There will be an evolving shift from just accessing information, to accessing tools to using technology on the go to actually learn. Whoever you are, whatever you want to learn, study or revise, there are now tools to be able to learn anything from study and revision tools to large MOOCs to online tutors, all available immediately.
Shelley Osborne, VP Learning, Udemy: “There’s definitely been a significant shift to learners learning on their mobile devices. They’re truly on the go. A lot of our learners are doing it on the commute, on the train into work or on the bus — in that five-minute span. These are behaviors that match what we see in other digital spaces in terms of entertainment consumption, but it’s a new thing in the education space.”
Over time, though, the devices have grown more streamlined. The latest models are portable and rechargeable, like a phone.
“You’re seeing these devices become smaller, faster, better,” Provenzano said.
