Mobile removes the barriers that historically have bound learning to prescribed times and places. The need to learn has become more urgent and opportunities for learners to interact with content often materialize in unexpected, uncontrolled, and unstructured environments. The burden of technology is to deliver content in a manner that meets contemporary learning requirements.

In this session participants will explore how mobile technology supports continuous learning in ways that improve retention, enhance skill development, and increase speed to proficiency. You will discuss how a device that allows us to quickly access content extends our learning into more human-friendly consumption. You will learn how mobile technology and continuous learning bring us closer to using the knowledge in a “just do it” context. You will leave this session with a number of examples that can be adapted for use in your own organization.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How mobile is the perfect fit for learning—content, consumption, and learners
  • The power of mobile learning as a business imperative that you can’t do without in sales
  • How the use of continuous learning with mobile can improve learner performance and productivity
  • Lessons from case studies demonstrating the use of mobile in continuous learning situations: key learning and business outcomes
