Videos can increase readers' engagement and help them understand their lessons better. However, content creators should invest in high-quality recording materials and take time out to understand how to make engaging videos.
FREMONT, CA: With an increase in the use of mobile devices, mobile learning has seen explosive growth over the past few years. It has become an integral feature of Learning Management Systems (LMS) and eLearning platforms. Mobile-first learning seems to have more impact on learners than traditional classroom-based learning.
This article discusses some ideas to create and use mobile learning content for effective learning:
Organize the Content
Contents that can not be converted directly into one's mobile learning course can be repurposed to integrate with the mobile learning strategy seamlessly. Finding patterns and similarities in the existing content would help one segregate the content into categories. The next step is to continue this process until they can find the topics and lessons. Then they use bullet points and bright colors to make the lengthy text readable and attractive.
Keep it Short and Comprehensive
Reading long and elaborative texts can be tiresome and confusing. Readers prefer reading content that is easily digestible and not so time-consuming. Given today's fast-paced lifestyle, everyone wants to learn more within a minimum amount of time. Hence, keeping the mobile learning content short and crisp would encourage readers to complete the course.
Utilize Audio and Video
Learning through audio and video has become quite popular among readers. Some prefer watching videos on a particular topic rather than reading about it. Content creators can use free software, editing tools to create and edit audio or video content. Videos can increase readers' engagement and help them understand their lessons better. However, content creators should invest in high-quality recording materials and take time out to understand how to make engaging videos.
