Mobile is the future of workplace learning. That is far beyond a mere statement, mobile learning is transforming our societies, professional curriculums – even the education system.

It is the intersection of mobile device consumption and eLearningthat incorporates anytime, anywhere resources to deliver meaningful performance support for effective learning and performance improvement.

Tablets are no longer limited to entertainment – such as watching videos or playing games; they are an integral part of organizational L&Dactivities across businesses of all sizes and industries. Tablets are the fastest growing segment in the mobile device category and are predicted to soon eclipse PC sales as well.

Tablet-based Learning provides a unique combination of ‘serious work’ and ‘mobility’ in a single device. What has and continues to evolve is compelling – merging learning with work.

Upside Learning is passionate about mobile and tablet learning. We have been at the forefront of the mobile learning revolution and continue to press on at lightning speed with solutions that resolve our clients mobile learning strategies. Yet we are intrigued by the somewhat pedestrian adoption of mobile learning, which flies in the face of the huge potential it represents. Clearly the potential is tantalizingly easy for most companies to see, however, the path to implementing mobile learning is not without obstacles.

So Why Tablets?

1.      Fastest growing mobile device category

2.      A game changer

3.      Already ubiquitous in the workplace

4.      A natural bridge to all-out enterprise mobile learning

Upside continues to endorse tablets as the first logical step toward mLearning adoption. Tablet, and the iPad in particular, are driving the move of eLearning to HTML5. In my interactions with North American learning leaders, the bulk (approx 75%) of their eLearning projects include tablets (mainly iPads) as primary or secondary devices for delivery.
