Just like with any new project, a mobile learning implementation program needs a thorough assessment of the current training situation and the tools being used to deliver training. Once you’re done with the initial setup, the next step is to get down to the root of the m-learning problem.

Six ideas in search of a problem to solve?


For years everyone was saying they wanted to talk about mobile – but there were no users willing or able to use mobile devices for learning. ​The elearning industry historically has had a habit of putting the cart before the horse. Gamification has also been talked about for a long time, without anybody even being clear what they mean by it, let alone being able to point to examples of it being used in a corporate learning context.

Is This a Problem with E-Learning Today?

Rapid eLearning

In addition, courses have technical requirements and need to be designed to accommodate mobile and accessibility needs. I ran across two articles recently that made me wonder about the state of today’s e-learning courses. The first article was on how websites are all starting to look the same. They did a study to confirm it. In the second article, the author makes some good points on how a lot of this new design is sterile and lacks personality.

mLearning more than mobile elearning?

Clark Quinn

Someone tweeted about their mobile learning credo, and mentioned the typical ‘mlearning is elearning, extended’ view. Mobile, paper, computers, voodoo, whatever technology works. And I can see the case for that; that mlearning in education is about using mobile to help people learn, not perform. Koreen Pagano wrote this nice post separating Common Core teaching versus assessment, which goes along with my beliefs about the value of problem solving.

Y A (Yet Another) Misleading Mobile Marketing Post

Clark Quinn

So there was a post on 5 mobile learning strategies. I’m a wee bit opinionated on mobile learning, so I thought I’d have a look. Worse, it’s really not specific to mobile, and, therefore,…misleading. But this (differentiated) is not unique to mobile, it’s good advice over all! Moreover, using video appropriately again isn’t unique to mobile. And another statement that’s not unique to mobile: look to social learning.

On a less formal basis, I want to suggest that another area where we need a little more light and a little less heat (and smoke) is mobile. We’re doing a lot wrong when it comes to mobile.

Watch Out For These Trends in Mobile Learning: 2015 And Beyond

Origin Learning

Global mobile data traffic grew 69 percent in 2014 and was nearly 30 times the size of the entire global Internet in 2000. Mobile video traffic exceeded 50 percent of total mobile data traffic for the first time in 2012. Mobile network (cellular) connection speeds grew 20 percent in 2014. These are just some excerpts from Cisco’s Visual Networking Index: Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast Update for 2014 to 2019, but they clearly prove a point.

Goin’ Mobile

The indicators are clear: the world is going mobile. Mobile subscriptions in the developed world are flattening out, not from lack of interest, but from saturation. People are accessing the internet more from mobile devices than desktops, and some people only access the internet via mobile! And when a small company like Google says that they’re designing for mobile first and the desktop is an afterthought, it is safe to say mobile is on the move.

The Practice of Mobile Learning

I tend to look at mobile learning in two distinct contexts – first as a tool to meet a learning need, second as a learning content delivery platform. While these two contexts are implicitly linked, it helps to look at them separately to understand how mobile technology can actually benefit learning. When I think about mobile learning, I like to refer to Dr. Conrad Gottfredson’s Five Moments of Learning Needs: • When Learning for the First Time.

Why is problem solving at home so much easier (and more productive) than problem solving at work?


Sounds like a long-overdue, logical approach to problem solving at work. That’s a pretty common way to solve life problems nowadays, right?
