Mobile learning may have gotten off to a slow start, but it seems the trend is now getting some momentum. The latest Sierra-Cedar HR Systems Survey report shows mobile-enhanced process adoption grew by 30 percent last year compared to 2013. Survey respondents plan to double their use of mobile this year compared to 2014. A white paper released by Tagoras, a technology consulting firm in Carrboro, N.C., finds 89 percent of 200 respondents to a survey for its Association Learning + Technology report saying their organizations offer some form of e-learning, and a third of them (37 percent) offer a mobile version for at least some of that content. Another 28 percent said they had plans to offer mobile learning this year. One of the most interesting mobile-learning trends witnessed by Steve Fiehl, chief innovation officer at New York-based e-learning provider CrossKnowledge, has been the “mobile first” strategy: Conceptualizing learning experiences for mobile devices first, rather than designing them for the PC and then transferring them to mobile.
