Digital technologies are creating a huge impact on the global economy and therefore, demand for employees with high skill sets is increasing. These technologies are rapidly changing and the institutions, education system, and enterprises are unable to meet demand for such skill sets. Therefore, skill gap arises due to lack of investment in training for users. Thus, enterprises and educational institutions are adopting e-Learning programs that help students and employees to learn required skill sets. E-learning has transformed workplace training programs and has made it easier, affordable and provided access to a wide range of learning resources. Large number of enterprises are shifting their focus from conventional classroom training to e-Learning programs as it offers convenient and effective solutions to train employees. Also, there is increasing focus on e-Learning activities that are based on experiences which include case studies, branching scenarios, and simulation-based training. Moreover, advent of advanced technologies will lead to integration of artificial intelligence technology, which, in turn, has the potential to offer personalized e-Learning programs. This will result in better learning management and improve employee performance. Therefore, due to several benefits of e-Learning, it is expected to create growth opportunities in the corporate and education sector that will increase demand for training solutions globally.
