Learning in the Age of Immediacy

5 Factors for How We Connect, Communicate, and Get Work Done

By  Brandon Carson

Welcome to the age of immediacy.

We’re in a new era of learning, one in which learners expect information to be available when and where they want it. How do you make sure your content can keep up? Use these five factors: automation, the cloud, mobile, big data, and the Internet of Everything. 

In Learning in the Age of Immediacy: 5 Factors for How We Connect, Communicate, and Get Work Done, learning strategist Brandon Carson argues that these five edge technologies are here to stay. Through case studies and interviews with industry experts, he shows how they will continue to affect training’s design, delivery, and evaluation. And he gives practical advice to integrate them into your learning strategy, helping you answer important questions along the way: What will the workforce you support look like in the next several years? How will you work in the streaming economy the cloud has introduced? Do you have a mobile strategy for learning? (You should.) And how will you use the emerging practice of data science?  

The stakes are high, and the five factors could be the difference between achieving measurable results and driving your learners to seek solutions elsewhere. Use Learning in the Age of Immediacy to create a learning plan that will serve your workforce now and in the future!
