As more and more people use their phones every day and all the time, it seems obvious to utlise that for learning. However, moving from a computer screen to a phone is not just a case of making the same website available. There are some other things to remember – here are a few (maybe you can add to this list?):
- the screen is much smaller, so some things won’t be readable; people don’t like to have to spend time zooming in to the screen
- being able to pick up where you left off is more important than ever – learners are fitting in their learning in between other things and might just have 10 minutes but want to continue easily
- having checklists or diary items will help to keep on track
It’s created for marketing ideas, but some of the principles of mobile learning will transfer to any other learning content.
