Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you might have heard by now that mobile learning is no longer the next big thing – it IS the big thing. In the past, smart phones and tablets were something only the “trend setters” had, but now that they are more affordable and accessible than ever (with Apple’s announcement of the iPhone 5 earlier this month, the iPhone 4S price has dropped to $99) it’s no wonder mLearning has taken off. Here is a quick breakdown of the mobile learning trends you need to be watching. All of these trends saw significant uptake in 2012… and look to continue.
1. mLearning in the classroom…and in the workplace.
2. Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
3. “Snack learning”
4. Tin Can API
5. Location-based integration and workplace training
6. Cloud computing
