The calm after the storm, they say… So, to give us an idea, we have deciphered the news in order to know how the post-COVID-19 period is organized?
After 2 months of confinement and a drop in activity for most sectors, the French were eagerly awaiting the de-confinement. Moreover, the “Trust and Coronavirus ” report revealed that employees have high expectations of their company in this health crisis. Indeed, 51% want responsible and effective actions to support and protect their employees. And 56% want clear and concrete information on how to avoid viruses and the actions taken by the company.
This is why the actors of Digital Learning have a role to play in this period of de-confinement. But everyone is going their own way. Post-covid-19 hires, special de-confinement training, rewards to ensure the future…
Hire to ensure post-VID-19
At a time when the government is talking about short-time working measures that are likely to continue in order to avoid layoffs in companies, some Digital Learning players are hiring. This is the case, for example, of the edufactory team looking for its new marketing nugget as part of an end-of-study / pre-employment internship. And this is not the only one, as the company Creative-Formation is also looking for a Micro & Mobile-Learning designer.
In short, the aftermath of covid-19 seems hopeful for the Digital Learning market (at least).
Special de-confinement trainings
As we have seen with the rollout of webinars and other online training, the coronavirus health crisis has brought EdTech and digital education to the forefront. The goal was to ensure educational continuity despite the closure of training institutions. This is what prompted Edtech France to mobilize by offering part of its offer free of charge via a solidarity platform.
In this vein, some continue to offer special de-confinement training. For example, Edufactory offers, in partnership with Salvum, a digital training on barrier gestures. This training allows you to know how to protect yourself against the virus throughout the day. Whether during the home-to-work journey, but also at the workplace and in everyday life. This training can be customized in terms of role-playing, according to the health rules and the specificities of the company’s business.
LALAMEDIA also helps companies to meet the high expectations of their employees. In partnership with the CNEH (the leading training organization for health professionals), it has designed a digital educational communication solution.
And it’s not the only company! Indeed, the creative studio and editor of solutions Speedernet has also designed a remote path for managers. Its objective is to help managers to understand the next world.
Securing the future post-VIDOC-19
Despite the health crisis, life goes on with positive things! After 108 applications were presented to the jury members of the Digital Learning Trophies 2020, 11 projects among the best of Digital Learning were selected as winners.

A glimmer of hope for those involved in Digital Learning
As Manpower Group France wrote in its article “Covid-19 has potentially accelerated the transformation of the world of work”. And so Digital Learning has more than its place in the years to come. In spite of this period of uncertainty, a glimmer of hope seems to be emerging for the actors of Digital Learning.
