Any organization that is considering the possibility of introducing mobile learning (mLearning) in its training programs would have to make choice between a home brewed and an outsourced solution. The decision however is not simple or straight forward, as a number of challenges need to be addressed. Those are:

Aided by powerful interactive possibilities, the entire course is kept on track by a Learning management System (LMS).

It would be obvious to any user of an iPad like device that an eLearning session on a tablet or a smart phone would be vastly different. A Mobile learning system is not an eLearning system slapped on a mobile device. It really happens to be in a different class altogether. Anyone who is thinking of creating or migrating to a mLearning system should recognize this crucial fact. This also means that the constraints and opportunities that are a part of the mobile ecosystem must be considered before attempting to design a new mLearning course. Let’s take a look at the common pitfalls or mistakes that can derail this process:
