The radical developments in the ICT sector have made mobile devices an integral part of our lives. These incredible gadgets have revolutionized every facet of human life and learning is no exception.
It is possible to effectively deliver micro lessons over mobiles. These lessons are very helpful in improving productivity because they help to:
How could you ensure efficient application of learning to work? Delivery of micro-lessons over mobile devices is the perfect solution because it helps the learner to access learning at the point of need.
Most of us carry mobiles to our workplace. Don’t we? Small chunks of information could be efficiently transmitted over these gadgets. Employees could use these micro-lessons as ready reckoners to obtain the much-needed JIT support.
Do you wish to provide convenient, yet effective training to your personnel? This learning need could be efficiently satisfied by imparting micro learning on mobile gadgets.
It is common knowledge that participants in corporate training programs often feel overwhelmed when presented with large amounts of information. Effective training could be delivered by systematically breaking the content into several micro lessons. Learners could easily “digest” concepts and retain them better.
Mobiles make learning highly flexible because it could be accessed everywhere at all times. These devices truly break the shackles of place and time. Thus, delivery of micro-lessons on these devices facilitates highly effective, anytime, anywhere learning.
Are you looking for ways to cement the learning of your employees? Concepts learnt in workshops could be efficiently reinforced through micro learning sessions because the gist of the learning could be effectively captured in small chunks of information.
These lessons of a short duration, when delivered through mobile gadgets, help the learner to revise the concepts conveniently – whenever and wherever he wishes, even in “dead time”, while travelling or waiting.
Conveniently use voluminous data
How could you effectively present voluminous data to workers when they need it the most? The answer to this question is presentation of the data in the form of micro content over mobiles.
Users can efficiently work with large amounts of information when it is divided into smaller meaningful chunks. These could be readily accessed through mobile devices enabling the personnel to use voluminous data when needed.
Make better decisions
How could information needed to take appropriate decisions be delivered quickly and efficiently? Mobile devices could be used to provide the right information to make the right decision at the right time.
Information delivered in small chunks could be readily and easily accessed through mobile devices. This helps make better decisions and better decisions make better organizations.
Thus, we see that mobile devices are ideal means of imparting micro learning. How do you provide effective training through micro lessons using mobiles? We would love to learn from your experiences.

According to recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 48 million people (1 in 6 Americans) get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die each year from foodborne diseases. In order to adhere to food safety regulations, one of our clients came up with a requirement for an e-learning course.
E-learning and m-learning are powerful learning methods; both are dynamic and effective ways to teach people. So then, what are the differences between and e-learning and m-learning methods?
E-learning involves a series of modules with in-depth subject-matter while m-learning involves smaller chunks of information which can be accessed anywhere, anytime. Modules are designed differently, depending on the kind of format used to learn. M-learning breaks the barriers of time and place and provides easy access to courses. E-learning also enables learners to access information anytime, anywhere through a laptop, and a stable environment is needed for the learner to take training.
As a college student, I had an opportunity to read Wings of Fire, the autobiography of the former Indian president, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. The story of the “missile man” who rose to great heights from humble beginnings is truly inspiring.
The sudden demise of this eminent scientist is a great loss to the country and has saddened millions. The life of Dr. Kalam is a testimony to the fact that determination and hard work can overcome the shackles of financial and other constraints.
There were a few letters marked “Never sent. Never signed” that were discovered in Abraham Lincoln’s desk after his death. When he was upset with someone he would write a letter expressing his anger but would refrain from sending it to the intended person. This practice allowed him to vent his anger, yet not allow needless or unpleasant consequences. One of the famous unsent letters was to Gen. George G Meade, who was blamed for letting Robert E Lee escape after Gettysburg. Unfortunately, in today’s age of social media, people have “lost the art of the unsent angry letter” – an expression used in a NY times article by Maria Konnikova.
It is common knowledge that good assessments play a key role in the making of an effective online course. They not only help evaluate the learner’s comprehension of the subject-matter, but also reinforce the learning effectively.
We all know the e-learning industry is full of acronyms. Even the word e-learning itself is the shorthand for electronic learning. As an e-learning professional, it is important to be familiar with various acronyms used in the field of e-learning. Here, I would like to share some acronyms that are commonly used in e-learning.
E-learning is increasingly used by organizations as online courses are effective, affordable and can be accessed anytime, anywhere. But, many organizations are not able to realize these benefits offered by the online training medium due to a serious problem – high dropout rates.
