Ever since we tossed out our flip phones and moved on to internet enabled devices, content consumption has flipped on its head.
Now, we get sold things we don’t need by ‘influencers’ instead of billboards, and increasingly read the news on our phones during our morning commute, rather than flipping through a newspaper. Such is the power of mobile internet.
Millennials, who now occupy the largest segment of the workforce in North America, can’t put their phones aside. They’re virtually glued to them, as illustrated in the chart below.
It wasn’t long, then, that L&D pros realized that offering a learning environment on mobile devices would replicate how their learners consume content outside of work, and increase engagement. As a result, mobile learning, or m-learning, has become an increasingly relevant component of all eLearning programs, and learning management systems in general.
