There's an App for that!
Training, v48 n5 p36-37 Sep-Oct 2011
Important as training the sales force is, mobile training apps are being used for much more. Visual Eyes Inc., for example, has developed training apps for the U.S. military's combat medical teams that detail specific medical procedures, such as controlling hemorrhaging. Other apps, developed for corporations and government agencies, pass along core values, institutional knowledge, and best practices. Organizations also are using mobile apps to manage the path or sequence of training, to verify that training occurred, and to help users maintain training records throughout their careers. One of the major trends in apps development is the recent emphasis on making apps more entertaining as they move from supplementary training to primary training. Traditional training won't go away but will have remote options that are freed from the constraints of time zones and Internet access, making training truly an anytime, anywhere activity.
