‘The easy portability of mobile phones is the game-changer in learning.’
Some people find it surprising when asked if the app or the website is easily accessible through the phone. They think that the person doesn’t own a laptop or a computer. But that’s not the case.
Today’s era has come so forward in the field of technology that a small device that we hold on our hand is capable of doing tasks like any modern-day computer. The next point is since mobile is a handheld device it is easily accessible whereas the computers take some time even to start.
It is estimated that eLearning takes 40% to 75% less time than classroom training for a particular course. A research recently conducted at the University of KwaZulu-Natal revealed that 92% of students say that it is easier due to Mobile Learning Support in the LMS to improve their access to information. ‘You can access it anywhere, you just need a computer, internet access – no software is required,’ said Ms. Fiona Walters, a Senior Technician at the University of KwaZulu-Natal.
