mLearning has to be now, or we’re left behind

Had a conversation this week about “this thing called mobile learning” (her words); and I just chimed in to say that we have to do it NOW. Failure to dive into these waters will leave us, as a training organization charged with developing our employees, irretrievably behind. 

There are all these data about mobile devices, their uses, their ubiquity, and so on. Just one I saw this morning: 5 Key Mobile Learning Takeaways from Mary Meeker’s 2013 Internet Trends Report

The conversation I had firmly acknowledged that mobile is “the way to go,” yet there is a lack of knowing how to proceed from here. “We’re going to have to talk about this again – and soon.” (as long as the talk quickly turns into action …)

About Rory

I make my home in the central part of the Garden State along with my family. When I'm not working as an Instructional Designer (focusing mostly on Web-Based learning ... and other eLearning technologies) or researching something, I'm found at home playing computer or video games. Among other things, I volunteer as a choir member and catechist for 8th graders at my parish.
