By Mike Brock In our featured project, we take a look at how Audi of America is starting to use mLearning in the classroom to not only replace but enhance its more traditional paper-based/PowerPoint instructor-led courses. The iPads used by the technicians at the Audi Learning Centers are part of an evolving mobile learning environment and not just an iPad-only solution. The Audi Self-Study Programs (SSP) app, also mentioned in the featured project, is available as both an iOS and Android app for tablets. As more courses are developed and taught in a mobile environment and other mobile learning strategies are deployed, significant cost savings will be realized. In addition, the amount of time instructors take to prep for individual courses will decrease and the number of training days dealership technicians spend away from their dealerships will decline. Videos provide a great instructional medium for many types of mLearning projects, as well as new product and technology launches with the added benefit of being easily uploaded to branded YouTube channels. Instructional videos are great across multiple devices, especially smartphones. More than 85 percent of users watch videos on a smartphone compared with a tablet. (Source: Flurry Analytics, Apr 2013)

I've broken down three aspects of design production that you may wish to consider.
