What is the Future Value of E-Learning?

Written by Gabe Anderson — Posted in E-Learning Industry

Using the community-powered predictive marketplace inkling, the Masie Center has created a learning futures market, which asks this question:

What will employees, in 2009, use as their PRIMARY tools for everyday learning in the workplace?

e-Learning is currently #3 in this workplace learning market, and its position has fluctuated since the beginning of the week. It was #1 on Monday and Tuesday.

Translation: e-Learning is the future.

Where will e-learning rank in this market when it closes on April 1, 2007?

Want to participate in this experiment? It takes just a few minutes to register with inkling, receive your $5,000 play money, and buy your shares in e-learning (or whatever other learning medium you believe most strongly in).

Here’s a screenshot of the market’s current chart:

It would be cool if you could “sell short” certain stocks. Like I would be interesting in shorting classroom training. 😉

Good call, Morgan! I’m with you on that one.

It looks like the value of elearning has gone up a few dollars since yesterday. I’m putting my money there! Still a couple weeks til this market is closed.

Looks like elearning is making a comeback! It’s back in the #2 spot this morning.

If you’re passionate about elearning and believe in it, don’t forget to take a few minutes to buy some shares in this futures market!
