I always found that there are two types of people in the training and L&D space. Those who embrace learning technology and those who do not. Sure, the latter group may accept it, grudgingly, but deep down they cannot move off what has worked so well for them in the past.
The problem though is that Instructor-Led training doesn’t work, not from an adult learner standpoint, not from an attendee standpoint, not even from the standpoint of many folks who have utilized the power of e-learning (hence its extensive growth over traditional learning of ILT).
The funny thing about Data
When a learning system pushes the power of data with their brain-based research from experts in elite colleges, and experts on learning with the brain, folks rush to it, without question. After all, it is data backed by research.
