Mobile learning has been “on fire” in 2012 and will continue to be so in 2013, according to Craig Weiss, whose firm E-Learning 24/7 provides analyst and advisory services for consumers and vendors.
He believes that tablets using wi-fi Internet access are really going to blossom next year, pointing out that tablet sales around the world are increasing at 48 percent annually, to exceed 450 million units by 2016.
“As such, the next step has to be on/off synch and native apps, because people are downloading and using apps with their mobile devices,” Weiss writes in his blog.
“Forget about smartphones already. People prefer taking courses on tablets. This is going to be a firestorm. You are either doing it or your not. And if you haven’t started yet, you better get going. [And] I’m not just talking about people being able to see your system or take courses via their mobile Web browser. That is only have the solution. I’m talking app.”
