Mobile Learning

Hi All

I watched a Webinar this morning on Mobile Learning & Business Transformation delivered by Learning Tech Manager @ Vodafone - it was incredibly insightful. I definitely recommend those that missed it check out the recording on Learning Skills Group website.

  • Hi Mike

    Interesting questions you pose, the Webinar was clearly delivered with Vodafone's perception of what mobile learning means to them. For me, it was about how they use their mass audience (millennials!) and deliver in-the-moment / just-in-time training on a platform that they probably check 80+ times a day anyway. Delivering a great level of choice & flexibility. 

    My takeaways were lot's of thought-provoking ways of better delivering content to users when they want it & when the business needs it (e.g. YESTERDAY!!). It can take us so long to develop what we perceive to be quality learning material through our standard LMS, by which time, in Vodafone's case, the end-users have already YouTube'd & Google'd the content on their smart phones therefore by the time the corporate content reaches them, (a) it's potentially out-of-date and (b) the user is already clued up and self-educated, increasing the risk of them not actually accessing/completing/viewing the corporate content. There of course is a risk of consistency with this but Mike from Vodafone threw some very good challenges back to say, (Q) Does the user actually care about what is comms & what is L&D?, (Q) Is the content your central function produce as good as you think?, (Q) Are you giving your users enough choice about how, what, when they are accessing what is effectively "information to help me do my job, now."; hence the question, 'do they really differentiate between "comms" and "L&D".

    Very interesting, I've taken lots of questions away to challenge our content, well worth a watch!

  • Cheers Chris - so something that is often misunderstood is what actually is mobile learning?

    What were your take-aways from this webinar and how would you explain it to the uninitiated?

    Will post the recording link here when it's posted :)

  • I'm sorry I missed that so thanks for sharing, Chris.
