We recently teamed up with Fosway to present an insightful webinar on mobile learning, how organizations are pursuing mobile strategies, and why this type of content distribution has finally taken off in organizations across all industries.

As always, the webinar concluded with a Q&A session. Fosway founder David Wilson tackled the questions, and we have his answers for you right here. Take a look, and if you haven’t already, check out the webinar recording.

How is cost efficiency measured in reality in terms of mobile investment?

Learning Management Systems create poor user experience

According to a study conducted by the Brandon Hall Group, 50.6% of organizations say poor user experience is a significant barrier to satisfaction with learning technology. It’s important for a company to have an easy-to-use, modern-looking system.

Employees today are both oversaturated with information and short on time. They need to be able to quickly access the right learning tools and information.

According to learning analyst, Talented Learning, it is easier for LMS users to tolerate weaker user experience when training is mandatory, such as regulatory compliance training, but when the LMS is used for extended enterprise, such as dealership network training, the users must be persuaded to complete training regularly. In this case the user experience is key.
