The use of mobile devices and technology for learning and information access is rapidly gaining ground across the world. If not already adopted, mobile learning is now featuring in most strategy discussions within L&D teams in large and small enterprises. But are you still trying to escape it?
As you probably already know, last week we kicked off our independent webinar series with the first one titled as ‘No Escaping Mobile Learning’ which I co-presented with Abhijit Kadle (watch recording here). I’m very pleased with the response we got on this – 400 registrations and 136 actual attendees. Thank you for making it a successful beginning for us and we do hope to continue sharing our insights on topics that matter the most to you. At the end of this post are answers to the questions asked in the webinar.
In this webinar, Abhijit and I discussed about the six key drivers that are forcing organizations to adopt mobile learning. They are -
Growing mobile workforce
Computing shifting to handheld devices
Changing behavior patterns
Next generation of workforce
When do we really learn
Doing more with less
We believe each of them is powerful enough to drive your organization to mobile learning, but put together they create the perfect storm for adoption.
In this webinar You also touched upon how to get started with mobile learning quickly. Our advice is to ‘just do it’ while a full-fledged strategy can come later. This seemingly contrarian advice comes from the fact that creating a comprehensive strategy is time consuming and complex. Getting started with a simpler mobile learning project will help get your hands dirty and give you some valuable inputs which will be very useful for strategic planning in future.
