1. Benefits of Mobile Training Improved retention of knowledge due to personalized instruction.
A mobile generation requires mobile training. We work on the run these days, using mobile tools, so it makes sense that we should get job-related training in the same way. But organizations aren't adapting their training methods to reflect the mobile dynamic, says Gary Woodill, author of the new book, The Mobile Learning Edge: Tools and Technologies for Developing Your Teams (McGraw Hill/available now). Some companies struggle to make a solid business case for mobile learning. Yet such training can improve the way professionals approach documentation, collaboration, research and data collection and other tasks. In addition to providing "how to" information, Woodill helps managers and employees evaluate what kind of mobile training would maximize the potential of their teams. The author is senior analyst at Brandon Hall Research, a firm focused on workplace learning that counts among its companies such as IBM, Bank of America, KPMG, and PriceWaterhouseCoopers.
