If you’ve read recent e-Learning and training blogs providing 2012 predictions, one up-and-coming trend seems to be present in almost all of them: mobile learning. Thanks to devices such as the iPad, iPhone and various Android tablets, it has become increasingly easy to share and view e-Learning content on-the-go – whether you’re at the office, on the bus or at home.
Although mLearning on tablets has already become quite common, this super-hot trend isn’t going anywhere. The Chief Learning Officer article Tablets as a Social Learning Delivery Tool by Tammara Combs offers these interesting mLearning stats from Future Workplace and the IESE Business School:
- By the end of 2011, almost 40 percent of executives plan to utilize media tablets in their learning and development programs.
- During the next four years, 37 percent of HR execs say they will utilize mobile devices not only for learning, but also for coaching and mentoring.
In addition, Combs’ article includes a third impressive mLearning prediction from for the next couple of years. The IT company Gartner predicts that “worldwide sales of tablets will increase from 19.5 million units sold in 2010 to an astounding 208 million units in 2014.” That’s a lot of tablets!
