Research and Markets: Mobile Learning: Delivering Learning in a Connected World

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wm684t/mobile_learning) has announced the addition of the "Mobile Learning: Delivering Learning in a Connected World" report to their offering.

Mobile Learning: Delivering Learning in a Connected World looks at the current landscape of mobile learning in a world in which the ubiquity of mobile devices seems to have created a perfect environment for delivering learning solutions to our workforce, where or when they need it.

Advancements in technology have exponentially changed not only the ways in which we experience the world, but also completely revolutionized - in a relatively short span of time - how we work and learn. Just in the past few years, the expectation of connectivity has become ubiquitous in nearly every aspect of our daily lives. The number of mobile devices accessing the web is evidence that the late Steve Jobs's prediction of a post- PC era, in which the world would move well beyond the constraints of desktop computing, is a reality. And if it seems as if everyone has a mobile device in their hands, it's not too far from the truth. At the end of 2011, there were 6 billion mobile subscriptions worldwide (ITU, 2011). This is equivalent to 87 percent of the world's population and represents a huge increase from the 5.4 billion mobile subscriptions in 2010 and 4.7 billion in 2009.

In 2011, 1.5 billion handsets were sold, up 11.1 percent compared with 2010 (IDC, 2012). And next-generation global wireless broadband communications (IMTAdvanced) will up the ante even further, with experts predicting that the developing technology will far surpass the capability of today's smartphones, making them seem as antiquated as old rotary dial phones. The technology is expected to provide speed up to 100 times faster than that of current smartphones, which means nearly instant delivery of streaming video and data transfers, for example (ITU, 2012).

Considering that corporations are continually striving to do more with less, including providing development opportunities for their employees while meeting business objectives, the role of technology is a key factor. Clearly, mobile learning bridges these objectives by providing additional means of learning possibilities that continue to evolve.

Mobile Learning: Delivering Content in a Connected World, (hereafter, the Study) looks at the current landscape of mobile learning in a world in which the ubiquity of mobile devices seems to have created a perfect environment for delivering learning solutions to our workforce, where or when they need it.
