Compared to the traditional methods of learning with pen and paper, we have come a long way with eLearning. With the advent of technology and the internet, learning has become easier, advanced and effective. Learning online on computers and other electronic devices is more convenient for people working in business organizations. Even business organizations find it convenient to deliver the training materials in this way as it is easier to track and scale the course on electronic devices. The recent fad in eLearning is mLearning i. e. mobile learning.
With the explosion of mobile phones and smartphones, people have centred their world on these smaller devices and learning is no exception to this. Learning on phones or other mobile devices is very convenient for people working as they can access the courses anywhere and anytime they want. Mobile learning companies share a lot of expertise and knowledge in devising these learning materials and here’s a quick guide to hire them.
How to Hire Mobile Learning Companies?
1. Learning on the Go
The first thing to ensure while hiring mobile learning companies is that they know how to devise mLearning projects that are suited to learning on the go. People are always connected to their phone and it is very convenient if they can access training materials wherever they want immediately. If a person wants to complete a course during his commute to work, the course should be designed to support this desire.
2. User Friendliness
It is a well-known fact that eLearning and mLearning are way more flexible than the traditional methods of learning. Mobile learning companies must ingrain this fact in their hearts and minds and develop learning materials that are user friendly to the core. The learning content should be informative and interactive at the same time, guiding the user at every step and making it easy for him/her to get acquainted to learning on a mobile device.
Rather than having a separate device for mLearning, it is only practical that each employee can access these courses on their respective phones. Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is practiced everywhere now and the mobile learning companies you intend to hire must be aware of this fact as well. Hence ensure they will develop courses and learning materials that comply with BYOD.
Before you simply accept the deliverables, it is wise to wait for a while and put the materials into test. You can follow the wait-and-see-approach to see if the course has any bugs, any lag issues, anything that the users are finding inconvenient and so on. Ask if the mobile learning company will provide a prototype before delivering the actual mLearning course so that you can test it and revise it if needed.
5. Previous Work
Lastly, the most basic and most important requisite before hiring mobile learning companies, going through their previous works and talking to their previous clients. It will give you a complete picture of the company you are choosing, their working style and the quality they will deliver.
