New Delhi: While 80% of Indian employees feel that mobile learning is likely to increase their level of engagement with their corporate learning programmes, only 27% organizations in the country have adopted the mobile learning approach, revealed a new study by US-based learning and talent management firm SkillSoft Corp.

Mobile learning refers to the process of learning by using mobile through video tutorials and interactive online chat sessions.

The study is based on 545 responses from decision makers (individuals who manage a budget within an organization for human resources or learning & development) and learners (individuals who do not manage human resources or learning and development budgets and receive training in any form) across 16 countries in Asia Pacific, including 174 decision makers and learners from India.

“For many in India, mobile has become their platform of choice, where employees are empowered to access learning on demand,” said Aruna Telang, Manager, Consulting Services, Asia, Skillsoft. “Companies seeking to adapt to this new reality need to quickly evolve their learning strategies and better understand the needs of their workforce in order to ensure high learner engagement and the programme’s effectiveness.”
