Learners show equal success on the same courses, whether they access the courses on their desktop or on a mobile device. That’s one of the key determinations made by a recent survey.
“But mobile learners achieving same outcomes in half the time,” CEO Donna Wells of Mindflash adds. “And providing mobile course access is likely to increase percent of learners who reference course content after they initially complete the course.”
The research also emphasizes that shorter courses are better when learners are accessing them via mobile devices. Wells suggests that course designers break up courses into a series of shorter lessons, which should require sequential passing.
She also suggests that learning professionals “consider swapping PowerPoint for Microsoft Word and increasing usage of video to improve experience and success among mobile learners; to correlate training outcomes with business outcomes; and to integrate LMS data with CRM or financial systems data, if at all possible.
