More and more humans are bringing mobile devices into their lives. A veritable third of humanity — that’s more than 2 billion — now carries a mobile device with at least some amount of computing power!

It comes as no surprise that, mobile devices, in addition to connecting us to the global network, act as facilitators of social interaction and mobile learning. Moreover, smartphones have already outsold desktops, notebooks, and netbooks put together.

This is radically changing the way we live. As an L&D professional, why not harness this shift to change the way our learners learn?

WHAT IS MOBILE LEARNING..?

  • As a tool to meet learning needs.
  • As a learning content delivery platform.
