Posted by Adam Wagner on Jun 18, 2019 4:00:00 PM

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.

Training the Modern Workforce: Mobile Learning for Your Business

Posted by Adam Wagner on Apr 10, 2019 11:47:21 AM

Distance learning, eLearning, LMS, LXP—there are tons of terms floating around about how technology is revolutionizing the way we learn. But when it comes to business, mobile learning—or mLearning—is gaining traction and here to stay.

mLearning uses mobile technology to deliver learning and training materials that are context-aware, on-demand, and just in time. It’s less structured and formal than a traditional eLearning course, focusing less on memorizing and knowledge retention and more on skill and experience. Learners are able to quickly access key data and review relevant information about a task to improve their productivity and make better-informed decisions in real time. And the more mobile technology grows, the easier it will be to harness this potential for company-related training and knowledge dissemination.

eLearning, mLearning, and Microlearning Breakdown

Posted by Adam Wagner on Apr 8, 2019 5:58:03 PM

In broad terms, education technology has been around since the dawn of education. Things like the abacus, blackboards, and books have been used to teach for over a millennium. But with the recent (historically) explosion of technological advancements, education technology has moved into the digital era along with all of us.

Based on landmark theories in pedagogy and learning, eLearning—or “electronic learning”—breaks through the barriers of the traditional classroom and extends education to wherever there’s a computer with an internet connection. As developments in mobile technology increased, mLearning—or mobile learning—took the classroom completely out of the equation, allowing materials to be accessed from anywhere from a learner’s mobile device. This drastically changed the way we access information, leading to a rise in Microlearning, which focuses on short, task- or goal-oriented chunks of information.

And while all three of these concepts have revolutionized education, the ways these contribute to and differ from each other can be difficult to understand. Below is a breakdown of the eLearning, mLearning, and Microlearning:
