Keys to Success for Implementing Mobile Learning in the Enterprise

Webinars Comments (0)

On Wednesday, September 19, I get the privilege of speaking to members of HR.com who register for my webinar, “mLearning Straight Talk.” It will be my first time speaking to this organization and I am looking forward to it. It will be interesting to hear how many of the attendees have the charge of implementing learning to their enterprises. Not all companies or organizations have a “T&D” or “L&D” department and so the critical task of training employees falls under the HR umbrella. This can be a daunting task especially when a new learning platform is introduced such as mobile learning.

HR.comThat’s because the question is not if a company or organization will adopt mobile learning. The question is when.

The need for training content on mobile devices is quickly becoming a critical component of enterprise learning efforts. In today’s competitive business environment, companies are looking for ways to be more efficient and productive and do more work in less time. When designed and utilized correctly, mLearning can provide some of those results. And employees are asking for content on mobile devices so they can take their training on their own schedule and learn at their own pace.

There is no doubt mobile learning is here to stay.

That being said, many organizations are ill-equipped to undertake a mLearning initiative because they are unprepared to take on the host of considerations that need to be faced. From strategy to concept to development to delivery, countless decisions need to be made to increase the probabilities of a successful deployment. Added to that, the implementation can’t be a drawn-out process. New technologies and learning approaches are all changing and growing at a rapid pace. Being slow of a foot can also mean falling behind the competition. The fast-moving environment means that any learning professional charged with implementing mLearning needs to be fully equipped.

mLearning Straight Talk” is a comprehensive overview of the mobile learning world and the wide scope of different devices, new design standards, learning strategies, instructional design requirements, and contextual considerations, just to name a few. Without experience in these areas, a learning professional can be left scrambling to meet the expectations of their stakeholders and target audience.

Drawing on the first-hand experience and real-world examples, the presentation will cover important topics such as winning over stakeholders, mLearning process, building prototypes, mLearning vs. eLearning, security, MDM and MAM, and how to build a mobile learning team. Attendees will be able to assess their own readiness to implement mLearning and grow in their own mobile learning knowledge. The information can be applicable to a learning professional that is just starting out or someone who is already utilizing mobile learning and wants to continue to become more “mobile smart.”

Join me on Wednesday, Sept. 19, as I bring my mLearning Straight Talk to HR.com members. Whether you’re a learning professional, executive manager, or another decision-maker or stakeholder, you will be interested in this presentation if you are responsible for delivering information to your target audience on a mobile platform.

Throughout this session, you will learn…

  • how to form a team and build a process
  • how to evangelize mLearning and get stakeholder “buy-in”
  • instructional and interactive design challenges
  • how to better understand testing, analytics, and security
  • methods for determining the best deployment solution

Attendees will have more confidence to leave the comfort zone of existing learning approaches and take on a mobile learning initiative within their enterprise that integrates with their blended learning curriculum.

I hope you can join me and attend the webinar. Mobile learning doesn’t need to be intimidating. It can actually be an opportunity to reach your learners in a new and powerful way. You just need to ask the right questions and follow a sound strategy. Come to learn how and I’ll see you there>>
