Mobile devices have become an extension of the people that use them, providing on-the-go access to virtually unlimited information. While being connected has its perks, sifting through what's available to identify what's valuable can be a challenge—one that can come at a cost. Embracing mobile learning provides an opportunity to ensure the information most relevant to your learners is available when and where they need it, delivered how they prefer.
Optimize Training for Mobile Learning
Fully tapping the potential of mobile learning requires more than simply making your existing training responsive on mobile devices. As with all delivery methods, your mLearning experience will be more valuable if your content is optimized to align with how learners interact with their devices. For example, while people check their mobile devices often it's typically in short bursts, so maximizing engagement may require breaking longer-form content down into bite-sized microlearning lessons.

What is the difference between eLearning and mLearning?
While eLearning and mLearning are both types of online learning, the former is delivered on a PC or laptop and the latter on a smartphone or tablet—and fully utilizing either one requires optimizing training for the device it's delivered on.
Beyond merely ensuring content can be accessed on the desired device, it should also reflect the way learners typically interact with the device. Examples of content best suited to mLearning include microlearning lessons, video content with subtitles and interactive content such as polls and short quizzes—all of which are engaging and suitable for "on the go" learning.
