The Pulse of Mobile Learning

Allison Rossett

Most of what is said and written about mobile learning and support touts potential and points to the future. Current studies confirm a faint pulse for mobile in enterprise learning today. To our surprise, even in this professionally active sample, only 4% said they were using mobile to deliver learning and support in their organizations. So low was that number that I confirmed it with several large audiences, including one at a conference devoted to mobile learning.

With great anticipation I entered the huge expo at ASTD International show earlier this week. Mobile Learning. If you think they used the ASTD app and wrote down some notes, I think you would be surprised. The salesperson showed me the course example which contained on the left side of the screen – the table of contents – very common with WBT and really a requirement for end users.

Apparently there must be a huge demand for scalping ASTD badges or hood winking ASTD for access into their show. If I could give ASTD a grade it would be a massive F.

Leader development is the question. Is mobile the answer?

Allison Rossett

How about mobile devices? Mobile messages go where tasks, needs and people are. However, as enticing as they are, mobile devices are not major players in enterprise workforce development, in general, and in leader development, in particular. To our surprise, only 4% of a professionally active sample reported that they were using mobile devices for enterprise learning and support. Late in 2012, Elliott Masie released his mobile study.
