The Best Resources for Effective Mobile Learning

Effective mobile learning (mLearning) is dependent on various internal and external factors exposed to the company and its processes. Organizations must grapple with these to be able to effectively plan and execute the best training strategies for employees. Effective mLearning is the product of the combination of the best resources, stemming from microlearning practices and learners’ ability to learn on their own devices.

In this article, we outline six of the best resources for optimal mLearning of employees.

1. Microlearning

Microlearning facilitates effective mLearning in organizational training strategies due to its forward-thinking educational approach for the modern learner. If you’re wondering exactly what microlearning is, strap on your seatbelt.

In a nutshell, microlearning encompasses the breakdown of course content into digestible, bite-sized chunks which are released in strategic bursts. Known as spaced repetition, the exposure of information to learners in intervals boosts knowledge absorption and retention, meaning that learners are able to retrieve the data which is stored in their long-term memory.

It is scientifically proven that the average human can only withhold 3-5 pieces of new information at any given time. In other words, the only way to avoid cognitive overload is to feed learners only enough information that they can handle, meaning that is essential content is concise and relevant.

Typically, microlearning can increase the rates of completion from as low as 15 percent to approximately 90 percent! Pioneered for the increased success of learners, mobile-based microlearning is the solution to all of your employee training woes.

2. Good Authoring Tool With Ready-Made, Responsive and Effective Templates

Indications of a good authoring tool for your microlearning strategy are the ease of development, the ability to seamlessly update and distribute new information, and the extent of its responsiveness. SC Training (formerly EdApp)‘s authoring tool utilises the design of aesthetic and engaging microlessons through the provision of interactive and template-driven authoring.

The way we ensure the effectiveness of our microlessons and authoring tool is through the reliance on expert instructional designers for the planning and design of modules.

Our authoring tool has unmatched agility, whereby the distribution of new or updated content is instant, meaning relevant information can be added to lessons from this morning’s news. To do this, the employment of developers are not necessary, meaning that anybody can author your templates for the perfect microlesson.

3. Cloud-Based Delivery System

SC Training (formerly EdApp) uses a cloud-based delivery system which allows organizations to integrate directly. Our cloud feature also enables the translation of lessons into various languages in the case of a distributed, multilingual workforce.

4. Feedback From Learners

Peer Learning is enabled by our authoring tool, meaning that they are able to leave constructive feedback on lessons for the optimum performance of organizational training. It is the catalyst for the increased engagement of learners and the creation of lessons by the user themselves. Being able to heavily relate to course content results in significantly increased retention of knowledge for a holistic understanding of various concepts.


The power of anytime, anywhere is enabled by mLearning and microlearning, suiting the needs and preferences of employees. Meeting and exceeding their expectations boosts productivity and engagement, giving rise to a more informed workforce, contributing to overall corporate success. The cloud-based delivery system enables information to be distributed to learners’ own devices, meaning that they can progress through their training on-the-go!
