There is no doubt that mobile devices are changing the landscape of corporate computing in general, and of corporate learning and performance support in particular. Mobility has ushered in a new generation of learningon the go, on demand, always connected, highly interactive, and social. Tablet devices, led by enthusiastic adoption of the Apple iPad, are having major impact on enterprise learning, with form factors like larger screens and touch navigation that are conducive to effective consumption of learning content and interactive multimedia that delivers compelling experiences.
State-of-the-art devices and software are only parts of the business mobility equation, however; without content, a tablet or smartphone is simply a portable communication device. The challenge for most companies is that learning content and the processes and practices that surround it have not caught up with new-generation learning. As a result, many organizations find themselves with a significant gap between their existing content processes and the demands of todays learners and knowledge workers. It is becoming critical to close the gapor risk being left behind as leading companies create competitive advantage with mobile learning.
This paper targets learning, business, and IT managers who are responsible for or involved in their organizations strategies for delivering content on mobile devices. We consider the rapid evolution of mobile learning in the enterprise and the implications for learning content creation, management, and publishing. We look at the gap between current processes and new-generation learning requirements. We show readers how an XML approach based on reusable content components can deliver operational benefits, such as cost efficiencies and rapid time to mobile deployment, as well as compelling learning experiences. Our goal is to help managers understand that a content strategy rather than a project mentality is the only way to take full advantage of the business performance benefits and productivity gains that are possible with mobile learning.
