Mobile Learning: The Current Landscape in the Department of Defense (DoD), Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Co-Laboratories, 10 August 2011 Version 1.0

  • “The Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative recognizes the ubiquity of mobile devices and believes continued research regarding their use is warranted. However, ADL recognizes that the selection of mobile technology should be driven by the learning requirements and not the other way around. ADL defines mobile learning as the use of handheld computing devices to provide access to learning content and information resources. Mobile devices enable access to support and training materials at the moment of need. Driven by improved software, improved hardware, and evolving habits of mobile device users, the opportunities have increased even more significantly in the past few years. While mobile learning is not always appropriate as a training solution, it is now being considered as a part of the total learning and training support infrastructure. Earlier this year, ADL conducted a survey to investigate mobile device proliferation and usage by a wide range of DoD stakeholders.”
