- Josh Bersin told SHRM where he thinks things are headed in terms of corporate learning. The core points: Organizations are spending close to $4.5 biillion on LMS alone, and that the learning video market is "on fire."
- Bersin notes that now we are shifting from relying on LMS to a more on-demand, micro-learning environment best delivered by video content. Employees have the opportunity to author content, recommend learning content to others, and build entire learning paths suited for each job type. Social tools provide a learner community which encourages participation.
- In order to create a more prepared and satisfied workforce, Bersin advises companies to explore micro-learning vendors to enable employees to share and collaborate on learning materials — factors that lead to greater engagement and branding.
The modern learning organization understands that things change and will continue to change. New technology is always being developed to replace or enhance older learning management systems, and therefore it's important that company leaders stay proactive in terms of workplace training needs.
Micro-learning has been embraced by all generations of workers, and as younger people enter the job market this will only increase. Video has always been a powerful medium for this purpose, so it's a natural fit for learning at work too. Learning management systems that empower employees to share knowledge with others will transform corporate learning as we know it now.
