My eBook, mLearning – A Must-have Strategy to Scale Employee Training in the New Learning Environment, outlines mLearning strategies and examples you can use to train remote learners – focusing on how you can craft learning journeys from a distance.
With “lockdown logistics,” training and development program managers look for new ways to fulfill their remote training delivery mandates.
Take a look at some stats on the impact of COVID-19 on L&D and how learners feel about their response (Source – Fosway Group):
- 94% L&D teams have had to change their strategy in response to the pandemic.
- 71% organizations have experienced an increased demand for Digital Learning from end users (82% increased demand from senior stakeholders).
- 59% end users thought their organization’s adoption of Digital Learning was immature.
- Only 5% think their L&D strategy can be reverted to how it was before the pandemic.
In the changed workplace dynamics, with a significant percentage of the workforce working remotely, mLearning is a must-have strategy for the new learning environment. It is “learning on the go” that is typically consumed on smartphones/tablets and allows learners to learn seamlessly across devices (across mobile devices and laptops/desktops).
mLearning provides an effective and scalable approach to ensure that your employee training keeps pace with the business goals – even in the changed workplace dynamics. A strong mLearning strategy offers enticing value propositions for both learners and the organization.

I have designed the eBook, mLearning – A Must-have Strategy to Scale Employee Training in the New Learning Environment, into 4 sections as shown here:

Section 2 – How Can You leverage mLearning for Your Training and Development Programs
This section begins with the 70-20-10 L&D model that is adopted extensively by global organizations for their training programs. This model was established and pioneered by Morgan McCall, Robert Eichinger, and Michael Lombardo at the Center for Creative Leadership.
