Using mLearning in blended designs solves five distinct issues: (1) professional networking needs blocked by time, space, organizational, and geographical boundaries; (2) reduced travel for professional development programs; (3) inadequate assessment or understanding of learning transfer rates; (4) the learning preferences or needs of a time-strapped audience and the generational shifts; and (5) creating a rich library of distinct learning assets for just-in-time needs for the innovative organization.

Participants in this session will learn in-depth about the innovative use of mLearning in multiple blended designs. These designs allow organizations and associations to create communities of practice so professionals can develop and/or share best practices even when separated by various boundaries. MLearning, by definition, answers the learning needs of time-strapped professionals who need information in easily accessible formats, and as part of a blended program, provides the ability to track learning transfer rates and thus create meaningful return-on-investment data.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The components of multiple blended learning designs
  • Creative uses of mLearning to assist in tracking transfer of learning rates
  • How to implement blended learning to create communities of practice in ways that align with organizational strategy
  • About repurposing learning assets for emerging learning gaps
  • How to create a learning platform that addresses the learning needs of time-strapped professionals and emerging learning preferences
