The Emergence of Mlearning
The influx of personal mobile gadgets like smartphones, iPads, and tablets, as well as the emergence of compatible operating systems such as Android, iOS, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, Firefox OS, etc has influenced the e-Learning field considerably. As a result, Mlearning has become a reality in our time. Of late, ‘desktops’ are mainly meant for ‘in-office’ purposes. Moreover, such small gadgets are easy to carry and will also facilitate easy web surfing while on the go. The majority of the present-day population prefers the handiness and compactness of cell phones and tablets over the immobility of desktops. Besides, the major search engine ‘Google’ has already announced their preference for mobile-friendly websites. This move is exactly in line with the prevailing penchant of the modern internet users. If instructional designers neglect these practically observable facts and create e-Learning courses that are functional only on desktops, for sure, the created courses will fail to attract the attention of customers.
