Good Practice’s Learning Trends Live survey, conducted at today’s Learning Technologies exhibition at Olympia 2, has revealed that the introduction of mobile devices like smartphones and tablets has made L&D course design and delivery much more of a challenge.

Almost 75% of respondents confirmed that these multiple devices had made their jobs at least slightly more difficult, and 12.9% stated that it had made their course creation ‘much more complex’.

The stats

When asked “Today’s learning needs to be available on desktop, iPad, tablet and smart-phone. How much more complex does this make course design and delivery for you?” participants answered:

Much more complex – 12.9%
Moderately more complex – 32.26%
Slightly more complex – 29.03%
No more complex – 16.13%
We don’t deliver learning through all of these platforms – 9.68%

Our previous survey question revealed that 65% of attendees are unlikely to pilot a mobile learning scheme over the next 6 months – and it’s possible that these perceived complexities could be the cause!
