As I was writing back in January, EI Design stays loyal to researching and providing us with its list of eLearning trends and predictions for this year. The first edition of their eBook was like gazing at the future through the looking glass of experience: truly insightful; it could surely give you a head start on this annual struggle inside an ever-changing industry. eLearning Trends And Predictions For 2018 is helpfully divided into three sections—stating opinions on continuing trends, already big ones or those steadily emerging, and presenting the readers with practices and tools to keep their eyes on.
