A Corporate View of Mobile Learning
MetadataShow full item record
In the corporate training environment, acquisition of new skills by employees through training is critically important. This obviously implies that practice-based training programs that enable employees to internalize, and, more importantly, experience, new skills by doing have a significant impact on getting employees started quickly. This paper looks into the opportunity that is presented by mobile devices to deliver on-the-spot (OTS) practice that interlaces guidance with the do-it-yourself experience, particularly for the non-office based distributed workforce. Further, the paper deals with instructional constructs that enrich audio-based mobile learning. These instructional constructs are an attempt to deliver effective and enriching learning experience through short duration mobile lessons and leverage podcasting capabilities for the development of episodic learning.
