Today I want to talk about digital learning and how it has grown so much over the past three years! The pandemic definitely gave it a boost, so let’s look more into it.
Let’s start with a definition of digital learning.
Digital learning is a method based on the use of new digital tools to enable learners to learn in a different way, whether it be face-to-face, distance learning, or blended learning. It has different methods, which we will see next.
Digital Learning Methods:
Virtual classroom. Virtual classes allow trainers and learners to be brought together in the same virtual place, for example during a video conference.
Serious games. Organized in various forms, they enable know-how to be learned in a fun and sometimes collective way.
The MOOC (Massive Open Online Course). The best-known teaching method is based on the use of a platform for training through videos, downloadable documents, quizzes, etc.
SPOC (Small Private Online Course). Similar to the MOOC, this interactive training course has the particularity of being aimed at a smaller group of learners, which encourages interactivity with the trainer and ensures that learners are followed up.
Mobile Learning. It involves training from your smartphone. A practice particularly suited to the “anytime, anywhere, anyplace” learning experience.
Social Learning. Based on the exchange and sharing of experience within a group, this more informal and collaborative learning method is also used in a complementary way in the context of hybrid or face-to-face training.
Adaptive Learning. This concept refers to the ultra-customization of certain training courses to adapt to the needs of each learner (specific modules and workshops, adapted training courses, etc.).
I don’t think there is anyone out there who hasn’t been involved with at least one of the digital learning methods. What is your experience with them? Let me know in the comments and don’t forget to subscribe!
