Mobile phone & Rapid eLearning explosion
As the mobile phone climbed towards #1 digital device status, educational/training companies realized that learning could come off the page and even off the computer. It could now be transferred to a hand-held device for anywhere, any time learning.
To be effective, though, the nature of the activities had to change. For one thing, mobile screens were (and still are) much smaller than those of computers. For another, people who were becoming used to texting were looking for faster, more interactive tasks that involved clicking and swiping. The development of interactive, online learning is what we now call eLearning, and rapid authoring is how these eLearning courses are created.
Inductions, Toolbox Talks and professional development programs can be cost effectively delivered with the introduction of Rapid eLearning.
