For example: It’s all about BYOD

With the proliferation of mobile devices in the learning space, it’s only logical that the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) movement will continue to expand, as learners expect the kind of flexibility and consistency learning on their own devices provides them. While some organizations have been hesitant to allow employees the freedom that comes with using personal devices and the associated risks, many are finding the balance between freedom and control for work-related duties, including learning.

Benefits of BYOD for mobile learning include:

Positive work environment: By allowing employees to use their own devices for work and training, you’re automatically appeasing their enthusiasm for using those devices and the apps they spend time on in their personal lives, while freeing them from the laptop or cell phone the organization may have chosen for them that they will always relate back to…work. Doing so creates an experience that’s almost as enjoyable as those on social networks, where they have the freedom to consume and share whatever content they choose. This organically boosts engagement with specific learning content to deliver a boost in knowledge retention and an improvement in overall performance, while satisfying the learners desire for on-the-job development opportunities.

Increased productivity: Eliminating the need to learn on an unfamiliar device gives learners a way to immediately put all of their focus into job-specific training, and access support materials 24/7, giving them the flexibility to choose when it’s most convenient for them to complete their training.

Reduced costs: The organization benefits from reduced overhead and IT costs with a BYOD policy. Additionally, as employees upgrade to the latest devices more frequently than any organization is able, you’re giving learners a way to enjoy your learning content on the latest and greatest technologies – which also provides the organization the flexibility to more deeply leverage advancing technological content changes.
