mLearning is a booming field! Small wonder, given the many advantages mobile learning technology offers:
Mobile elearning can be used with geo-localization on the factory floor, as a perfect tool for performance support, for example: upon reaching a certain boundary, a video becomes available to show the learner how a given machine functions.
Mobile learning has far-reaching implications:
Mobility also seems to have a major positive impact on augmented, contextual, and collaborative learning.
Even though in most cases we don't recommend taking an entire online course on a mobile device (either a smart phone or a tablet), these are powerful complementary e-learning tools.
Ideally, mobile learning will be one ingredient of your learning mix, along with other methods and technologies: since information is consumed in different ways on mobile devices, another form of instructional design is required.
