Subject focus Digital Technologies in Training and Adult Education
Intended audience: Trainers and adult trainees

Description of how the resource serves the discipline
This resource focuses on how the evolution of digital technology has helped in education and training adult education to improve their skills. The technology-mediated environment helps employees in developing skills and knowledge that can be used to boost their productivity in workplaces. But it is vital to determine how adult trainees perceive online training and their experience in digital contexts. Findings from different experiments indicate that older learners perform poorly on online training when prompts are used; hence it is necessary not to use prompts when designing training videos for adults (Gegenfurtner, Schhmidt-Hertha, and Lewis, 2020). The attitude of the older learners towards digital education depends on the educational background, age, and levels of media-related training of the digital educators. Digital trainers who participated in online courses before were more competent and portrayed a positive attitude. They met the trainees’ expectations in using various technologies and tools to foster learning.

Description of how the resource serves the discipline
The dynamics of the 21st century have made adult education programs develop a unique personality and improve the quality of human resources. Adult education helps in improving the competence, skills, knowledge, and abilities to enhance employability and increase the level of competitiveness in the job market (Liashenko, 2020). The main purpose of the adult education system is to constantly advance the skills of adult learners to meet their educational needs and promote human development. Human capital requires learning throughout their professional life to boost their communication abilities, team effectiveness, and adaptability skills, among other vital qualities. Although adult education helps to sharpen the skills of the adult learners, time requirement and cost of tuition has major challenges that prevent these learners from accomplishing their goals. Adult learners also have other commitments such as jobs and family that they have to take care of, thus complicating their schedules.
