How mobile devices can transform your learning

Knowledge-building on the go and improved retention are a couple of the big benefits mobile devices can bring to your learning. In this blog, we’ll touch upon some of the sectors in which mobile learning is revolutionizing training, and highlight a few of the great advantages it gives you and your team.

Used wisely, mobile devices are a powerful tools, whether you want to improve collaboration in the creation of eLearning courses or give learners just-in-time compliance information on the other side of the world.

Multiple assignments and your LMS: many jobs, one login

In today’s fast-paced flexible environment employees may hold two or more distinct jobs within a single organization. It’s essential for these employees and their managers that their learning management system (LMS) can efficiently link these different assignments, as well as keep track of learning for compliance requirements.

Multiple assignment examples

Multiple assignments are found most commonly in organizations with multiple locations in close proximity, so they are typically more prevalent in densely populated countries. The industry verticals where multiple assignments are crucial include:

  • Healthcare – Nurses or doctors working in more than one hospital or healthcare practice. For example, Alex is a nurse and works in Hospital B on Monday and Tuesday. He logs into the LMS and completes his training. Then on Thursday and Friday he goes to Hospital M, so he chooses the other location in the LMS. The branding changes, the learning path changes and requirements change.
