Social media and mobile technology, coupled with an increasing demand for performance-based learning are influencing learner behavior. As far as social networking and collaborative learning are concerned, the role of mobile devices as primary tools for active learning acquires special relevance. Thus, mobile learning in a social & collaborative environment is characterized by connected workers across the globe, besides the availability of social networking platforms, access to expertise, ability to access, create, and share content freely. Organizations are increasingly looking at mobile devices for their learning and development activities with Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) assuming an important role and emerging as a cost-effective solution. In addition, developing customized mobile apps that help access learning content while on-the-go, and contain collaborative elements has emerged as another crucial trend.

While we continue to leverage our strengths and differentiate ourselves on mobile first UI design, flexible frameworks (LEARNow and SOP Ecosystem), integrated apps, progressive enhancement and our ability to scale, we remain aware of the tremendous potential this space holds. Given the increasing computing power available on mobile devices and network speeds getting better each day it is natural to expect more augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR)experiences on mobile devices. With the wearables already here, newer technology advancements such as Apple’s iBeacon and Internet of Things (IoT) present interesting and enormous opportunity to build contextual mobile solutions.
