4 Reasons to Consider Mobile Learning for Your Organization

Today’s world is a very busy place, and time continues to be a very important constraint for all of us. This can be a very important issue, especially for corporate professionals who are often faced with a number of problems that require immediate resolution. Your employees also spend a significant amount of time in meetings, where they have to select the required information from abundant data and take correct decisions.

Mobile learning to help your employees

Mobile learning is the design and delivery of eLearning material on mobile devices. These mobile devices enable your employees access their training anywhere and anytime. With increasing use of mobile devices, mobile learning is being adopted quickly by many organizations to provide up-to-date information to their employees.

Reasons why you need to adopt mobile learning in your organization 

Developing mobile learning is not for squeezing time from your employees’ schedule, but to give access to information that might be helpful for them during their work. With little investment, mobile learning will greatly increase the overall productivity and reduce training costs.

Let’s now see a why you should consider mobile learning for your organization.

1. Convenience and Relevance

Mobile learning allows your employees to get access to relevant content anywhere and at any time, exactly when they need it. This is a major reason why many organizations adopt mobile learning. 

2. Wider access 

Global organizations are adopting mobile learning to train their employees at different locations, using the same learning material. Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is a trend adopted by many organizations which have successfully implemented mobile learning.

 3. Effective learning

With mobile learning, your employees have the freedom to learn whenever they want and wherever they want, at their convenience. This makes it a learner-driven learning process and therefore makes learning more effective. It gives an option of utilizing their spare time to learn and also makes the learning process an integral part of your employees’ routine which results in better retention of the information.

 4. Bite-sized information

Given the limitation of the screen size, mobile learning provide your employees with only bite-sized, easily digestible learning chunks. Though this reduces the amount of information that is presented to the learner, it helps in reducing the cognitive load and improves the learning.

When they have quick access to these short chunks of information, employees have a chance to get connected to experts before they attend important meetings or at the beginning of a task which improves their decision making skill.

 These are some of the reasons that make mobile learning imperative. Have anything to say? Please do share.
