    Although the book is from 2012 it still provides ideas how to roll out a mobile learning project properly. But I doubt that ASTD forecasts back then are accurate

    The tablet is barely 3 yrs old,but in that short time it has proven to be a formidable learning tool. Our learning practically run on apps. So should our learning. And get abstract is the industry leader for books.

    Scope seems a little narrow with just mobile. It may have addressed walled vs. open field approaches, or the coming massively open courseware, but the abstract did not show that. I would also hope that tagging and communities is stressed over elaborate content taxonomies. Oh, and keep it granular for whatever module you create!

    Another great book summarized by getAbstract. This summary even reinforces the need for getAbstract too. “People learn better for longer when the learning instances are smaller and spread out.”
