Yes. Our courses are built with responsive designs, so they can adapt to multiple device sizes, whether it’s desktop, laptop, smartphone, or tablet.
This is particularly useful for learners who are ‘on the go’, or who work in environments where desktop computers are not available.
A recent forecast stated that around 80 per cent of the world’s population (that’s over 6 billion people) are now smartphone users. So it’s no surprise to discover that mobile phones are widely used in training – a trend that is certain to grow significantly in the future.
Why are learners more motivated and engaged in mobile learning courses?
Well, for a start, mobile learning eliminates the need for learning to happen at a particular time and place, or on a specific device.
Mobile learning seamlessly integrates into peoples’ daily routines, making it easier for them to stay on track with the courses, resulting in increased course completion and knowledge retention.
Learners can also use mobile courses to recall information while at work, so they can perform their job better. For example, when someone is about to perform a task, or check a piece of machinery, or give a product sales pitch, they can quickly check their mobile phone and run a short course to help them brush up on the key facts.
