Like training, healthcare is complicated. Patients are scared or unwell, families are worried about their loved ones, and doctors, nurses, and hospital staff are doing their best to ensure their patients are receiving the best treatment available.
This complexity is part of why leading hospitals and clinics around the world are adopting mobile technology for training. Mobile devices have proven pedagogical advantages over traditional eLearning and are extremely portable, easy to use, and owned by nearly everyone. This—combined with emerging strategies for training delivery and talent development—creates opportunities to increase motivation, engagement, and knowledge retention and reduce training costs by making training and performance support resources available at learners’ fingertips.

ADDIE (Analysis Design Development Implementation Evaluation)
- Design model/guideline used by instructional designers and training developers for building effective training and performance support tools. ADDIE is a five-step process that is intended to ensure accuracy and relevance of content, popular in academics and traditional training.
- A design model that contrasts the ADDIE model, instead focusing on speed, flexibility, and collaboration to reduce cost and time as well as keep content fresh and relevant.
Augmented Reality (AR)
- An interactive experience of a real-world environment where objects are augmented with overlaid sensory information generated by a computer. In instructional design, AR is useful in presenting engaging, interactive content within a user’s physical location (e.g., overlaying information about a museum exhibit that’s accessible when physically viewing the exhibit).
