From E-learning to M-learning

Why has mobile learning become a matter of course for many users and learning organizations? One important reason is because of the preponderance of mobile devices: around 500 million smartphones, 34 million tablets and more than 1 million app downloads in 2011 alone.

Nevertheless, companies and organizations that commission the creation of mobile learning material are still dominated by considerable uncertainties regarding which technologies are used in this creation, which formats are suited to which concrete goals, how m-learning should differ from classic e-learning, and what requires attention when drafting a mobile learning project.

These and other questions are the topic of the new IMC whitepaper entitled “From E-learning to M-learning – Are You Using the Potential of Smartphones, Tablets and Co.?”.

As well as detailed descriptions of various formats such as the native app or the mobile Website, it also describes two concrete case studies showing that different educational objectives and target groups require individually customized course modes and formats.
