From the Past to the Future – Learning the New Way

Have you ever thought of how your grandparents, and great grandparents and even great great grandparents learned a new skill or gained new knowledge?

Who taught them these new skills?

You probably have more in common with your ancestors than you think!

Historically, courses have been offered not in a classic classroom setting but through correspondence schools which dates back to the late 18th century (for ex. learning through materials sent via mail). The trend of learning from a “distance” has grown in numbers throughout the 19th century and until today.

Yesterday’s mail system is today’s mobile learning… at your fingertips.

In our modern age, every time new technology is introduced, such as the postal system, mass printing, radio, television and the internet, courses grow in popularity and registration peaks.

In our modern age, when a new technology is introduced, the public’s interest grows in popularity and the need to understand the technology peaks. The advantage that modern learning has is its ability to reach an unlimited amount of people at once.

Local municipalities and governments, as well as higher learning institutions, have all jumped on the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) bandwagon and are able to offer courses to students of all ages from around the world. The entities such as Udacity and Coursera have opened the doors to skill, technology and trade learning.

But do people finish the courses and succeed?

The success rate and completion rate are not the numbers you would think they should be.

Why isn’t the “traditional” eLearning working?

Introducing The New Learner!

And it all starts in a new type of classroom

…The Mobile Learning Arena

According to Pew Research, 64% of American adults now own a smartphone. This makes learning more flexible and consumable in microbytes. The new mobile classroom is filled with up-to-date technology and appeals to the global and social trends that are a part of this new modern world.

Mobile learning (mLearning) and in turn, game-based and simulation-based learning, are growing and gaining traction as more effective ways to learn and transfer knowledge.

Mobile Learning is Winning

Cisco predicts that the U.S. market for mobile learning will grow from $7.98 billion in 2015, to $37.6 billion by 2020.

All told, a regimented diet of strict rules and linear learning can over-stuff trainees and leave them feeling bloated and overwhelmed. But by slicing training down into its most essential, wholesome, bite-sized chunks—that best serves a growing population of teaspoon-sized attention spans—I predict the feast of content you prepare for your audience will be far more appetizing.

The average consumer probably has more than one app for chat and messaging, uses a social media platform, relies on a daily calendar, and can’t live without receiving notifications.

The smartphone has evolved into a  tool used to perform all types of life-changing tasks.

The smartphone has also become a place to learn.

Life changing tasks

Like you, so many mentors and experts have tried standard online methods to forward their knowledge, but really how many of your followers have completed a course or succeeded in reaching their goal?

How can you make sure that your clients reach their goals?

The benefits of mLearning are endless, however, the methods and technology are only perfect for the new learner if the content is engaging, relevant and can be consumed anywhere anytime.

We did the research.

The majority of the experts we spoke to repeatedly told us that the platforms and programs out there are suffering both on the admin side and the user side. The major complaints are:

  • Poor user experience
  • Poor administrative interface
  • Poor reporting
  • Lack of engagement methods
  • Lack of integrations
  • Lack of mobile capabilities ‒ No App
  • No brand and web presence

With the market overflowing with new opportunities, how do you create an online program that will stand out?

How are you going to let the people who are looking for you and your knowledge find you?
