  • Discover what might be the right kind of mobile technologies for your company With The Mobile Learning Edge you'll go beyond applications and content and be able to create engaging and productive mobile learning for your team. According to a recent study, there's one mobile device for every two people in the world, and the technology making these devices smarter and more connected is improving almost daily. The real revolution is that mobile learning releases learners from the classroom where they are immobilized, and allows them to learn at "anytime, anyplace." In The Mobile Learning Edge, Dr. Gary Woodill outlines the most effective methodologies for training and engaging employees on the move and takes the person out of the classroom, while keeping learners connected to the information they need at all times. The Mobile Learning Edge features:
  • Information on the social media and enabled devices that can serve your mobile learning
  • Concrete strategies for how your business can use mobile learning to train, educate, and instruct employees anywhere
  • Pointers on information gathering and analysis on the fly

  • Comprehensive strategies for anticipating future mobile learning needs and developments You'll find a wealth of information about the history of this emerging field, retrieving information, methods for learning, applications, uses, and experiences—and how to put it all together to build a mobile learning system that's right for your team. Using case studies, Woodill shows how you can emulate the successes of corporations like Nike, Accenture, and Merrill Lynch in using micro-blogging, cloud computing, mobile gaming, intermodal mashups, virtual worlds, collective intelligence, and other mobile learning platforms to take your business's recruitment, training, communication, and collaboration functions to the next level.
