Did you know that the mobile phone market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 22.9% from 2020-2027?
The sheer size and extent of these varied statistics reveal that the proliferation, acceptability, and usage of mobile-based devices are set to grow by leaps and bounds!
Enterprises that are willing to expand their business footprint, enrich their employee performance, and enhance their workforce commitment, have begun to use mobile learning as the primary source of delivering training. With its multimedia usage, continuous engagement, content flexibility, and quick outcomes – mobile learning ensures that your employee learning curve remains dynamic, distinctive, and steady.
Here are a few mobile learning benefits that can easily help you gain an edge over all your competitors.
1. Uninterrupted & flexible learning
With mobile learning, your employees can retrieve whatever training content they want, whenever they want it. Content can be delivered in a variety of formats such as podcasts, videos, and eBooks. Employees can go through the learning material at their own pace, helping them learn and understand better.
2. Greater retention rates
Sitting in a training room and being given instructions in a conventional, face-to-face setting, the amount of information that can be effectively delivered and retained remains quite controlled.
On the other hand, in a mobile learning scenario, where a large amount of information is delivered in a chunk-sized and concise manner, employees find it easier to retain the information.
Higher retention rates further drive course completion and thus facilitate enhanced performance.
3. Just-in-time support
Another advantage of having the training content available on mobile devices is that employees can refer to it immediately in case of any doubt while on the job. Usually, they would wait and get their doubts clarified by the SME or the instructor, but mobile-based learning content eliminates this delay.
Thus, it improves employee productivity by offering just-in-time information and providing learners with the right help at the right time.
4. Swift & instant feedback
In an instructor-led training program, employees get detailed feedback about their performance only after their basic training process has been completed.
The applications used to deliver mobile-based learning have features where employers can create assessments for the learners, where they define the correct and incorrect answers. When learners complete the assessments, they receive immediate feedback, and can gauge their own progress. These assessments can be added after every module or even in between the training modules so as to keep the learners engaged.
5. Collaborative learning experience
Mobile learning offers a collaborative and continuous learning experience. With the help of online discussion forums, note sharing and instant messaging features, learners can connect with each other and learn in a collaborative environment.
This ensures that there’s a human touch even while learning digitally. Especially in today’s times, when employees are mostly working remotely, it is important to establish a connection with them so as to maintain engagement.
To sum up
With changing times, more and more small, medium, and large scale organizations will begin to rely on mobile devices for training their workforce. Such devices act as a catalyst for enhancing employee performance, providing unhindered access to learning material, and reducing training costs. As a result, employees would be able to leverage the benefits offered by mobile learning and derive a unique and enriched learning experience.
