New Report: Digital Learning Consortium Voice of the Learner Survey Results

Share this post:

The Digital Learning Consortium (DLC) has published a Voice of the Learner Survey report which is available for you to download now.

The consortium surveyed more than 5,000 learners, spanning 5 generations, from 114 countries in 15 professional fields. The “snowball” survey covered a broad range of digital learning issues covering the importance of delivery mode, satisfaction with learning experiences, motivators for workplace learning, learning technology preferences and learner demographics.

A few insights:

66% of learners desire powerful viewable, shareable and portable learning records — and they want to control them
78% of professionals said finding all their learning in one place is the #1 way to improve their digital learning experience
Learners value online courses most, followed by digital reading. Video was third
58% prefer to learn alone vs. in a group in a Massive Open Online Course setting
Short micro-learning (1 to 3 minute) has not caught on. 51% prefer sessions that last from 20 to 45 minutes; only 9% favor something shorter
Digital credentials and employment advancement motivate students to consume more learning; peer recommendations ranked low

The Digital Learning Consortium brings together many of the world’s largest firms, most innovative platform providers and top academic institutions to strengthen the digital learning ecosystem for professionals. To learn more about this group, visit: http://dlc.mybluemix.net/index.html

Special thank you to Sarah Siegel, Manager of IBM Global Learning Design and Development, for leading this initiative and driving this impressive sampling.
