AcadGild, another online training course provider, has seen almost 300 students applying for the course on the data visualisation tool Tableau in the past nine months. For Jigsaw Academy, which provides online analytics courses, courses on data science and machine learning account for more than half their customer base. Data science describes scientific methods, processes and systems to extract knowledge or insights from data in various forms, either structured or unstructured Machine learning enables computers to get into a mode of self-learning without being explicitly programmed.

Several surveys on learning outcomes have highlighted the emerging characteristics of the new age learners who have low attention span, prefer just-in-time access to knowledge repository rather than proactive just-in-case training and content served up based on their respective specific needs. In view of the benefits of enabling employees access learning anywhere, anyplace, several organisations have invested in building e-learning modules or they subscribe to publishers of such content. In the physical dimension of contextual learning, cues present in the learning environment are encoded in the memory of the learner and when these cues are presented again in the context of the content, the learner is likely to recall the content. The cognitive dimension of context improves learning and retrieval via activation of prior knowledge, storage of retrieval cues and elaboration.
And with smarter software, drones can do more autonomously, making the process more efficient and at far lower cost than hiring a specialised pilot to man an aircraft over the fields. The Guangzhou-headquartered firm has so far trained over 1,000 drone operators in its homeland, and is hoping to lower the learning curve for newbies via free online training courses. Poladrone is a Malaysian startup that's writing software to analyse palm oil plantations. Looking at imagery taken from above, it can count the number of oil palms, determine crop health, and alert farmers if it detects blocked pathways.
