Why you Should be Thinking of Mobile Learning Now
With each passing year, smartphone manufacturers are releasing new devices with mind-boggling capabilities. There are many people that can already perform their jobs using just their hand-held devices. Apple’s A8 chip in the iPhone 6 is 50 times faster than the chip in the original iPhone*, and chips are only going to get faster and faster. So what does this mean for your digital learning?
There’s never been a better time to invest in mobile learning technologies. By getting ahead in this movement, you are giving your company’s training an edge in the workforce and your employees the ability to learn from the device they are most likely using the most. Here are some key benefits to mobile learning solutions:
Flexibility – mobile learning allows employees to learn anytime and anywhere. Smartphone capabilities also allows you to send out different types of training such as elearning, animated or live videos, podcasts, job aids, etc.
Higher rate of completion – because the content presented in digestible bite-sized chunks, learners are more likely to complete the courses. It’s more manageable than giving them a 1hr module for example.
Collaboration – people are already using their phones to access social media, and you can make your training social media enabled so they can discuss the programs in online learning communities.
Multiple Device support – it’s not just available on smartphones, with it’s responsive nature it is available on PCs, laptops and tablets.
Accessibility – the bottom line is learners prefer methods that are as unobtrusive to their daily routines as possible. Providing the mobile option for them to retrieve just-in-time information easily on their smartphones will yield a higher quality of performance.
