Wainhouse Research analysts lay out their predictions for 2016 in this article found here. One prediction in particular is that relationships and Learning Relationship Management will become more critical this year.
Alan Greenberg writes:
“At least one new category of products or use cases are going to begin to gain greater visibility in educational technology circles. One of them could be Learning Relationship Managers (LRMs), a new category of platform that combines the elements of e-portfolios, mentoring, analytics, learning communities, coaching and communications hubs, and more. The rationale for this new category is that – with a few exceptions – most Learning Management Systems have failed to provide a holistic ability to create a context for learner-centricity – and then measure outcomes. I’ll explain this one throughout the course of the year but it’s definitely the coming thing. “
We’re excited to read more this coming year, Alan!
