In Course Camera Tracking for Delivery and Assessment of Courses

Multi Award Winning firm Urban E Learning has recently establish a new technology framework that will revolutionise the way RTO’s and University’s deliver their programs moving forward.

Their application is set to change the training and delivery for education globally and also areas such as Pschycometric Testing and identification validation where much is done online.

The previous concerns of Fraud raised consistently about online delivery and assessment means that this new solution is even more secure than any other framework.

For Companies like Hogan Assessments the question is still about “Who is really doing the test?”  This new framework eliminates the risk and maintains the integrity of the testing process.

With E-learning  back with a vengeance it illustrates what I that we are finally on the verge of creating a globally standard approach to Education in every forum.

The brick-and-mortar universities are dead and virtual universities were going to take over in the next 12 months.

The concepts are simple.  Companies and individuals are freed from the cost and time of travel which costs Millions of dollars when we could learn online, in a social media rich environment all in the comfort form our own home.

Education can new be done virtually, fraud proofed and convenient with even live instruction done online.

E-learning received a huge boost during the recession of 2000-01. Companies trimmed learning budgets significantly, which fueled the market for learning management systems, online content and content development tools.

In the ensuing decade, we all learned a lot. First, we learned that online learning as defined in those years was not enough. At first, people enjoyed the page-turning, somewhat slow flash-based content at first, but it got boring fast. Soon people realized e-learning should be blended with other educational experiences, leading to a decade of work in blended learning development.

Several important changes took place. First, the Internet got faster, and we all got Web browsers on our computers, so media like video and audio was easy to publish. In the early days, video was nonexistent, and we used flash-based animations to mimic it. Second, we all got smartphones, opening the door to pure video devices. Third, tools like Google and Twitter made it easy to find small pieces of content, and we didn’t need to build multi-hour courses to teach things.

The Internet shifted from a platform for content to a platform for people. Social networking turned the Internet into a medium for individual self-expression, letting subject-matter experts — or students — post their ideas, ask and answer questions and self-publish whatever they felt was interesting.

The $130 billion corporate training market continues to grow, and companies are still experimenting with content. Since the 2008 recession, we have seen a proliferation of exciting e-learning companies. We now have disruptive companies coming to market. For instance, massive open online course providers such as Urban University are redefining what university education means. Companies such as Urban Global now offer high-fidelity e-learning for technical training, creative professionals, leadership and soft skills. Companies are embracing these solutions as fast as they can.

In the first era of e-learning, content was hard to complete and didn’t offer much interactivity. Today, we can watch an expert, jump from topic to topic, interact with the teacher, and submit real exercises and exams for evaluation online. Most community colleges and universities offer accredited courses online, and my personal experience shows they work extremely well.

What does this all mean to us in corporate training? E-learning is back with a vengeance. Digital learning today is more exciting, dynamic and relevant than ever. Video, social experiences, gaming and online accreditation are all common.

And this time, e-learning really works. Our research shows that most large companies today are in the middle of a digital renaissance; they desperately need to re-engineer their employee learning experiences to accommodate this new, refreshing, exciting market.

You should take e-learning seriously. It will disrupt many of the systems you have. It will force you to shift to learning experience design. It will put stress on your learning management system and infrastructure.

Welcome to 2016 and the future of Learning.
