Boost Employee Productivity: 4 Tips for Mobile Training

4 Tips To Boost Employee Productive Through Mobile Training

Use these 4 tips to boost employee productivity through mobile training:

  1. Provide performance support.
    Take advantage of m-Learning, and provide employees with tools that make it easier for them to do their jobs, such as performance support on smartphones and tablets. While training is supplied before the work starts, performance support is available as employees actually do their jobs. If an employee runs into a problem or question, he can just reach into his pocket, pull out his phone and look up the answer. This is extremely efficient. How’s that for a productivity boost?

  2. Consider adopting a BYOD strategy.
    Bring You Own Device is a strategy that’s growing in popularity. According to a recent survey by Deloitte and ITWeb, 94.5% of respondents said they can use their mobile devices to access company email information. Only 56.88% can access documents—that’s why you need to choose a secure mobile app to deliver your training. BYOD is an effective strategy to boost productivity because people like to use their own devices; you just need to keep it secure.

  3. Make sure they can access training offline too.
    One of the best uses of m-Learning is for performance support. However, your mobile content needs to be available offline in addition to online. For example, imagine you’re on a field service call in a remote area and you want to reference a document on how to fix a customer’s problem, but you don’t have reception. That’s why offline training is so important! Not all mobile platforms allow offline access, so choose one that does, like the new CourseMill® Mobile.
  4. User test before delivering m-Learning.
    Mobile learning only boosts productivity if it actually works when your employees go to use it on their smartphones. Since smartphones and tablets vary in size, always user test on multiple devices before you deliver the finished m-Learning content. Here’s a blog with tips on designing good mobile content: Alert!

  5. Find the right LMS to manage your program.
    A powerful learning management system will make your entire m-Learning program run smoothly—from delivery to tracking to reporting. That way, you can see how your users have been doing with their on-the-go learning. See how new CourseMill® LMS V7 can help you effectively manage your m-Learning; email to chat with an expert.
