The learning landscape has shifted and as Trinidad and Tobago, along with other countries in the Caribbean, make the transition to the digital economy, so must the learning landscape of these countries.
In previous decades, when an organization needed to train its employees or customers, it meant booking a conference room and coordinating travel, accommodation and meals for many persons. Scheduling could be a difficult and time-consuming task. And invariably, some persons were not available to attend, leaving them with an important knowledge gap and no really good way to close it.
Fast forward to the 21st Century and the year 2020. Learning has never been more accessible to more persons than it is now. The reach of eLearning today is greater than ever with the most rapid growth happening in emerging economies, trying to close the education gap. The combination of low on-going costs, high convenience, and accessibility are transforming eLearning into the predominant global educating force of the 21st century.
The Modern Learner
The Modern Learner expects to be able to access information when and where they need it. With widespread access to the internet and the use of Smartphones, training and education are now available in anyone’s hands, regardless of their geographic location or their socio-economic status. And to be successful, the Modern Workplace needs it’s employees to engage in life-long-learning – the fact that training can be made available through an internet portal, makes the pursuit of continuous education more convenient and accessible than going to a traditional school/physical location.
