What is useful for Decision Makers?

We need to understand their needs

Page 7: Mobile Learning for decision makers

Needs of Decision Makers?

- Time is the most valuable resource

Page 8: Mobile Learning for decision makers

Needs of Decision Makers?

- Decisions require conceptual knowledge

Page 9: Mobile Learning for decision makers

Needs of Decision Makers?

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

Mobile Learning – the ideal format for Decision Makers?

Page 11: Mobile Learning for decision makers

- Time is the most valuable resource

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

Page 12: Mobile Learning for decision makers

- Decisions require conceptual knowledge

The short learning sequences support rather conceptual than procedural knowledge

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

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

But: What is Mobile Learning?Let’s try a definition…

Page 15: Mobile Learning for decision makers

What is Mobile Learning?

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

Page 16: Mobile Learning for decision makers

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.

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.

Browser-based or Apps?

Mobile browser-based content or Apps?

That is a difficult question.

What do you think?

Page 27: Mobile Learning for decision makers

Browser-based or Apps?

Which phones are used by the target group?

Device Fragmentation?

Page 28: Mobile Learning for decision makers

Browser-based or Apps?

Offline use required?

Page 29: Mobile Learning for decision makers

Browser-based or Apps?

Need for complex media?

Page 30: Mobile Learning for decision makers

Decision for WBI

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

media formats

Case Study: blended mobile Learning

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

Case Study: blended mobile Learning

Blended Learning

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

Page 33: Mobile Learning for decision makers

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.
