As part of our State of Learning and Development 2017 report with InSync Training, we learned mobile learning is being used as a learning tool across many different mediums.
As one of the hottest topics of 2017, and demand for mobile learning is increasing as we become a more mobile-oriented society. However, only 16% of the overall L&D population currently uses it. So who has already implemented this trend?
Industries Using Mobile
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.
Companies Using Mobile
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 it.
Training Departments Using Mobile
Surprisingly, smaller training teams are more likely to use mobile than larger teams. Training departments 50 or fewer team members account for 84% of the departments currently using it.
Training Population Using Mobile
Training departments with 1,000+ learners are far and away the most likely to employ mobile learning, accounting for 58% of usage. Yet only 8% of companies with 501-1000 annual learners are actually using this trend.
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 this trend.
