How to Implement Mobile Learning despite its Challenges
Mobile learning was once an oddball pedagogy in the eLearning landscape. But it didn’t stay that way after the smartphones came along. It emerged as a flexible and cost-effective solution for personalized learning. A survey by Brandon Hall group in 2016 named mobile learning as one of the top three learning priorities for businesses. Still, it also said that only ten percent of organizations were fully mobile-ready. Most of them are only doing it in bits and pieces. A sizable portion of 24% didn’t even delve into it. And then came the pandemic, bursting everyone’s bubble. The eLearning market exploded as organizations adopting a mobile-first approach while building their eLearning designs increased day by day. But why didn’t they do that before the pandemic? Despite its benefits, mobile learning could still go wrong; if it’s not implemented right. If you’re new to this platform or just considering it, you need to be mindful of a few implementation challenges and how to overcome them. Data Security Confidential or not, data is always a precious asset for any organization. An enormous amount of work goes into protecting it. But using personal devices for mobile learning can expose your data to cyber threats. These attacks usually happen for three reasons. 1.Third-Party Apps: Most third-party apps don’t use secure connections to access data. That means both your user’s data and enterprise data are at risk. According to a 2020 study, sixty-seven percent of malicious app installs were from Google Play Store. 2. Mobile OS does not comply with security software: When your mobile device’s operating systems do not integrate with your IT security software, malicious files can infiltrate your organization’s network. 3. Privacy: Securing personal devices can be tricky sometimes. Your employees may raise concerns regarding their privacy. We also hear stories about stolen and misplaced mobiles opening ways for mischievous tech geniuses.
