A graduate of Harvard University with an EdM in school leadership, Cory Olcott has taught at multiple schools in Massachusetts and California. Cory Olcott is particularly interested in online learning, a field that is constantly evolving. Following are few trends that are changing the online learning landscape.

Smarter use of data. The prevalence of data in today’s e-learning environment allows teachers to use data to tailor instruction according to each student’s needs. Educators can use students’ test results to fine-tune their lessons and help students in areas where they struggle.

Two-way communication. Educators have the ability to gather feedback on the content they deliver. Teachers can leverage surveys and questionnaires to ask students about areas in which they need assistance. Teachers can then adapt their strategies to meet students’ needs.

Microlearning. A strategy that recently has grown exponentially, microlearning allows students to learn on their own schedule and at their own pace. Microlearning emphasizes content delivery in short, focused sessions to maintain students’ attention and help them master specific concepts.
