With the quickening pace of working life, your learners need short bite-sized learning that specifically targets their immediate requirement. And they expect it to be delivered to a device of their choosing.
What are the benefits of mobile learning?
Can learning really take place anywhere? The short answer is yes. And 90% of organisations are planning to utilise mobile learning* because of the multiple benefits. Mobile learning can help your workforce to:
- Rapidly develop their proficiency, regardless of location
- Put what they have learned into practice straight away
- Keep their productivity levels high as they don’t need time away from their desk attending training
- Stay engaged
You’ll also benefit from potentially significant cost savings, as eLearning can be delivered at a fraction of the cost of traditional classroom training.
Does your LMS support mobile learning?
A modern Learning Management System (LMS) can deliver learning wherever your learners are. If you’re thinking, ‘But my LMS doesn’t do this’, you’re not alone. Nearly half of organisations are actively planning to replace their platform*2 with 66% considering changing LMS to support mobile learning.
How does mobile learning work in practice?
eCom created a customer service qualification for Customer First, a national initiative involving a partnership of Scotland’s 32 Scottish councils. Making learning accessible from desktop, table and mobile devices so candidates can learn at their own place and pace. It also saved on cost - the qualification is delivered at 1/6th of the average cost of a similar type and level of qualification.
