Mobile eLearning Update
You need to get your Mobile eLearning program up and running now, pronto, lickety-split!!!!
A recent survey of just over 1,600 business technology buyers, conducted by ChangeWave Research, found that 22 percent of respondents were planning to buy tablet computers during the second quarter of 2012. Bottom line…the iPad is not a fad and will have aÂ HUGEÂ effect on how you deliver eLearning in the very near future.
As a Learning and Development professional, you need to be able to deliver Mobile eLearning curriculum to Apple devices. Ideally you will have your Mobile eLearning program implemented before you get the calls, emails, texts, smoke signals from your students asking why they canâ€™t take their eLearning on their iPads.
Stuff you need to know about Mobile eLearning
1. Your Flash based eLearning content won’t play on the iPad or Â iPhone
Â You get the picture of a Lego you see here…
2. Delivering Mobile eLearning content to mobile devices is different. For example, you canâ€™t take an eLearning course on an iPhone as the screen is much smaller.
Donâ€™t Panic! All is well, thanks to the new crop of authoring tools that will publish eLearning content in mutlipleÂ formats. These tools allow you to publish your content in Flash (the format that plays on computers) and HTML5 the new format that plays on mobile devices as well as computers).Â . Other options include screen size outputs that are optimized for iPad and iPhone.
