Top Trends in eLearning for 2024

Delaney Caulfield

As we near the halfway point of the year, it seems the perfect time to reflect on the trends that we're seeing in eLearning thus far.

Here's what we discovered:

Artificial Intelligence

Love it or hate it, AI appears to be here to stay. The technology has the potential to completely change the way we learn by providing personalized learning experiences and 'intelligent' feedback. Let's just hope that feedback refrains from suggesting you eat rocks for breakfast (a la Google's regenerative AI).

Personalized learning

Each person learns differently, so it makes sense that the training programs we use should reflect that. Having personalized learning paths offers an opportunity to tailor content to an individual's unique needs, learning styles, and goals.

Mobile learning

With your smartphone, you can access a bounty of information from just about anywhere in the world. It's natural that learners want their learning to be flexible to fit their needs and convenient enough to do on the go. This makes the rise of microlearning, and the delivery of bite-sized learning modules, even more accessible to learners, especially those with shorter attention spans.



Who doesn't love an unexpected element of game play in the middle of their training course? It breaks up the content screens, encourages engagement, and can motivate learners to use their critical thinking skills. It can also boost the production of serotonin and dopamine, connecting positive feelings to the eLearning experience. Gamification is evolving to include so much more than leaderboards and stars; today's courses are increasingly being built to include interactive simulations that use real-life scenarios where learners apply their knowledge and skills in a practical way.

Inclusive training

Designing eLearning content from an inclusive point of view ensures that it will be accessible for all types of learners. Here at BaseCorp, inclusivity has always been a priority for the learning resources we create - we not only want to ensure that everyone who takes our courses sees themselves reflected in them, but that they can also fully experience the range of features we build into every custom eLearning experience.  Our Learning Resource Development team have been exceeding accessibility standards for years and, as more and more workplaces make this a requirement, we can only hope it is a trend that continues to spread.
