How On Target Were My 2011 Predictions? It’s time once again to take stock of what happened in enterprise mobile learning and see if any of my 2011 predictions hit their intended targets. If 2010 was the year of the pilot, 2011 will be the year of the deployment. Flash will still not be supported on iOS devices in 2011 but this fact will matter far less over time. a.k.a.

Enterprise mLearning Predictions for 2011
JANUARY 2, 2011
It is time once again to ponder the research, extrapolate on recent experience, and attempt to read the tea leaves so we can predict the future of enterprise mobile learning in 2011. If 2010 was the year of the pilot, then 2011 will be the year of the deployment.

What does 2011 look like for consultants?
Spark Your Interest
FEBRUARY 9, 2011
2011 is 1/12th over and thanks to my exalted status as thought leader (!!) for the BQ, I am compelled to write my predictions for 2011. Plus, while most organizations give their managers company owned smartphones, the HR perspective around policy/fairness makes it more challenging. I thought the concept of using Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) for training at a large hotel chain was quite a smart idea. It identified the challenge of multi-platform devices that make it more daunting to create mLearning and while it is electronic it is not online/social. Tony Bates.

How Suitable Is HTML5 For Mobile Learning?
NOVEMBER 22, 2011
Large companies, especially in the BFSI market need security built into their technology solutions.
