Certpoint Systems White Paper on Mobile Learning
Certpoint Systems, a leading international provider of integrated enterprise learning solutions, today announced the publication of its new white paper on mobile learning (m-learning). Driven by the availability of smart phones such as the iPhone, m-learning is becoming increasingly important with organizations needing to train distributed workforces. The white paper outlines how to make mobile learning a success at individual and organization level.
Mobile learning technology can empower anyone, anywhere, to access knowledge when they need it, in the palm of their hand. Exploring the technologies behind mobile learning, the white paper examines why mobile learning has now reached a tipping point in adoption, driven by the increasing functionality of smart devices and the growing sophistication of users. The power of m-learning, according to the paper, is that as well as formal learning it supports informal learning, for example, through social networking.

Mobile learning is far more than just another delivery mechanism for e-learning courses, points out CERTPOINT Systems CEO Ara Ohanian. "Mobile learning technology can empower anyone, anywhere, to access knowledge when they need it, in the palm of their hand."
