Sadly though many still are in the dark on true mobile learning – i.e. not accessing their platform via a mobile web browser. Web Conferencing – You would think that all these services would have a native app for tablets. Those who aren’t are either offering native apps with online/offline synch or performing the shell game via the mobile web browser and calling it mobile learning. My Forecasts for 2012.

Pick of the Month: July 2012

Jane Hart

The idea that learning is best carried out by removing people from the workplace and providing them with structured content and (if they were lucky) opportunities to practice in a simulated environment was blown away with the invention of the Web and the appearance of ubiquitous information sources. “In 2012, the only thing left standing between you and knowledge is your will to learn.”

E-learning Developer vs. Web Developer

Integrated Learnings

How do you know if you need a web developer? This includes developing for web, LMS, and even DVD distribution. So you may be asking why would I pay extra for a web developer? To answer that, let's look at some of the abilities you will gain in a web developer : Knowledge of the underlying technologies of e-learning development tools. A web developer has a deeper understanding of these technologies and can extend the abilities of these tools with that knowledge.

m-Learning Evolution – From Native to Web Apps


As we work more in mobile learning and content delivery space, my belief is strengthening that instead of current model of writing native apps, web apps are going to become favorite medium to deliver m-learning for mobile devices. It’s for these reasons that I believe that this native app model with such a diverse OS landscape is not sustainable, and that there will be movement away from native apps to web apps.

Review: Learning Everywhere by Chad Udell

Experiencing eLearning

I believe my current phone is what is called a “feature phone”; I can download some games and I am able to access the web (although I don’t have a data plan, so I don’t use it that way). Even if you are like me and don’t have a smartphone, you can clearly see the problems with standard web, e-learning, and performance support interfaces once they are moved to a phone. I am still very much a novice in mobile learning.
