Making learning more integrated means breaking out of the classroom—ensuring people can learn with smartphones, tablets, and laptops. 24/7 availability of information is crucial for empowering and motivating users as to when, where and how they consume learning.

Think about the digital trends that characterize our social and shopping habits. Learners aren’t any different. They want exactly the same things: instant access, decent bandwidth, and to move from impulse to fulfillment in minutes. Shorter content in under a second, easily consumable and always within their reach. Now that's a challenge. Or is it?
