If you had not been living under the rock (read: away from the Internet), you know infographics are everywhere. They are on websites. They show up on whitepapers. They are in the ads. They are splashed all over newspapers. But of course, there are plenty of good reasons why content creators use infographics. These stunners are also excellent learning tools. Most human beings are visual learners. As eLearning designers, you too should tap into the immense instructional potential of infographics.
Bring your own device (BYOD) is a practice that has been around for years. Computer Business review estimates that 760 million tablets will be sold worldwide by the end of 2016, with more than 30 per cent of those in the enterprise. What is more, it is predicted that in the future tablets are more likely to be recycled among users, rather than scrapped, as it is with desktops. Recognizing the longer life cycle of mobile devices, companies embraced the BYOD protocols among their employees aiming at increased productivity.
The next natural step was a new approach abbreviated as CYOD (choose your own device), which kept all the benefits of BYOD, upgrading them increased security control, by limiting the potential devices employees may use. In 2015, a new trend is emerging. Bring-your-own-Internet-of-things (BYOIoT) involves more wearable devices that will be used by employees, which will ultimately expose the enterprise to a whole new light of potential security concerns.
