What is the value of mLearning for the learners?

mLearning is “learning on the go” that is typically consumed on smartphones/tablets and allows learners to move seamlessly across devices. With the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on the workplace, the focus to offer mLearning solutions that can be consumed by remote learners – working from home – has become a necessity.

mLearning is the preferred mode to learn for learners today. It offers them several benefits, including training on the go or as they work from home and on-demand, anytime, anywhere access. It gives them control on when and how to consume content. It can also be pulled by them, as required, which automatically syncs with their lifestyle.

Why should organizations and L&D teams invest on mLearning?

mLearning can be used to meet the entire spectrum of training needs, including Formal training, Informal Learning, instant/just-in-time learning aids, Self-Directed Learning, and Social or Collaborative Learning. It ensures higher engagement, better completion rates, and is easy to update and re-deploy. It undeniably has lower costs as compared to classroom/ILT.
