This post lists several new developments in delivering science and engineering online. These developments join a list of other efforts that are listed below in the reference section that suggest we may be reaching a tipping point in teaching science and engineering online.
Deep-learning researchers have found that certain neurons in the brain have shape and electrical properties that appear to be well-suited for deep learning the kind of machine-intelligence used in beating humans at Go and Chess.
Canadian Institute For Advanced Research (CIFAR) Fellow Blake Richards and his colleagues Jordan Guerguiev at the University of Toronto, Scarborough, and Timothy Lillicrap at Google DeepMind developed an algorithm that simulates how a deep-learning network could work in our brains.
Compared to last year, ATD's 2017 State of the Industry report shows gains in learning expenditure and learning hours used.
Organizations continued to make healthy investments in employee learning in 2016, according to the Association for Talent Development.
While it's relatively easy for competitors to implement technology similar to yours, duplicate your strategy, and even mimic your culture, they can't clone your people. That's why most organizations agree talent is a top priority.
Every year it's fun to take a broad look at the eLearning industry and try to predict some trends that will dominate the coming months. Here are 5 trends we think you should look out for this year!

So, I'd been unhappy with how hard it was to update my site.

The Top Learning Management Systems Based on User Experience list has been created using a holistic approach and is based on input from actual LMS users. The order of appearance depends on System Usability Score, Perceived Usefulness & Net Promoter Score.
Organizations are looking for high-impact, technology-enabled learning solutions to improve their training initiatives and boost organizational efficiencies. This becomes pertinent with the advances in digital technology.

Techniques such as metacognition and self-regulation are levers that speed up students' learning, say Lee Elliot Major and Steve Higgins
Some teachers were baffled by the technical sounding terms metacognition and self-regulation when we first presented the Teaching and Learning Toolkit seven years ago.
For those who may still be a little hazy on the exact details: metacognition simply means thinking about thinking or consciously directing your own thinking.
While the digital workplace is here to stay, change continues all around us. The changes companies must manage and adapt to in a digital workplace are impacted by many internal and external factors including technology, budgets, business model, politics, location, processes, leadership, legal and tax barriers.
Machine Learning Market Overview
Machine learning solutions facilitate machines to learn without being specifically programmed for it. Machine learning algorithms can be used to perform tasks such as statistical arbitrage, image recognition, medical diagnoses, speech recognition, classification, learning association, prediction and information extraction.
THE Public School System is educating parents about its e-learning program which is now in its sixth year.
PSS distance education coordinator Lorraine Catienza and director of instructional technology Bobby Cruz have been sharing with parents the importance of 21st century learning and technology.

Any useful statement about the future should at first seem ridiculous.Jim Dator, futurist at University of Hawaii-Manoa
Here's something ridiculous for you: Futurists and experts on aging and longevity are now suggesting that the first people to live to be 150 years old have already been born.
In 2008, University of Manitoba professors Stephen Downes and George Siemens taught a course on learning theory that was attended by about 25 paying students in class and by another 2,300 students online for free. Colleague Dave Cormier at the University of Prince Edward Island dubbed the experiment a massive open online course, or MOOC.
In 2015, a group of Kentucky citizens took a deep look at student achievement gaps and learned that they have grown over the last decade even as overall student results improved, and that these gaps disproportionately affect students of color, low-income students, students with learning differences and English-language learners.
The resulting citizen-led report by the Prichard Committee Excellence with Equity: It's Everybody's Business sparked an urgent call to action to counter the gap.
The new guidebook, Blending Teaching and Technology: Simple Strategies for Improved Student Learning, offers school district leaders a collection of strategies aligned to the Future Ready Schools framework for implementing an instructional approach supported by blended learning.
The guidebook demystifies the definition of blended learning while explaining its various research-based structural models.
Educators consider laptops, like the ever-popular Chromebook, to be the most effective technology in the classroom.
The Economist Intelligence Unit, with some help from Google for Education, explored the critical role of technology in the classroom in the recently released report, Fostering exploration and excellence in

We have entered the Age of Artificial Intelligence (AI). And, while many of us have heard how AI will impact market segments like manufacturing or R&D, I find myself wondering: What about other areas of business--like L&D? How will AI affect learning and development?
As James Paine points out, "It wasn't so long ago that artificial intelligence was reserved to the realm of science fiction according to the public.
