  • Virtual training delivery along with online access to relevant information through the use of learning portals that integrate social learning tools and allow for employee to employee collaboration. In other words, an increase in social learning technologies.
  • Increase in the use of training that includes white papers, articles, reference sources and the like to provide immediate access to needed knowledge.
