mLearning: Mobile Learning Replay

Mobile learning, also known as mLearning has invaded the eLearning scene. The ability to learn while waiting for an appointment, for a plane, or while at a cabin in the woods without internet access is one of the flagship features of mobile apps.


Cobblestone Consulting takes a deep dive into the world of mobile learning and its transformative potential for organizations. Before delving into the specifics of mobile learning, meet Michelle Schoen, our Chief Learning Officer. Michelle brings a wealth of experience and expertise to our team, making her the perfect guide for today's webinar.

Now, let's address a crucial question...

When given the choice between using a mobile app or accessing content through a website, which option do you prefer?

This dilemma is emblematic of the evolving landscape of digital learning. As a non-millennial parent with millennial children, Michelle has witnessed firsthand the shift towards mobile-centric consumption among younger generations. Their preference for apps underscores the importance of optimizing content for mobile devices.

Where Does mLearning Comes In?

Mobile learning, often referred to as mLearning, epitomizes self-paced, on-the-go learning tailored for tablets and smartphones. While traditionally associated with smartphones, mLearning extends to iPads and tablets, offering flexibility and accessibility anytime, anywhere.

Why should your organization embrace mobile learning now?

Despite its existence for several years, the recent surge in adoption highlights its timeliness. Lets explore how mobile learning can revolutionize your training initiatives, address business challenges, and enhance workforce productivity. The benefits of mobile learning are manifold. Its engaging format fosters higher retention rates, motivates learners, and accelerates completion times. Moreover, it caters to the preferences of modern learners, who demand flexibility and convenience in their training experiences.

Let's dissect the distinction between accessing content via a mobile website versus a dedicated app. Responsive web design ensures compatibility across devices, but native apps offer a streamlined, distraction-free user experience. For example, comparing Bank of America's website to its native app illustrates the stark contrast in usability and convenience.

Real-World Scenarios

Recognizing the preferences of his tech-savvy, mobile-first employees, Frank invests in a custom mobile app for seamless onboarding and training. The app's intuitive interface, tailored learning paths, and gamification elements enhance engagement and retention among employees.

Effective Implementation

To implement mobile learning effectively, organizations must embrace an agile approach, collaborating closely with stakeholders to define requirements and iterate on designs. Whether integrating existing content or developing new materials, the key lies in creating a seamless, user-friendly experience tailored to the needs of your workforce.

In conclusion, mobile learning represents a paradigm shift in corporate training, offering unparalleled flexibility, engagement, and accessibility. By harnessing the power of mobile technology, organizations can future-proof their learning initiatives and empower employees to thrive in an increasingly digital world.
