Companies are aggressively looking for ways mobile technologies can give them a competitive edge. A significant area in which to find this advantage is in mobile learning and performance improvement. Mobile learning (m-learning) is becoming an important area of focus for many organizations looking to push learning and development to a growing mobile audience that has smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. How do companies take their significant investment in e-learning and convert it for use in a mobile world? There is still a strong belief among people who are not intimately familiar with mobile learning that mobile learning is nothing more than e-learning on a mobile device. But the fact is that proper conversion of content to mobile learning requires instructional design and development skills for mobile learning.
Strategy, media development, deployment strategies, and everything in between will be discussed in this series.

Performance support is about providing your learners with the right information and tools at the right time—the moment they are applying their knowledge in the workplace. Whether it’s blending your learning programs to extend beyond the formal classroom; embedding mobile and performance support; or providing coaching, mentoring, and collaborative learning opportunities to maximize knowledge transfer, a variety of options exist to harness the power of informal learning. These approaches do not have to be costly or complicated. Discover how to implement various performance support tools, strategies, and frameworks to support your training and foster greater performer competence.

Many contemporary job roles require problem-solving and critical thinking skills to take on new and unanticipated workplace challenges. Traditional training that uses a directive approach, while useful for procedural learning, lacks what is needed to build problem-solving skills. In addition, some work skills either cannot be practiced at all on the job (due to safety or other high-risk adverse consequences) or can only be learned over a long period of time.
Scenario-based e-learning presents employees with job-realistic situations that often use multimedia to solve them in a matter of minutes instead of days or weeks. This allows scenario-based e-learning to accelerate job competency.
