In the 1970s and 1980s, corporate training meant a slide projector and a stack of plastic-laminated foils.

Today, the $200 billion global training market is undergoing its latest revolution, one that recognizes workers’ need for targeted micro-learning and the capabilities of adaptive learning solutions.
