    WBI asked common sense to conceptualize and pilot mobile Learning for Decision Makers

    What makes Decision Makers learn?

  • www.common-sense.at

    Any successful Learning approach must be useful for the target group.

    What is useful for Decision Makers?

    What is useful for Decision Makers?

    We need to understand their needs

  • www.common-sense.at

    Needs of Decision Makers?

    - Time is the most valuable resource

  • www.common-sense.at

    Needs of Decision Makers?

    - Decisions require conceptual knowledge

  • www.common-sense.at

    Needs of Decision Makers?

    - Many decision makers do not want to be associated with formal learning

  • www.common-sense.at

    Mobile Learning the ideal format for Decision Makers?

  • www.common-sense.at

    - Time is the most valuable resource

    Mobile Learning formats are ideally microlearning approaches with short learning time (5 to 10 minutes)

  • www.common-sense.at

    - Decisions require conceptual knowledge

    The short learning sequences support rather conceptual than procedural knowledge

  • www.common-sense.at

    - Many Decision makers do not want to be associated with formal learning

    Mobile Learning can be done anytime and everywhere beyond formal training approaches

  • www.common-sense.at

    But: What is Mobile Learning?Lets try a definition

  • www.common-sense.at

    What is Mobile Learning?

    Mobile Learning represents an opportunity to learn everywhere and anytime by using mobile communication devices.

  • www.common-sense.at

    What is Mobile Learning?

    Learners can be reached, regardless of external circumstances. Thus, any environment, in any situation, at any time of day can become a learning environment.

    Devices and Technology

    Mobile devices usually are small and portable and therefore enhance flexibility and mobility of their users.

    Devices and Technology

    But of course there are also some technological challenges which restrict the different formats of Mobile Learning or even exclude user groups.

  • www.common-sense.at

    Device ClassesLets make a list of devices that can be used for

    mobile Learning

    Mobile InternetThe two most popular formats in this field are

    Apps (mobile applications running on the different mobile operating platforms) and browser based content.

  • www.common-sense.at

    Browser-based or Apps?

    Mobile browser-based content or Apps?

    That is a difficult question.

    What do you think?

  • www.common-sense.at

    Browser-based or Apps?

    Which phones are used by the target group?

    Device Fragmentation?

  • www.common-sense.at

    Browser-based or Apps?

    Offline use required?

  • www.common-sense.at

    Browser-based or Apps?

    Need for complex media?

  • www.common-sense.at

    Decision for WBI

    Browser based solution:- High device fragmentation- Content deployable with accessible

    media formats

  • www.common-sense.at

    Case Study: blended mobile Learning

    At World Bank Institute, common sense integrated Mobile Executive Summaries into the moodle learning process.

  • www.common-sense.at

    Case Study: blended mobile Learning

    Blended Learning

    Now, MES modules, short, platform independent learning elements for decision makers, compliment the existing conventional modules.

  • www.common-sense.at

    Case Study: blended mobile Learning

    This way, decision makers can access abstracts and review key terms during the last moments before an important meeting.

    Case Study: blended mobile Learning

    This micro learning solution addresses a highly heterogeneous device landscape, utilizes moodle mobile and device-specific style sheets.
