  7. 7. Five Trends in E-LearningBased on – Telmap project on trend forecasting – Weak signals analysis, future search conferences, expert workshops – Personal observationsCurrent and future trends, – Time horizon: immediate future (0-3 years), near future (3-5 years)Trend Summary – Mobility and globalization – Contextualization and personalization – Collaboration, social media – New devices and channels – Future technologies: internet of things, augmented reality
  8. 8. Trend 1: Higher Education, Mobility, Skills Students job market entry age decreases (less experience, less language skills) The world is not flat: more global competences needed, less opportunities due to time pressure More individual responsibility for employability and competitiveness Individual learning opportunities will increase Global competences need to be taken into account Multi-language, multi-cultural courses necessary
  9. 9. Trend 2: How we learn… Contextualized learning: in the workplace, on business trips, in social settings Personalized learning: combining tools and learning opportunities Provide add-on tools Consider scenarios of personalization (media, devices, tools & services)
  10. 10. Trend 3: Tools and Scenarios Massive amount of contents are openly available (OER) Collaborative teaching becomes popular or at least unavoidable Social software increases collaboration Consider open models – focus on consulting, tutoring and certification Utilize social networks Create alliances for teaching and learning
  11. 11. Trend 4: Devices Mobile devices have reached the critical mass of users Tablets and smart- phones as learning devices Apps as learning channels Consider mobile scenarios Utilize opportunities of new input possibilities Broaden channels: e-books, apps, …
  12. 12. Trend 5: Future technologies Internet of things: smart objects → teaching objects Location based services: learning all over with fellow learners Augmented reality: embedding reality and learning services Tele-presence: new conferencing and tutoring Consider further personalization and location based services Prepare for new tutoring tools
  13. 13. Summary We need to prepare the next generation of learning systems Don’t wait until technologies are mature – develop didactic approaches incorporating leading edge technologies. NOW! Combine domain-competences with general competences – they don’t add up! Create strategic alliances around the globe to reach new target groups and markets
