"M Learning "or "Mobile Learning" refers to any learning that does not take place at the person's computer. In practice this means learning on your tablet or smart phone.
Most smart phones have browsers which can run e-learning and their respective learning management systems but this creates a whole new set of problems. The small screen dimensions make reading standard 14pt text impossible on a smart phone and buttons become hard to differentiate and click on cleanly. In short a whole new approach needs to be taken to tackle m-learning effectively.
e-Learning WMB have developed a Learning Management System add-on which runs all courses through Apps available on the App Store or Google Play. These Apps have simplified interfaces to make accessing the e-learning easy on the smaller screens, and the e-learning with its large text and use of video presenters and voiceovers, make it a joy to use.
Example M-Learning Project
The following example e-Learning project demonstrates how m-learning works:
The m-learning course has been downloaded onto the smartphone. The user can simply delete the App when they have have completed the training as the training records will all be stored on the cloud.
The user can choose to simply run the course or record data in the Learning Management System (you need an account on Open Elms to do this.)
The user logs in using the same user name and password they have been supplied to access their e-Learning on their PC.
The course is selected and it can then be run on the device.
e-Learning WMB's unique style of e-learning development ideally suits the smartphone interface. Seeing a presenter walk across your phone has a sort of magic to it. This is training that won't easily be forgotten.
To view e-learning on your mobile, visit the App Store and search for "e-Learning WMB". Our e-learning apps are all free - you need to pay to store data or customisation work on the app - download any course to see how we can get your workforce learning on the move.
Commissioning an M-Learning Project
The same development process is used to create e-learning as it is to produce m-learning - this means you are effectively getting twice as much for your e-learning budget. Any of our existing courses or your next bespoke course can simply be saved as a smartphone App and then is freely available for your users to download onto their Apple or Android Devices. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how we can build your company's next smartphone App.
