Workers are a mobile bunch. They should have access to training and information “on the go” — whenever they want, wherever they are.

The trend towards a mobile workforce will only continue with the rapid increase in the use of mobile technology such as iPods, cellphones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), web pads and palmtop computers in the workplace and at home.

As a result, trainers must design and develop training materials for delivery on mobile technologies. The learning materials will need to be in small chunks, which allows for delivery on the small screens of mobile devices.
