According to a survey of Chief Learning Officer Business Intelligence Board, a majority (59 percent) of CLOs say their outlook for 2018 is more optimistic than 2017, with 29 percent saying their outlook is the same and 11 percent less optimistic.


That optimism translates to an anticipated increase in cash in 2018. Only 14 percent of survey respondents expect a decrease in spending and about one-third (32 percent) say their spending will stay about the same.

Where will those increased dollars go? The highest priorities are learning strategy and content delivery, with 56 percent and 48 percent respectively saying those are either essential or high priority spending categories.

According to CLO Business Intelligence Board data, the top three areas of learning technology spending are e-learning, analytics and instructor-led delivery. Despite the emergence of powerful new technology and tools like MOOCs, video-based microlearning and AI-fueled learning apps, e-learning remains the industry’s largest technology spend.

We are all watching for learning technologies that can streamline our learning management systems, increase employee engagement, and enhance  training.  What learning trends will take hold and make an impact this year?

In this session, we will discuss the emerging learning technology trends for 2018. What’s hot? What’s not? What are we all going to be talking about this year?
