Abstract:The skills required by modern organizations and their experts to remain competitive change faster and faster in today’s world. The Learning and eLearning Environment of the Future has to be agile in all aspects, starting from the technical and managerial approach to its implementation, to the approach to Learning Content and Learning Itself. This paper proposes an integrated holistic approach to the Modern Agile Learning Environment and its supporting eLearning technology. It starts with rigorous stakeholder management approach – especially trainers and trainees. The barrier between trainer and trainees is not clear anymore in modern knowledge-building organizations. Stakeholder management must be particularly agile in today’s complex organizational environments, characterized by multiple, ambiguous, uncertain and conflicting objectives, as well as multiple methods to reach these objectives. The article continues to present the conceptual process and functional architecture for an eLearning and collaboration platform able to support an agile Learning Environment, and approaches to collaborative content creation and knowledge building. The complexity of today’s learning projects, programs and environments requires special complexity management methods and skills, but more than this, it also offers significant opportunities, through such characteristics associated with dynamic complexity such as emergence and innovation.
Keywords: eLearning, platforms, collaborative learning, agile learning, learning environment.
