Now entering its third year, this research gathers data from thousands of learning and development professionals around the world. It aims to provide the definitive research on the digital learning market, uncovering the trends, tools and technologies that are really impacting corporate learning today; from key drivers of learner engagement and business agility, to who is actually using virtual reality and MOOCs, to exclusive statistics on L&D teams, budgets and investments.

David Wilson, CEO of Fosway Group, is also speaking at the Learning Technologies Asia conference on next generation learning, drawing on the current research to provide unique insights on the transformation of learning systems to learning experiences.

‘With over a thousand L&D practitioners already taking part in the Digital Learning Realities research each year, we are already bringing some much-needed clarity to what can be a market dominated by hype, fads and pseudo-trends,’ explains Wilson. ‘And with Learning Technologies bringing its exciting events to new locations around the world, it’s a great opportunity to capture even more useful data that will help L&D transform. It’s our aim to get to the heart of what’s really working – and not working – for organisations in practice. And we’ll be providing results with a global overview, but also drilling down into the location specific data to support attendees in each country.’

Donald Taylor, Chairman of Learning Technologies comments, ‘We know from our attendees around the world and over 10,000 members of the Learning and Skills Group that there is huge demand for data on what really works in L&D. Over the past two years we have gathered thousands of responses to this research, and with the inaugural Learning Technologies Asia, it’s now exciting to extend it further into the Far East.’

He continues, ‘I’m looking forward to building a useful region-specific view of digital learning, as well as adding to the detailed global picture we are already creating.’

The current 2017 Digital Learning Realities results can be downloaded in a series of three complimentary reports here. The 2018 research opens later this month.

The full conference agenda for Learning Technologies Asia is also available online with social media updates accessible via #LT17Asia.
