The eLC monthly recommendation is a compilation of several e-Learning and ICT experts articles. This one is, partially, a review of 2016 trends and a forecast of the ones to come in 2017. It begins with a review of MOOCs in numbers and a ranking of top e-learning agents of influence, following with some of the educational foresees for the new year. Apart from that, the post compiles several articles upon instructional design, engagement, data-driven learning and educational contents and resources which we have found interesting to share with the eLC blog readers on this first monthly link compilation entry.
