Element K Simplifies Corporate m-Learning Programs with Convenient Mobile Learning Enablement Services

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 12, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Element K, an industry leader providing innovative, multi-modal learning solutions to clients worldwide, is making it easy for organizations to deliver learning via mobile devices with their Mobile Learning Enablement Services. Smartphone users can now gain access to formal learning content, reference or performance support tools, and informal learning resources -- anytime, anywhere, via the most popular mobile technologies.

Element K's Mobile Learning Enablement Service provides customers with end-to-end management of their mobile learning (m-Learning) initiatives. The service is designed to remove the administrative burden from clients, eliminating the hurdles and headaches common to m-Learning. The Mobile Learning Enablement Service can scale to accommodate tens of thousands of users, and provides 100% outsourced program administration from tactical rollout of app-based training, to ongoing learning asset tracking and management.

Leveraging Element K's award-winning approach to learning design, mobile training modules are divided into short, easy-to-digest segments that can include a variety of SCORM and AICC-conformant content. In addition, the Mobile Learning Enablement Service is platform independent, so organizations can deploy both proprietary content and Element K Business Professional videos and audio files -- regardless of their current infrastructure. The Element K Mobile Learning app is supported on a variety of smartphones, including BlackBerry, iPhone, Windows Mobile, and Android-based devices, as well as the iPod Touch and iPad.

"Given the proliferation of smartphones in business today, the potential for organizations to integrate mobile devices into their learning strategy is huge.
