mLearning, or mobile learning, is training delivered through mobile devices. As the access and popularity of mobile devices continues to grow, organizations around the world are turning to mobile delivery of instruction as a way to increase the reach and flexibility of their training programs. Today mobilde devices give participants uninterrupted and immediate access to learning wherever they are. Thus, organizations that use mLearning provide their workforce the ability to be part of learning anywhere and at any time.

 What are the differences between eLearning and mLearning?

The fundamental difference between the two forms of training delivery is the technology used. eLearning is designed to be delivered on internet connected computers and iPads/tablets, while mLearning courses are designed for all mobile devices, including smart phones.
In most cases, mLearning experiences are built to augment more robust e-learning courses, not replace them. Because the design of mLearning courses are limited by the screen size and resolution of mobile devices, these courses are often rich in media that combines text, graphics and audio, such as videos.
