The trend evidently shows that E-Learning has matured to M-Learning which is Mobile Learning, such modernization of the e-learning and with the popular adoption to smart phones have opened its horizons to the convenience of M-Learning. At the most recent times, the smartphones are the best fit to the ultimate collaboration and they do wonders in the palm. Just as we dive into the topic let us discuss over the education transformation.
We have just conceded through the various digital learning materials which include the eBook, eLearning and even the virtual classroom. The technology has transformed these to a greater extent and now it is seen as the power in our hands and we are able to gather the required information at the fingertips.
Why should it be called Smart Phones any more…when it can do much more in knowledge and learning? Ponder!
Mobile learning in simple terms is accessing the materials in mobile and learning on the go, it is highly personalized and just don’t judge it in general, for eg. When you access a website in mobile you would see the content structured to the device size and keeps it feasible enough to click and go but at the same time the mobile learning content is designed with great website responsive structural management which allows the learner to gather the information in a short span and keep up the desire of serving with the great understanding. This is a strong edge over the e-learning.
Should we call it just-in-time knowledge? May be still better…
Most people access it for the quick learning and instant information. Students seem to utilize in a better way while the corporates and executives would go for a quick refresh of the same. Particularly, for students, it works wonders as it is easier for them to adapt to their knowledge gaps and by focusing on the chapters that have challenged them makes it productive.
Real time interactions to the huge group!
It is interesting to know the experience of each other student, finding the strategy of the group members of the same age, attempting to crack the concept and derive the solution. When there are more interactions over the topic, it becomes better for the retention and does take better participation for the complete understanding.
We have known the disadvantages of technology and innovation, but now when you see the students outsmart due to better technology, should we take back the uttered statement.
How good is the M-Learning structured?
An effective and the best M-learning creation includes the videos, some textual data, and the images. It provided the best knowledge and we do provide the feature to be able to read, repeat, record, list, and mind-map. The comprehensive learning can be achieved with tests, assessments and detailed questions. Some innovative platform has also simulations and the listens to the role playing and evaluations through games and animations. These are supported to demonstrate and illustrate the concept and teach them how to interpret and apply.
It is important for us to create and push learning to people and not push people to learn.
The future of M-Learning is predictable as we see the complete revolutionary change in the cloud technology. The best of all is the learning engagement in M-Learning, it cuts through the mundane of learning as it has engagement booster coming up new and trendy each time. The technology is beyond the normal web page and it steps ahead with innovation. Few of the interesting engagements are pop-up challenges which set count-down time to crack the answer, one to one challenge to the peer, reward, and points to gain and accumulate for recognition.
The future of M-Learning:
Getting so fond over the engagement and the interaction with the mobile learning is the first step to overlook desktops. You can see the trend jump to the wearable learning, as we see the wearable technology to boost. Secondly, the personalized learning gets into the highlight as it delivers the exact search of the learner. The innovations are endless, while it may to more to speak about right the next day, add to the comments session and let’s discuss more.
