The 2014 eLearning exhibition in Paris highlighted some major trends in the training market. Here is our top 3 :
1. Tailor-made content : companies are now favoring the production of their own content through authoring tools. The growing offer in this field answers this need to create custom-made content easily and quickly. Indeed, off-the-shelf content is often unadapted and dispenses general information.

3. Collaborative tools : dialogue between learners, sharing and social networks are now part of numerous training programs. Building and managing communities, where everyone is free and encouraged to share their experience and best practices, is becoming commonplace. These are great tools to support the growing competence of employees.
