Rise is one of the best online authoring tools to create responsive eLearning courses and provides flexibility to convert them into mobile learning apps as part of micro-learning strategy.
Why an App for eLearning?
Smartphones and their apps have become an integral part of our lives. In this smartphone era, mobile learning or mLearning is now a hot trend in the eLearning industry as it supports learning anywhere and anytime. Most of the organizations have already started implementing “Bring Your Own Device” or “BYOD” policy as part of corporate learning. A mobile learning app is designed especially for bite-sized learning / micro-learning; whenever a learner needs just-in-time information. These mobile learning apps enable learner to access the content without any internet connection.
Mobile Learning is the future of eLearning. So, it is the right time to convert your eLearning courses into mobile learning smartphone apps.
