Learning Resolutions: Make it Instant, Personal and Difficult

There are three things that I want to see evolve in elearning over the course of 2013:

  1. Personalization by the Learner (ability to drive sequence, modality and collaboration)
  2. Increased Rigor/Difficulty in Assessment (let the learner “fail” more on the way to success)
  3. Access to Real-Time Expertise (video chat with peers or teachers embedded in elearning)

Editor’s note: 

When asked for his learning resolutions for 2013, the incomparable Elliott Masie shared resolutions for the entire learning & development community – outlining not just what he will do, but a framework for where we should all push our practice in the next year. What do you think? Has he identified the right priorities for 2013? 

Elliott Masie is an internationally recognized futurist, analyst, researcher and organizer on the critical topics of workforce learning, business collaboration and emerging technologies. He is an author, editor and the convener of Learning 2012. He heads The MASIE Center, a Saratoga Springs, NY think tank focused on how organizations can support learning and knowledge within the workforce.
