2020 Trends in Mobile Learning

Mobile Learning is a Digital Learning solution focused on a single device. Some years ago, the mobile was exclusively reserved for basic actions such as making calls and sending text messages.

It was in 2007 that the changeover happened. Due to Apple’s launch of its first iPhone, the mobile usage changed once and forever. The mobile revolution had happened.

Knowing that the average French spends about 2 hours a day on the phone and that 16-30 year olds spend the equivalent of one day a week on their smartphones, we can say that this device is very popular! Therefore, nowadays training anywhere and anytime has become possible. It could be a meal break, free time at home or a Sunday morning in bed. The training has become a “takeaway”.

Here are the 2020 trends for Mobile Learning:

Virtual reality

This technology allows to immerse ourselves in a completely real world using a helmet affixed at the level of vision. It highlights our senses, like sight and hearing for an almost total immersion. The individual is immersed in an artificial environment that allows simple interactions. Being in a “bubble” allows learners to free themselves from the constraints of a “group” training.

Increasingly, this solution is linked with Mobile Learning to deliver a new way of learning. It gives companies a more innovative dimension to their training. With only a helmet and a smartphone it is possible to access the training of your choice. A mobile will allow the learner to navigate this virtual environment.
There are other tools in the family of virtual reality: augmented reality, in 2D or 3D interface. This allows you to add animations, sounds, objects, texts or other assets to your Mobile Learning module.

For example, of there is a problem on an industrial machine, you don’t need to move, you can find the fault from your augmented reality helmet. Everyday life is much simplified.

Phygital Learning

The recipe for Phygital Learning is to be able to mix face-to-face and e-Learning training, based exclusively on Mobile Learning for the “remote” part.

This method allows you to access the learning content outside of predefined lesson hours. This operating mode promotes interactivity, which makes the learner more involved and motivated in his training.

The main advantage of this learning is that it allows everyone to adapt their training as they see fit.
The methods of use are diverse and varied, they can be in the form of extension of the course, of evaluation of the concepts seen in face-to-face, but also and especially a personalized accompaniment to reinforce the anchoring memory. We know, thanks to the Ebbinghaus curve that after 1 month of training, 70% to 80% of the content is forgotten if we do not take booster shots.

The challenge here is to offer sustainable and accessible training through a smartphone.

Peer Learning

Interaction between learners is the key of this learning method. Collaborative work makes it possible to share knowledge and know-how while being accompanied by digital tools.

There is no need to spend a fortune on equipment for this method, when you know that almost all of us have a smartphone, or even several.

The principle of Peer Learning is to be able to interact with people who probably never had the opportunity to do so before. Each learner is no longer passive, each adds his stone to the edifice. A simple question is asked at the start of the training and the content will be written through the comments that each participant can provide.
By raising the curiosity of the learners and their involvement, the motivation will come of itself.

All this takes place via their mobile.
