Digital education scenarios have arrived in the mainstream of our society
LEARNTEC has been following this evolution towards a digital learning culture for more than two decades. While back in the early 1990s, only experts would have been familiar with the term “e-learning”, it is as relevant as ever in the current age of digitisation, immigration and globalisation. Yes, it is safe to say that this question has established itself in the mainstream of our society. When LEARNTEC was held for the first time, hardly anyone would have imagined how digital media is second nature for us today.

Digital learning media are on the rise and have established themselves in many areas in recent years – for instance in schools, universities, public institutions and, needless to say, in companies as well. They are now a fixed part of integrated education concepts. As well as this, more and more people are using digital media privately to acquire knowledge, to further their education or to acquire new skills. Education experts Jörg Dräger and Ralph Müller-Eiselt even claim that digitisation is changing education on a scale that has not been seen since the introduction of letterpress printing and compulsory schooling.
