As part of our State of Learning and Development 2017 report with InSync Training, we wanted to find out what learning trends are already being used and who is deploying them.

Mobile learning is one of the hottest topics, and demand for it only increases as we become a more mobile-oriented society. Yet only 16% of the overall L&D population currently uses mobile learning. So who has already implemented it?

Industries Using Mobile Learning

Corporate training services companies are the most likely to use mobile learning. This makes sense as their business model revolves around staying up-to-date and fulfilling client demand for new technology.

Other honorable mentions go to Wholesale Trade, Manufacturing, and Business Consulting firms.

Company Sizes Using Mobile Learning

The highest percentage of companies already using mobile learning were ones with more than 1000 employees. Considering these organizations rely on a more geographically dispersed workforce, it makes sense that they would invest in the technology to provide on-the-go training on mobile devices.

Companies with 101-500 employees are also more likely to currently use mobile learning.

Training Department Sizes Using Mobile Learning

Surprisingly, smaller training teams are more likely to use mobile learning than larger teams. Training departments 50 or fewer team members account for 84% of the departments currently using mobile learning.

Remote Learners Using Mobile

Mobile learning is most likely to be used when the learner population is 25% of the overall audience. Surprisingly, only a quarter of trainers responsible for 100% remote learners reported that they use mobile learning.
