Knowledge sharing and collaboration make mobile learning perfect for workplace training

By March 7, 2012 One Comment

Changing attitudes and habits regarding technology make it more important than ever for employers to train and deploy their workforces with mobile devices. According to Techworld, a new study by Bomgar and GigaOM. Pro found the most important attributes for the so-called Millennial generation (born between roughly 1980 and 1990) are sharing and collaboration.

This is unsurprising, given that the age group has embraced social media and the internet. Companies can come up with ways to adequately prepare such employees for work with this in mind. One way to accomplish this is by using mobile app development and other kinds of instructional software that can be used on tablets, smart phones and similar portable technology.

While the traditional classroom model is still useful for some portions of workplace instruction, mobile development training accounts for realities that old-fashioned types of lessons do not. For instance, the idea behind standardized tests and private work is to prevent cheating. However, the prevalence of mobile technology and the need to emphasize the collaboration Millennials are accustomed to means these concerns are less important. Instead, the final product that's been reached by using mobile technology and shared efforts should be considered the key to a successful training regimen.
