1. Mobile learning

Mobile learning or mLearning is a great way to create highly personalized and convenient learning experiences for your learners. Many organizations today use a mobile-friendly platform for training their employees and this trend will continue to increase. This was the result of the COVID-19 pandemic as it caused many companies to rethink their L&D strategies and adopt mobile learning on a larger scale. 

Moreover, the majority of people worldwide use smartphones extensively for learning, shopping, playing games, watching Netflix, accessing applications, and a lot more. Plus with the decrease in people’s focus and attention spans, eLearning provides a much more engaging and interactive medium for learning on the go for busy learners.

2. Immersive learning

Today most learners demand better learning experiences with many companies developing game changing virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR) gadgets. Immersive learning is the solution to highly engaging and immersive learning experiences. Why? VR turns learners into a completely different world where they can deeply immerse themselves into learning into a simulated environment. AR offers great flexibility to learners as it provides much better access to relevant information and enables real-time connections with instructors and other learners.

The next level is MR which gained tremendous popularity during the pandemic and is now being interpreted as the metaverse. These experiences not only give the ability to connect the real with the virtual world but also mimic the setting where learners are incentivised to experiment and learn in a low risk and safe environment and apply the knowledge in real environments. Thus as these solutions become more affordable, we will see that they will continue to grow, impact the design of eLearning courses and be used more to augment or supplement corporate training in 2022.

3. Social Learning 

Learning doesn't have to be a solitary activity anymore. In fact social learning is the most natural and ever-green mode of learning. Social learning offers collaborative and teamwork-based learning online options such as forums, chatrooms, and file-sharing to learners and instructors. According to the 70:20:10 learning model, 90% of learning is done from observations, experiences, and interaction with others.

Moreover, when a learner does something and sees another learner get awarded for that same behavior, it increases their interest in that activity. Thus social learning can be an effective way for learners to learn fast from their peers and instructors. Social learning had also become quite useful during the pandemic and will continue to be included in the design of eLearning courses in 2022 and beyond.

4. Video-based learning

The popularity of video-based learning has risen after the pandemic and why not it holds a lot of untapped opportunities to create highly engaging learning experiences. Many organizations have started to support their training programs using eLearning tools with video-based learning used extensively. Majority of businesses today are using demo presentations and videos to help their users understand their products and services. 

Further, many users prefer watching videos compared to consuming other types of content. Video content in the form of video lectures, tutorials, demos, etc is more visually appealing, engaging, and known to have better information retention rates. Bringing videos into eLearning courses facilitates more participation and improves the learning experience immensely. Hence it can be said that video-based learning is going to be a top eLearning trend in 2022 and beyond that many organizations will use effectively for training.
