Mobile App developer YUDU Media have released a white paper outlining technological trends in the training industry, as an overview of how this impacts strategic planning for HR and Training professionals. The paper deals with the economics of an industry which, for the past few years, has experienced double-digit growth year-on-year as companies race to fill skills shortages in new and cost-effective ways.
The main focus of the paper is on mobile devices, and how they are changing the sector. A great deal of attention has been paid to tablets in particular, and how some office environments have been reshaped through schemes like “Bring Your Own Device”. Comparatively little industry attention has been given previously to mobiletraining and how it can impact internal programs, despite mounting evidencethat it can stimulate e-learning progress amongst even older employees.
Another topic covered is the effect new software has on training. Increasingly sophisticated Learning Management Systems, as well as easily accessible Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have catalyzed a change in how training professionals and HR Directors develop strategies for talent management, skills development and on-boarding.
Richard Stephenson, CEO of YUDU comments: “Training Managers who are already working on their mobile strategies know that mobile delivery can really enhance their training courses. Our research proves that delivery of mobile training can benefit e-learning throughout an organization and the aim of this white paper is to support this some of the strategies being developed in this area.”
The paper also provides some ideas, based on YUDU’s experience in developing enterprise applications for blue-chip clients, as to how enterprising HR and Training professionals can leverage these devices to provide better returns.
