5 Ways Mobile Learning Impacts Corporate Training

Published 10 months ago by Nitika Duggal

Multiple things impact the productivity and performance of a business. Among these, employee performance itself is quite significant. Employees are as much of an asset to a business as anything monetary. Therefore, businesses invest in corporate training to constantly improve the performance of employees.

One of the major changes in learner behavior is the increased use of mobile phones to access information online. This has led to the inclusion of Mobile learning or mLearning in the corporate learning strategy.

In this post, we will discuss the impact of Mobile Learning or mLearning on corporate training:

Flexible Learning Process

The present generation demands working on their own terms and learning is no exception. We can see the same pattern in other business aspects as well. For example, business organizations are now providing flexible work hours and remote working.

Mobile learning or mLearning offers employees to learn anywhere, anytime. They find this more feasible as learning resources on a mobile device can be accessed anytime and anywhere. It fits perfectly with the ‘on the go’ lifestyle of man millennials.

Employee Collaboration

If employees can learn together by sharing knowledge and opinions, it makes learning not just efficient but fun too. Mlearning, when coupled with collaboration tools, offers opportunities for employees to engage in a collective learning process. It gives rise to a social and friendly environment at the workplace while making learning possible at the same time. It is easier for learners to raise questions on a discussion forum and start a conversation on a social platform about the training.

Better Learning Technologies

Traditional methods of corporate training are not ineffective. However, the introduction of Mlearning is now overcoming the gaps in these methods. Not all employees are skilled to retain all that is taught in a training. Now, with information available on mobile devices, they can not only reinforce knowledge but also access important information when they really need it. For example, a salesman can access a product’s information on the move in case a new feature is added.

Productive Learning

One of the drawbacks of traditional corporate learning is it requires employees to take out extra time to attend training. Even that out of their actual work hours at times. This reduces their regular productivity. The efficiency of corporate training could be increased if more is taught in fewer hours. This is possible with Mlearning. It eliminates the need for reaching a specific training venue to attend training. With mLearning, delivering information is easier with videos, slideshows, applications, and more mobile tools.

Personalized Learning

Mlearning does not only offer employees a personalized training experience but may actually save money for the organization. Employee development can require expensive resources. On the other hand, employees can have their own smartphones to receive training. It provides a comfortable experience for employees. Also, the saved cost can be invested in more training modules than just gathering the physical resources to make them possible.

Conclusion

The bottom line is that Mlearning creates positive opportunities for corporate learning. Your employees don’t have to feel burdened with their development. Easier and accessible training modules will make them better motivated to learn. Also, it requires less training expenses from the business’s capital. Therefore, learning through mobile devices is an effective solution to increase employee and business productivity and performance without getting financially overwhelmed. Collectively, all of these benefits create better possibilities for a competitive advantage.
