Today, more than ever, there is a clear need to enhance the way ILT is delivered and to leverage technology and eLearning strategies.
Mobile apps are one of the mLearning, or mobile learning, formats and can be used as effective tools that offer enriched ILT sessions. Using eLearning mobile apps for ILT is an innovative way to digitize ILT. Let me share a case study that showcases how we used a mobile learning app to support ILT delivery.
Our customer wanted us to build an app that could help trainers host and track classroom training sessions on a tablet. This app would help them deliver classroom training in various locations and provide relevant job aids and the learning material to learners as printouts for future reference.
We developed an eLearning mobile app that incorporated some key differentiators. For example:
Let us look at some screenshots of the eLearning app now.
I hope this article provides you with cues on how you can leverage innovative online training tools like eLearning mobile apps to deliver high-impact, digitized Instructor-Led Training (ILT). If you have any queries or need specific support, do contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
