The Best Software for Online and Mobile Learning

The way we approach learning, and what we consider to be viable learning solutions, has undergone a seismic shift. If anything has brought this drastically to light recently, it’s the COVID-19 pandemic. But this is a change that’s been years in the making. Why? 

Technology has enabled companies to scale their learning and development programmes by digitising them. Digitisation of learning empowers businesses to reach their workforces anytime, anywhere, through online learning

Broadly speaking, an online learning platform is any in-house training tool that provides you with a system through which to deliver and manage learning to your workforce regardless of their physical location. 

The bottom line: it’s scalable and more cost effective than traditional methods.

Mobile learning

Mobile learning is a subcategory that falls under the umbrella of online learning. It takes the concept of anytime, anywhere one step further. It differs in that it is device oriented - it’s optimised to be accessed portably, via smartphones and tablets

Another distinguishing factor of mobile learning is the brevity of the content. The learning delivered is often microlearning. Microlearning is defined as bite-sized chunks of information, typically 3-5 minutes long, that complement the medium it's being accessed on (a smartphone), and caters to shortened attention spans.  

Which one is right for me?

There’s a wide array of Learning Management Systems, E-learning or Mobile Learning (“M-learning”) solutions out there. But which one’s right for you?

Before you settle on a software to run with, you need to establish your needs and expectations.

How large is your workforce? Are your employees remote, or office based? Do you have a designated L&D team, or are you a single operations manager responsible for a whole fleet? Are you looking for isolated, one-off learning events, or to provide a continuous learning journey? How easy do you need content creation to be? What type of learning are you looking to use your software to share - onboarding, health and safety, customer service, or something else entirely, like developing soft skills? 

It’s unlikely that one software will encompass absolutely everything on your checklist, but some may come pretty close, or offer other valuable features. Read on for a breakdown of features, customer support and ease of use for some of the big players in the market.
