Modernize Present Studying For Cellular Adoption

Modernize current learning for mobile adoption

Shopping, entertainment, communication, navigation, photography, banking, and learning are some of the things we use our smartphones for on a daily basis. Since modern people are already using their mobile phones to learn things, it is very easy to get modern employees to learn and develop skills and knowledge on their smartphones, a learning strategy known as mobile learning or mLearning.

mLearning has evolved from a cutting-edge L&D trend to a modern reality used by a number of business organizations around the world. However, there are organizations that still haven’t embraced mLearning because they don’t know how to properly implement it. mLearning is more than digital learning on the phone and also easier to implement than many believe. In this article, we will discuss how you can convert your current learning program into an mLearning program.

Video-based learning is best for modern mobile learners

Modern learners are used to watching videos on their smartphones. Videos are a popular content format these days as they offer both visual and acoustic engagement. Videos also pack a lot of content in short duration, which is important when dealing with modern learners as they have a short attention span and lack patience for anything longer than 5-7 minutes. Another reason video-based learning is a good idea for educating modern learners is because video, like no other content format, can demonstrate the application of a skill or the completion of a task. They can be viewed by learners while they are performing the task of applying the skill in real time, and they can also be paused and paused at will.

Videos also enable learning on the go and just-in-time, which is crucial for modern employees who work more in the field or outdoors than in desk jobs. All of the above reasons make video-based learning perfect for this modern generation of mobile learners, which is why companies looking to modernize their L&D program simply need to convert all of their current or existing learning content to video format. Now let’s go over how to do this step by step.

Creating mLearning videos from old content

  1. The first thing you should do is analyze all of your old content – which is likely to consist of e-learning courses, presentations, reviews, and the like – to see which of it can be turned into video. Most of this can be, so you have to be a little picky to see what is relevant to the modern age of learning.
  2. Now that you’ve analyzed your old content, it’s time to derive topics and concepts from this collection of old content. Curate and structure these topics in different folders so that they can be easily found later in inventory form when you start turning them into videos.
  3. A storyboard is an essential part of any type of learning module or course. Now that you’ve analyzed, curated, and structured your old content, you need to create a storyboard to determine and define what content will be placed where in your mLearning video along with a script and audio commentary. The storyboard also helps determine if there is any new content to be created.
  4. Once the storyboarding is complete, we move on to the actual production of mLearning videos. At this stage, you’ll use video editing tools to capture screens of old content to creatively connect them, add new content (if there is any), and add finishing touches to create a high quality mLearning video.
  5. Finally, publish this mLearning video on your LMS (Learning Management System), your learning website, your learning portal and / or your learning app. An app is recommended for mLearning as it gives learners the added flexibility of viewing the eLearning course offline from their mobile devices and sending learners notifications of new mLearning videos and modules, as well as reminders to complete their modules and videos.


Following the steps above will ensure that your learning program caters to modern mobile learners and increases the absorption, storage, and application of knowledge and skills.
