Best Practices: Authoring Courses For Mobile Delivery

Mobile learning platforms are rapidly becoming the new standard for e-learning.

Mobile training is rapidly becoming the new standard in all continuing education realms. Mobile-based continuing medical education allows learners to build their skills and knowledge at any time, from any location. The improved accessibility offered by mobile training further ensures prompt delivery of valuable information.

In order to create effective mobile-friendly CE learning systems, you must develop a strategy to implement the features most critical to mobile learning. As you expand your e-learning offerings, you’ll discover there are practices that best facilitate content creation, delivery, and tracking from mobile devices.

Best Practices To Support Mobile-Friendly CE Learning Systems

When developing your learning system for continuing education, you may find it helpful to:

  1. Determine how content will be distributed. When developing CME software, it’s essential to decide which mobile platforms will deliver and track your content. In order to deliver interactive courses to as many learners as possible. Here’s our advice: Find a software solution that’s compatible with Articulate Storyline. This will enable your course to play on any mobile device. Articulate Storyline creates e-learning content through product demonstrations, software simulations, soft skills, compliance training, and quizzes. Storyline not only responds to different device needs, but it also offers touchscreen gesture support and optimizes playback according to each individual device.
  2. Design mobile-friendly content. Mobile-friendly e-learning content must be created with on-the-go learners in mind. Mobile training applications are best served by short or segmented courses that can be completed within a condensed timeframe. Additionally, it can be helpful to create online courses that accept speaking rather than typing and fit to the screen size of any given device.
  3. Ensure standardization. Software interoperability is more attainable if your continuing education learning system follows e-learning standards. For instance, SCORM-compliant LMS acts as an interface between course content and software, ensuring that the platform offers reliable online learning across mobile devices.
  4. Implement tracking capabilities. With the right features in place, mobile-based CE learning systems can be effective at tracking learner participation. By finding a software provider that supports Tin Can API, you can measure completion, duration, and pass/fail status while also reporting on multiple scores and learning via mobile apps.
