Learning on the go: how to develop engaging mobile-friendly courses

Mobile data network speeds are much slower and less reliable than your DSL or cable connection at home. Try limiting your file formats to plain text (the king of eLearning formats),DOC or.DOCX,PDF,PPT,JPG,GIF, and.PNG — that is, formats that play equally well on mobile as they do on the desktop, and for which native mobile readers and transcoders exist. Plan for offline use. If you’re designing mobile learning content, you’ll also want to design for offline use.
