The number of companies using mobile-learning is growing by leaps and bounds. According to the Ambient Insight Report (2011), the number of companies buying mLearning solutions is growing by 29.3% per annum. Therefore, it doesn’t come as a surprise that mLearning is the latest buzzword in the L&D world. As the number of people using mobile devices continues to rise, organizations are increasingly depending on these hand-held appliances to impart training.
M-learning makes learning truly mobile. It allows learners to get in touch with their mentors or peers, even when they are travelling. It “connects” people and supports knowledge-sharing through SMS texting, discussion forums, etc. The sudden increase in usage of smartphones has created the need to deliver training through mLearning.
