What is the value of Mobile Apps for Learning for the learners?

A key challenge L&D teams face is disengaged employees. In spite of the trainings being designed well and in line with the indications captured in the TNA, this challenge still continues to persist. One of the measures to counter this challenge is to embrace learning strategies that empower learners. This is where Mobile Apps for Learning fit right in.

Given the daily challenges of distractions and multitasking, learners have limited time for training. They want to see training that’s in their control; it should be accessible on the go and preferably Personalized. The training format must be immersive and relate to the learners. Additionally, the training delivery should synchronize with their lifestyle, so they don’t need to carve out separate time slots for training. As an alternative, they can make use of the available slots in their day and utilize it to learn, practice, or explore. If you take a look at what Mobile Apps can offer for employee training, you will note that it ticks all these boxes.

Why should organizations and L&D teams invest on Mobile Apps for Learning?

Mobile Apps for employee training line up equally well to what L&D teams want to establish. They help them offset the challenge of disengaged employees and provide high effectiveness, particularly on application and behavioral change. They also offset the Forgetting Curve and can be used across varied training needs. Even from the L&D teams’ standpoint, utilizing Mobile Apps for employee training makes business sense.

How can EI Design help you leverage Mobile Apps for Learning for your training programs?

Their real impact can be experienced when they are used to provided Performance Support Tools to offer the requisite on-the-job support. They can easily updated and deployed quickly, and you can effortlessly push relevant Notifications to learners. You can also personalize the assets for each learner (based on pre-tests or surveys).

They can be used to provide both Formal as well as Informal Learning. With combination techniques like Microlearning and Gamification, we make the learning journey bite-sized/action-oriented, challenging, and rewarding. These learning journeys can be easily Personalized (based on the learner’s role, region, proficiency, or interest).

We recommend the usage of Mobile Apps particularly for trainings for Leadership, Sales, Professional Skills, Soft Skills, and Continuing Education. Our learning designs feature personalized feedback, room for reinforcement, practice, and proficiency gain. With spaced repetition, we can leverage Mobile Apps for behavioral change too.
