mLearning more than mobile elearning?

Clark Quinn

Someone tweeted about their mobile learning credo, and mentioned the typical ‘mlearning is elearning, extended’ view. Which I rejected, as I believe mlearning is much more (and so should elearning be). That would take me back to mlearning being more than just mobile elearning, as Jason Haag has aptly separated. Sure, mobile elearning can be a subset of mlearning, but not the whole picture.

Levels of eLearning Quality

Clark Quinn

Of late, I’ve been both reviewing eLearning, and designing processes & templates. As I’ve said before , the nuances between well-designed and well produced eLearning are subtle, but important.

elearning versus mlearning

Clark Quinn

pointed to this post saying “mLearning is starting to diverge from eLearning not only in specific meaning, but in approach and design as well”, and I want to politely disagree. Depends, of course, on what you mean by elearning, to start with. The clear implication is that elearning is about courses on the desktop. Of course, I acknowledge that, to most, elearning is the simple case. Mayra Aixa Avilar (who I hope to meet someday, maybe at mLearnCon ?)pointed
