Video Interview by Jon Aleckson

Guy W. Wallace Interview by Jon Aleckson done on 2020-12-11. Jon interviewed me as part of his annual development of the eLearning Hype Curve – this one for 2021.

He did it a little differently this year as he says:

We’re doing our predictions a little different this year. Instead of combing through tweets, we’ve decided to get up close and personal with the trends and get the trends straight from the sources. We interviewed the top pundits in the online learning space and asked their personal take on each trend.

This video interview with me is 21:32 minutes in length.

The eLearning Hype Curve

Jon has recently complied 4 videos from multiple video interviews done at the end of 2020 – and has posted them here:  eLearning Hype Curve: Our Predictions for 2021 – Web Courseworks.

The eLearning Hype Curve is a visualization of what’s “trending” in eLearning, built on the Gartner Hype Cycle theory. This theory holds that technologies emerge with little initial recognition and grow in familiarity until they reach their maximum “hype.” Hype goes through five phases: Innovation Trigger, Peak of Inflated Expectations, Trough of Disillusionment, Slope of Enlightenment, and Plateau of Productivity.

Here are the 10 “Pundits” he interviewed for this take at the future…
