4 Things You Didn't Know About Mobile Learning Infographic
- Intuitive Mobile Authoring Tools
Did you know that a recent research with 500 Learning & Development staff shows that 70% of them are either using or planning to introduce mobile learning by 2014? Out of these, 62% use or plan to use mobile learning to deliver content to support formal learning. This should hardly come as a surprise now that you know these less known facts about mobile learning.
- Authentic Learning
No learning course can be complete without assessments; not only do they motivate your learners to take the training seriously, but also act as a sort of feedback about how effective the learning program is. Your learners are mature people not kids, and you would not like to invigilate them while they appear for their assessments, nor would they appreciate it. But what if there is a way to check any unfair means without human supervision? Well, interestingly this is possible by configuring the front and back cameras of your learners’ mobile phones to detect any foul means for tests that are mobile based.
This is probably one of the best selling points of mobile learning, after flexibility. A course started on a mobile can be easily viewed and completed on a PC. All you need to provide is a reliable synchronization mechanism between the enterprise server which hosts and updates the LMS, the client PCs/laptops and the mobiles/PDAs so that users can continue their learning anywhere without having to worry about whether the LMS will get updated or not.
