Insights: Organizations need multi-device learning solutions

This post provides on my feedback to the Studying Concepts 2012 Evaluation produced by Kineo for e.learning age publication. The 4th of the ten 'insights' in review is that ‘Organisations need multi-device learning solutions'.

It used to be that cellular learning was regarded as something quite personal from e-learning - the same route for learning technological innovation. The abilities that a lot of people have had over the past svereal years of working with high top quality cellular cell cellular phones (my third development iPad has the same top quality as my 27" iMac!) is that you can do most of the same aspects when you're shifting around using a touchscreen show technological innovation system as you can on your pc PC. Actual, you only usually get one show on-screen at a moment, but as far as learning cares about you that's a big advantages. Whatever you get in touch with them - pc pcs, laptop computer pcs, tablets, mobile phones, even manufacturers wii - they're all pcs and gradually they operate in a very similar techniques.

Buyers of e-learning solutions no problem about the technical problems associated with creating content functions across all these techniques. And, quite seriously, why should they? It is quite cost-effective that they ask that any content that's developed should concentrate on any system currently available or likely to get to the next several of years. Not that a lot of information mill yet using cellular cell cellular phones that much for learning. But they will, if only because previously adopters - of tablets in particular - in most organizations, are older experts. It is very de rigeur that they create an iPad when shifting around, and there's always a chance they'll want to take a look at the latest company e-learning system, if only to look at how they look in the beginning film. If they figure out that it will not execute they'll need solutions.

So how do e-learning developers respond to this demand? One way is to use an posting system that will result to HTML5, which in idea at least will concentrate on most devices (although not if your online company still using IE6). This may mean you end up with different versions for different devices, which is not quite meeting the objective.

Another solution is for making content that smartly adapts to it on which it is being regarded, something that Kineo itself is innovative. Delicate HTML is now quite common for important websites, which framework content according to the screen sizing, but certainly not traditional e-learning. One of the interesting side effects of this is the need end from the slide show style and to agree to scrolling websites (see my post on the return again of scrolling and why this should not be a cause for concern).

Having lately suggested that e-learning is (nearly) dead, I'd have to acknowledge that m-learning is going the same way. Our customers don't identify a difference, so why should we?
