5 Ways that Mobile Learning Boosts Employee Training
The corporate world has changed by leaps and bounds in the last decade. We live in a digital age where pretty much everything in our daily lives happens on a mobile device like a tablet or a smartphone. How we communicate, operate, conduct business, and even learn is dictated by our use of technology. This is why most organizations from different industries in India and all over the world have adopted mobile learning to boost employee training and productivity.
Mobile learning has become popular since it’s cost-effective and less time-consuming. Thanks to mobile learning, organizations don’t need to hold on-site training sessions. There’s no need to hire a trainer, lease out a meeting room, print out a large amount of training material, etc. What once required a lot of effort is now a simple act and is, therefore, easier to handle. Let’s find out what exactly makes mobile learning so appealing as a conduit for employee training.
How does mobile learning improve employee training?
At HandyTrain, an organization that is well-known for having its own mobile learning app, we’ve observed the following ways that mobile learning boosts employee training:
1. Instant access to information
Employee training becomes easy with mobile learning since you have immediate access to training information. All that you need to do is ensure that your employees have a User Id, either their mobile number or official email address, to login into the mobile learning app. Once this is done, they have clear access to the resources and templates available on the app.
2. Employees gain confidence
Mobile learning is designed to help employees learn on their own, at a time that is convenient for them. In doing so, they also get the opportunity to look at scenarios laid out for them, as part of their employee training, and come up with solutions to problems directly. Learning like this also allows them to identify what kind of training information they would like to see going forward. When they have this kind of leeway, their confidence levels increase and help them to be more enthusiastic and productive.
3. Information is concise and easy to understand
The whole point of adopting mobile learning for employee training is simple. You want to avoid overwhelming them with tons of information. Therefore, the smartest and most effective way to train employees is to make the training content bite-sized. Use the different templates in HandyTrain to create training content easily. Employees will find it easier to understand and retain information if it is in a picture or video format.
4. Staying up-to-date on the latest news in your field becomes easier
The corporate world doesn’t stop for anyone. Remember that all information is key, whether new gadgets are developed or new business strategies are created. Mobile learning allows you to give this information to your employees if they need it. You can even select the employees that actually need to know the information and only give them access to the training program. It’s actually easy to do on the HandyTrain mobile learning app.
5. You can create assessments to track performance
One of the most important parts of mobile learning for employees is actually being able to check how much they have learned and retained. It’s not easy to assess employee performance on paper since it’s time-consuming and involves a lot of paperwork. Add to that, if done in a classroom setting, not everyone is willing to participate in group assessments. Giving employees a chance to self-assess, at their own pace will yield better and more accurate results. HandyTrain allows you to set assessments with settings as per your preference and requirements. You can assign the program and related assessment to select or all employees. In addition, there are reports available for regular download to check the training status as well as the performance of each employee.
