  2. Splitting hairs possibly, but there is a limit to how much training can be done remotely. Learning, yes, but training is about new skills and behavioural changes which requires physical involvement. Individual elearning sessions do not compensate for the values inherent in group work and discussion. Blended learning – the design of training that optimises the use of elearning, face to face and on job coaching is preferable in some circumstances.

  3. Mobile learning is great for information gathering and theory building. It’s not great for behaviour development/change. Like riding a bike, you can read a book about it, but there is no substitution for getting on the thing and riding it.
