It’s the most wonderful busiest time of the year! From Thanksgiving to New Year’s Eve, it seems like everyone is all “go, go, go!” From trying to hit all the holiday parties to wrapping up year-end projects and budgets to planning for next year, there’s tons to do and a plethora of places to be.
How do you reach your target audience—be they employees or perhaps your children—when they are so all over the place?
mLearning, my friends. mLearning is the solution.
mLearning allows you to deliver training anywhere, anytime. Ah, the possibilities! According to an article on the Adobe eLearning Blogs, mLearning is being used by nearly 47% of organizations worldwide. mLearning has been shown to improve knowledge retention and employee engagement. Survey company dScout revealed that “the average person spends 2 hours and 51 minutes on their smartphone each day, looking at it roughly 221 times and touching its screen more than 2,600 times.” I think that’s an argument for both mobile learning and the importance of disinfecting your phone screen…
According to Towards Maturity, “64% of learners find accessing their training content from a mobile device essential.” That’s right—essential!
So, how do you create mLearning?
Most of the major authoring tools now offer some sort of responsive design or mLearning options. Here are a couple articles to help you decide which tool is best for your mLearning needs:
