For many companies the first step towards mLearning seems to be adapting existing eLearning content for mobile use. Moving eLearning courses onto smartphones is not the best approach for mLearning—the context for using mobile content is very different. (See “Right Time and Place: mLearning Use Cases” in the Related Articles listed at the end of this article.)

Smartphone is pretty rubbish for extended blocks of learning, but fantastic for just-in-time support (which ends up being learning). Nothing more mobile.

Yesterday at work with had a health representative perform an in-service on opti-flow humidification units.  It was very interesting as at the end of the presentation he concluded by saying:  'you can download an app onto your iphone  which provides this education and problem solving for this machine (I had to find out what's special about iphones).  

 

I was amazed how technology has changed how you get educated in the workplace.

Rather than focussing on a learning theory first. sometimes it is best to think about what would work best for your learners given the content and learning objectives. Then see if your plan matches particular learning theories and explore from there.

Mobile devices have become deeply engrained in our everyday lives. From reading to schedule management to entertainment to GPS, it is The Multi-Purpose Gadget in our lives and some have even said to suffer from the “phantom limb” syndrome without it! Mobile Learning, or mLearning for short, lets learners learn and get performance support via their mobile devices. This article introduces to you the unique features of mLearning, what it can be used for and the difference between mLearning and traditional eLearning.

Ralph Springett's curator insight, June 7, 2:25 PM

A common misunderstanding in Ed Tech circles is that mLearning is short bite sized learning. Delivering information can be bite sized (just in time short pieces for on-job or specific tasks) but contextualised learning (which mLearning is particularly good at) can be complex and may require time to explain.

Why You Should Care About M-Learning

Why You Should Care About M-Learning | M.E.learning | Scoop.it

"Mobile learning is becoming increasingly popular in the workplace. There are a variety of reasons for this, but many have to do with the accessibility of mobile devices, the savings associated with a mobile enabled learning program, and the convenience mobile learning affords the learner. In fact, today if there is a learning management system (or courses) that do not perform on mobile devices, it is borderline in-excusable. In five years time, it will be flat-out archaic."
