On the brink with mobile– what learning executives say
SEPTEMBER 8, 2012
That’s how I described the status of mobile learning in an article in eLearn magazine ten months ago. My point then was that mobile offers immense potential for learning and support but that it is not yet making much of a difference in the enterprise. Performance support and mobile devices only rarely appeared in the organizational playbook they described. As we look at more recent data, we find an uptick for performance support, in general, but not yet for mobile delivery. No stars in their eyes, not for mobile, not for any approach.

Mobile Learning Moves the Evolution of Authoring Tools
OCTOBER 9, 2012
It’s nothing new —just another step in the continual evolution we’ve seen since the early 1990s, when authoring tools were first introduced to help eLearning professionals create and deliver learning. Over the years, these tools have had to balance ease-of-use with the ability to create a robust learning experience. Also, since projections currently show that the web will be accessed by more mobile devices than desktops by 2014, this post will also explain how D2W has been designed to help authors create and distribute engaging eLearning anywhere… well, almost anywhere.

Rapid Prototyping For Mobile Learning Applications – III
AUGUST 27, 2010
In this, my last post in the series (continuing from Part I and Part II ), I explore what questions we’ve been asking when considering rapid prototyping tools (not just purely for mobile applications) and what we’ve learnt from it. You’ll certainly want to ask some questions before investing a rapid prototyping tool for mobile applications. Or does it have a steep learning curve? Don’t include imaginary elements and controls in your prototype that may be impossible to recreate on the actual target mobile platform. Is the tool easy-to-use? What about the cost?

The iPod Video & e-Learning Looking Glass
OCTOBER 24, 2005
The holidays are coming and I must find a justification for buying (as a gift to myself) the iPod Video. Currently, I am enjoying my 40 Gig iPod for music and have downloaded hundreds of my favorite songs. The cool thing about iPod is the way I can organize, listen, and purchase music anytime I want. I can personalize my iPod. I am however, amazed with how my fellow trainers respond to technologies in this case the iPod. I once asked a group of participants in a workshop about their reactions to the iPod. Only a few have actually experienced using it.
HTML5 and Flash: Two Ways to Create Interactivity in Mobile Learning
Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning
NOVEMBER 2, 2010
Most e-learning developers assume the availability of the free Flash plug-in on the learner's browser. When you get mobile, the world changes rapidly. Some mobile devices may support Flash, others don't. The Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod are examples where your Flash elements simply won't work. Besides, a lot of e-learning content is already developed and optimized for Flash. This works fine on desktops and laptops. Apple proposes that you use HTML5 instead, to build rich interfaces. In another post on HTML5 , I talk about its impact on web interactivity.

The Learning Experience as a Mobile Endeavor
SEPTEMBER 29, 2011
I often ask my parents what college — and, therefore, learning — was like before the Internet came to be. Point being, my entire adult learning experience has revolved around learning through technology. Much of what I know about learning today (I am 24 years old) is filtered through the use of e-learning, or learning technologies. So when I sat down to chat with my younger sister, who started her freshman year of college a few weeks ago, I was astonished to find the progress that’s been made — particularly in the mobile learning space.
