Mobile Learning: The Essential Information for Training Professionals

For years, learning analysts have been predicting wide adoption for mobile learning. But, until now, this has not occurred. The adoption of mobile learning has been constrained by slow networks, limited services, anemic devices, and a hesitancy by organizations to purchase hardware that could soon be obsolete.

All of this is now changing.

Mobile learning is taking off because the access devices, mobile phones, are already in people’s pockets. In addition, the phones are owned by the learners, not by institutions or large organizations. This makes an enormous psychological difference in terms of learners viewing themselves as being in control of their own learning.

We’ve just published a new report to help you make the leap from desktop-based online learning to leveraging mobile devices. Co-written by Gary Woodill, Ed.D., Director of Research and Analysis, and Adam Cunningham-Reid, Researcher at Brandon Hall Research, “Mobile Learning: The Essential Information for Training Professionals” provides you with the key information you need to understand how mobile learning is changing the face of training.
