LMS: What You Should Know

E-learning has become an increasingly popular delivery method for education and training. Harvard Business School studies have identified online learning as one of the "disruptive innovations” of the 21st Century. Research on disruptive innovations indicates that, initially, such innovations fill a niche for those who are not served well or at all by the present system, even though in early phases the quality of such innovations is often poor. However, as demand grows over time and as the quality of such disruptive innovations is improved, their adoption increases—following a logistic curve, or s-curve (Christensen et al., 2008; Rogers, 2003). 

Based on data on the growth of online learning from the North American Council of Online learning and U.S. Department of Education statistics, Christensen et al. (2008) predict that 50% of high school courses will be offered online by 2019. Read that again!

The eLearning market is growing at an unprecedented rate. eLearning revenues reached an incredible $51.5 billion in 2016. DevDigital is proud to say that we are heavily invested in this emerging marketplace and currently deploying numerous Learning Management Systems (LMS) for both private and public sector offerings involving thousands of participants all over North America and beyond.
