How Mobile Learning Enhances Training

Mobile Learning

Mobile learning is quickly starting to take a robust form in South Africa. From schools, to corporates, everyone is attempting to integrate mobile technology into their training and learning interventions. At SAIL, we are aware that mobile learning has grown from a ‘good to have’ element to a ‘must-have’ content delivery method. Here are a few reasons why you should consider and incorporate mobile learning into your training programmes.

Bring Your Own Device

BYOD is a constantly growing concept at educational institutions and numerous organisations. BYOD, short for Bring Your Own Device, delivers mobile learning on the device of the choice of the learners. No matter where you are or who you are, research suggests that you may learn better on your own device than on a device provided to you by your organisation.

Formal and Informal Learning

Formal or customised learning paths are a necessity when delivering training through eLearning and today, eLearning is vastly supported by micro-learning nuggets that are delivered on smartphones and tablets. Mobile devices have become the ideal instruments to deliver formal and informal training any sector, and at any given point in time.

Responsive Design

Today, authoring tools are advanced and allow training specialist and instructional designers to build SCORM content easily. Authoring tools such as Articulate Storyline 3, have responsive design built-in, which means that one programme can fit all screens and devices. At SAIL, we use tools and software Articulate Storyline 3 and Adobe Captivate to design interactive programmes at are responsive on any device, including smartphones and tablets.


Mobile devices are ideal to implement gamification techniques in training. Gamification not only allows you to see how you are performing, but also allows you to win rewards, compete with peers and providing wholistic feedback about the programme.
