“Mobiles will become the platform of choice for workplace learning delivery (or learning/knowledge management system access),” says Amit Garg, Director of Custom Learning Solutions at Upside Learning. “Learners would be able to access content nuggets (videos, documents, or mini courses) from corporate information systems just when they need them. They will collaborate with colleagues and even contribute their own content using mobiles devices. Performance support will increase many-fold and we will see a lot of training take the shape of performance support. Mobile devices will again be the driver for this change as learners start accessing learning content just when they need it.
Garg recently shared all these insights in a Q&A session with the Sakal Times, a leading Indian newspaper:
“Mobile learning as such can be used for activating knowledge before a classroom (or virtual classroom or even an e-learning session), summarizing (after one of those sessions — delivered soon after the session), recall and just-in-time search support by letting employees search in company’s knowledge databases (wikis, blogs, forums) using their mobiles. Mobile learning platforms, like Upside2Go, can help L&D departments to deliver priority communication, just-in-time and performance support solutions to their learners anywhere, anytime.”
