1. Learnnovators: What according to you is the future of e-learning? How do you look at the interesting shifts happening in learning paradigms (such as social learning, flipped classroom, Bring-Your-Own-Device, etc.) fuelled by the enormous possibilities thrown open by emerging technologies?
Pooja: The future of e-learning lies in adopting the technological advancements and using them judiciously to improve learning. The focus is now more on learners and how they learn. And any technological development that supports it will be the future of e-learning. Concepts like Flipped Classrooms, MOOCs, and BYOD have completely disrupted the way people learn. You can see an evident shift from formal curriculum-based learning to informal just-in-time learning, and this is just the beginning!
2. Learnnovators: What do you think is the future of rapid e-learning authoring tools? Where do you think the industry is moving?
Pooja: The future of e-learning authoring tools is to fit the category of ‘simple yet powerful’. Easy enough to begin with, and at the same time having the depth, so that authors are not limited by the tool. I see the future e-learning tools allowing the authors to easily add complex interactions, games, and 2D/ 3D animations with absolutely no programming.
