Realizing the Promises of Mobile Learning
Wagner, Ellen D.
Journal of Computing in Higher Education, v20 n2 p4-14 Nov 2008
This article considers the current status of mobile learning and discusses a number of trends that are driving toward enterprise mobility, a state of technological readiness where users have full access to resources regardless of physical location. Enterprise mobility is discussed as one of several key considerations at the core of a successful and sustainable mobile learning strategy. The need for an ecosystem that supports, manages, and maintains content for learning and performance support that plays on mobile devices is also discussed. Finally, thoughts on the value of aligning investments in enterprise mobility and productivity improvement with the distribution of engaging performance support are offered for consideration.
