What were the most popular Training/Learning topics in 2016?

Great Research in the field of L&D

particularly in the Middle East region is scarce to say the least. In an attempt to formulate some indications of the common learning and development topic areas XpertLearning delved into its many portals that make up a support network for some of the leading corporate and government sectors in the region to try to find out

Bear in mind that although our study will be biased towards online learning many of our customers connect these learning initiatives both their in house and external training provision.

In a similar but more global perspective our partners SkillSoft have been evaluating the top courses books and simulations so it’s interesting to compare these against our Middle East based learning topics
