Widespread adoption of smartphones and tablets has fueled extensive interest among learning professionals about the use of mobile devices for training delivery. What is the state of mobile learning in 2015? Is growth underway? Are obstacles being surmounted only to give way to new stumbling blocks? Or is mobile learning accruing the sort of success stories learning professionals have hoped to see? To explore those questions and other elements of mobile learning, ATD and i4cp sought insights from learning leaders and professionals worldwide in The Mobile Landscape. Their views, experiences, and strategies offer valuable guidance and examples for those just beginning the mobile learning journey.
ATD and i4cp found that 34 percent of organizations have mobile learning programs. Even among organizations not actively leveraging mobile learning, interest in its potential has—and does—run high. The numbers of learning professionals with mobile programs in development or under serious consideration have consistently matched figures for those in use.
