The Perfect Mobile Learning Design Strategy

Designing mobile learning lessons can be a challenge for organizations, particularly for those who are new to the mobile learning world. The perfect mobile learning design strategy can be assisted by the utilization and optimization of a microlearning Learning Management System (LMS).

Microlearning LMS’s provide multitudinous benefits to the employees within organizations. To execute the perfect mobile learning design strategy, microlearning tools and strategies must be effectively utilized in each aspect of the learning process.

In this article, we discuss our top tips on the successful design of your ideal mLearning strategy.

Responsive eLearning and The Adoption of a Good Authoring Tool

Your eLearning strategy is optimized when learning modules are responsive and well-designed. In order to achieve this, organizations must adopt a good authoring tool, presenting an array of learning options to authors. SC Training (formerly EdApp)’s authoring tool offers a vast library filled with an array of different templates, which are aesthetic and responsive. Authoring tools with a cloud-based delivery system continue to increase the effectiveness of microlearning modules, as new information is distributed to employees on their own devices instantaneously, regardless of their location.

Concise Information

Information in microlearning modules are the most effective when content is carefully curate and concise, and when relevancy is high. Given the fact that the average human can only withhold 3-5 new pieces of information at any given time, it is important to only release bursts of information that they can retain. Otherwise, the lesson may result in cognitive overload whereby the learner becomes confused or old information is overwritten.

Develop a Strategic Plan

When planning your strategy, it is pivotal to outline corporate objectives that the organization aims to achieve. This not only provides a clear path on which your learning journey begins, but also translates to employees the importance of their training and how there are many more options than just plain old traditional learning.

Make Learning Adaptable

Learning must maintain an aspect of adaptability so that employees and organizations are prepared for changes in trends and patterns in the industry. Learning becomes adaptable when information can be chopped and changed, suiting the needs and preferences of employees. The idea of learning anytime, anywhere provides employees with agile and adaptable learning, giving them freedom and flexibility to progress through their training as they please.
