Mobile eLearning seems nearly limitless!  It can happen anywhere at anytime. But is “what’s happening” truly engaging and memorable? It will be if you remember these tips!


We don’t want to bully the Next button. It did nothing wrong. We’re the ones who have caused its overuse. We just want to use the Next button to the
best of its abilities. We want to find out where it can truly provide a benefit to our users. And we also want to explore other approaches to eLearning that can lead to positive educational experiences.

In this short eBook, we will look at what defines eLearning and the Next button, and we will establish better approaches to learning and training for your
audience—approaches that educate through interactions, exploration, challenges, situations, simulations, reflections, preparations, and, ultimately, experiences.
