Did you know, we look at or utilize our smartphone device 221 times in one day?
Undoubtedly, mobile usage exceeds desktop usage and here’s how:
In total, 80% of individuals have a smartphone, and 27% utilize only this smartphone for digital connectivity.
This means that even if you have a web-based learning center, most of your employees are accessing it through their smartphones only.
So, why not make it convenient for employees?
Over the years, mobile-based learning has proved its importance and efficiency in improving overall learning and training structure at the workplace. If you offer two types of training options to your employees — mobile-based learning and classroom learning — it is highly likely for most of the employees to choose mobile learning.
At the same time, it is necessary to remember that mobile-based learning is not a replacement for e-learning. It should be viewed as an enhancement to e-learning.
Today, we will discuss how mobile-based learning nuggets can help you improve the employee engagement in your workplace.
Benefits Employees Can Achieve from Mobile Learning Nuggets
- Extended Training
Think of mobile learning as an extension to workplace training programs. The employee can take their training anywhere they go. For instance, an employee who is visiting another city for business can easily access the learning material through their smartphone.
Even if you opt for a blended learning approach, you can deliver face-to-face training and ask the employees to learn some of the topics as part of a self-learning exercise. In this way, mLearning acts as an extended learning program which can be continued even outside the office environment.
- Immediate Access
A study revealed that 46% of employees use their phones in bed for mobile learning and 52% use their smartphones for learning after waking up.
Offering immediate access to relevant data through mobile-based learning offers the flexibility of on-the-go learning. This means that your employees can immediately access training content anytime they want — when they are commuting or taking a tea break in the office.
- Collaborative Learning
Discussion forums and chat groups can be included to the mLearning platform as part of a collaborative learning process. This helps employees to share their doubts with each other and get them resolved; this group effort helps everyone to learn something new.
- Instant Feedback
Since employees use their smartphones several times in a day, the feedback loop is accelerated. The training manager can offer instant responses to employee queries and offer advice on how to enhance learning. Whenever an employee makes a mistake, the training manager can point out the errors and give an opportunity to enhance personal growth and learning.
