The way in which educators create content is changing. While students are still diving into books and the like to get their education, there has been a new trend towards creating different types of content. More engaging types of content. Here, we want to look at some of the biggest trends around right now.

Video games

People love to play video games, and the interactivity makes them perfect to include educational content in them. Games, if designed in the right way, can teach all manner of different things. Games have been used for testing knowledge. They have been used to teach architecture. They have been used to teach math. This is a trend that is unlikely to be disappearing any time soon.


Yes. Video is an educational trend that has been kicking around for a few years now. However, it has never been easier or more affordable to create video-based content. It is easy to distribute it too. Many educators are creating video-based content that their students are able to watch whenever they wish. This can actually be highly beneficial to the educator because it means they only ever have to explain the core concepts just once. Their students are free to watch the video back at their own leisure. There is a lot that can be done with a video that can’t be done with standard learning materials too, which makes it that much better.

Virtual reality

While this is not a trend that a professor will be able to create on their own, there are a few virtual reality products on the market which educational establishments can purchase. These virtual reality ‘games’ will help to immerse students in their learning. While virtual reality technology is still in the earliest possible days, this is a trend to look out for in the future when it comes to educational content creation. Imagine being able to explore the human body right in front of your eyes, or being able to witness key moments in history…all without leaving the classroom.

Digital education

This is something that a lot of schools have veered towards in recent years. Many schools are starting to put all of their educational materials online. This will allow their students to learn at their own pace. It also means that students are able to reference any material discussed in class at a later date. We are still in the earliest days of digital education, and we have yet to see everything this technology can bring to the table, but we do know that digital education is a trend that isn’t going anywhere. In fact, this is a trend that is likely to be the future of education. Learn more about it in this Essay pro reviews.

Bite-size learning

A lot of the issues that students face when learning is lacking the ability to focus for long periods of time. The result is that many classes will move a bit too fast for them. The solution for many professors and educators has been to break up their courses into bite-size chunks. Learning is now far more interactive, and this trend aims to pack a lot of content into a short period of time. Evidence has shown that it is easier for people to absorb information when it is delivered in bite-sized chunks. Again, this is a trend that we are still in the early stages of, but it does seem to be promising. Content creation now seems to be focused on breaking down content into smaller chunks.

Collaborative learning

This is a method that seems to work well when it comes to creating educational content for people in college and the later years of high school. With collaborative learning, the educator will not come up with the lesson plan. Instead, it is up to the students to go out and research the information themselves. They will be doing this in conjunction with others. The hope for the educator is that because this form of education is a bit more interactive, the students will have a far easier time absorbing the information.

Learning analytics and AI

This is a trend that is very much in its infancy, but a trend that is likely to have a huge impact on educational content in the future. Even now, educators can utilize AI to analyze their students and provide feedback on any ‘shortcomings’. These analytics will be able to create custom learning plans for specific students, which will allow the educator to tailor the educational content for a student.

Obviously, these are just a few of the trends when it comes to educational content creation. We don’t know exactly how the future of education will go, but we can be sure that it will rely heavily on technology, and maybe this will help to deliver far better educational content going forward.
