Gary Woodill, a mobile learning expert, presents a strong case explaining why organizations should embrace the new technology of mobile learning. His guide is filled with information, strategies, hard and soft resources, innovative ideas and case studies. It outlines a new learning landscape featuring participant freedom, virtual worlds, gaming, collective communication and self-generated curricula.
