Free mobile learning guide from Ufi and Kineo

Ufi, the organisation behind learndirect, and e-learning company Kineo have published a free guide to mobile learning.

Called 'Mobile Learning Reviewed', the guides seeks to answer questions such as 'What is mobile learning?', 'Which devices can be used?' and 'Who's likely to use mobile learning?'.

Kirstie Donnelly, director of products and marketing at Ufi/learndirect, said: "Ufi/learndirect seeks to set new standards in the use of technology and learning to improve the experience for its customers. We're well aware that many of our learners use mobile devices every day, so it's imperative we explore the potential for delivering learning via these devices.

"I'm also personally very keen on reusability of digital assets in a range of learning context. Our recent collaboration with Kineo to develop mobile learning prototypes clearly shows the potential for m-learning to work for us, and to effectively re-purpose existing digital assets with value added through new materials. We're pleased to share our findings and insights with the broader learning and training community through this guide."

Stephen Walsh, Kineo partner, said: "We're delighted to continue our collaboration with Ufi/learndirect in this fourth in our series of guides on key issues in learning and technology. We're particularly interested in the intersection of rapid e-learning and mobile learning. Ufi challenged us to find rapid models that can be used to create effective and engaging mobile learning. We believe the results of this pilot, as documented in the guide, clearly demonstrate that rapid e-learning models fit perfectly in the m-learning space. They're yet another example of how rapid e-learning can help organisations deliver cost-effective learning solutions at speed."

'Mobile Learning Reviewed' and the prototype example can be accessed from the Publications section of Ufi's website.
