There is no question that mobile devices are changing corporate learning forever. However, this doesn’t mean classroom-based training or formal e-learning courses are going away, it just means the mobile movement is demanding companies to rethink their training strategies and to create learning programs especially for mobile devices.
“Within the next five years, we are going to be not just changing but transforming how we train and educate based on mobile,” predicts Daniel Burrus, chief executive officer of Burrus Research Associates Inc., a Hartland, Wis.-based consulting firm. ”Mobile learning is a bigger deal than most organizations realize. It represents an amazing disruption and opportunity in how we educate.”
