learning.
One thing is clear: learning has to become more efficient. Information must be found quickly. The neural network of the brain is faster, and evolving, which means that interactive information, reached quickly, definitely make learning easier;
But what about 3D glasses? Interactive, entertaining animations in a virtual space? Is this supposed to be the future of learning. Microsoft has already made a hardware-technical milestone with the Microsoft “Hololens”. Take a look at the already uploaded videos on this topic. How to repair various devices, e.g. Home appliances or repairs to your own car. Emerging physicians can perform simulated operations; Even restaurants could offer their own 3D virtual rooms, so you can sit on different beaches at any time using all ready made and on the market technology.
You have to do it. At this point, nothing will change – even if you simulate the activities.
At any rate, experts predict a radical change in learning. “Adaptive Learning” is one of the new keywords: with this technology, the online learner is analyzed by means of a software with its strengths and weaknesses, the software recognizes concentration problems and recognizes when you specifically need a break and when not. Do you rather learn auditory or visual?
Do not worry, the software will tell you. A problem that arises at this point is to create a qualitative content. This involves a very large investment in resources – who wants to take this risk, if not even European countries can pick up for a central high-quality production site of online content. This requires the combination of know-how (= the cognitive knowledge), the knowledge of which techniques of online knowledge transfer are available, including tools (animations are probably the most elaborate part, including three-dimensional worlds) and possibly programmers.
Webinars – the new virtual classrooms will be used more and more in the future. Lectures in universities are broadcasting worldwide. The added value of Contents are the certificates or the graduations – the content will sooner or later be offered almost free of charge.
