Are you looking for ways to deliver quick hands-on training? Or looking for ways to deliver just-in-time performance support to your employees to increase their performance? If Yes, then here is the solution – Mobile Learning.
Mobile learning or M-learning shifts the focus by providing learning anywhere, anytime, and on any device, enabling learners to learn at their own pace.
With the ever-changing learner profiles, learning modes, device preferences, and maturing tools & technology, learners are leaning more toward mobile learning. Mobile learning is flexible, making it an exciting and effective learning format for learners.
Here are 3 simple ways to boost employee performance using mobile learning.
Use m-Learning for:
1. Performance Support:
Mobile learning delivers quick hands-on training, just-in-time learning, and on-the-go support to learners at the moment of need. You can use this to reinforce learning and to support and guide employees. When an employee needs to apply what has been learned, or needs to fix or solve a problem when something goes wrong, he can quickly refer to that particular material on his mobile. For good and efficient performance support, it is important that the mobile learning platform is convenient, user-friendly, and relevant.
2. Overcome Traditional Training Challenges:
You can use mobile learning when you want to learn a new skill or expand upon a previous skill. Usually, traditional training sessions take hours and hours to complete, but through mobile learning we can provide learners the flexibility to learn through different learning paths. We can also support learning as a continuum rather than discrete sessions.
3. Digitize ILT:
Digitizing ILT programs paves the way for efficient interaction techniques to boost employees’ learning. It facilitates communication between instructors and participants using the mobile medium. You can start implementing mobile learning from pre-workshop exercises to assessments.
These are some of the ways to boost performance of employees through m-learning. However, before you begin your mLearning quest, audit your current eLearning course and repurpose it. Then, ensure that you identify the gaps with your training methods and see how mobile learning would fill these gaps effectively. Finally, make sure that mobile is the perfect platform that fits.
