10 Steps to Mobile Learning Adoption

Mobile learning, like any change initiative, involves different stakeholders playing a greater or lesser part. Whilst those who are responsible for the change (the Change Sponsor and Change Manager) should be well-acquainted with the entirity of this Mobile Learning infoKit, other stakeholders may need an overview of the process. As the Mimas snapshot demonstrates, working in partnership is critical.


The generic 10-step process outlined in the image above has been adapted from Gary Woodill’s very detailed mLearning Road Map and is a useful overview as to how to successfully implement a mobile learning initiative:


  1. Write mobile learning vision statement
  2. Gather stakeholder requirements
  3. Agree on scope
  4. Obtain senior manager buy-in
  5. Identify required content
  6. Decide in-house or external development
  7. Identify champions
  8. Create and test beta content
  9. Gain feedback and iterate offering
  10. Roll out to wider group


After the initial mobile learning roll-out, consider:


  • Constant updating of policies as challenges/opportunities arise
  • Changing course as the mobile landscape changes
  • Updating job roles and responsibilities as requirements and scope alter
  • Providing ongoing training for all stakeholders


Ensuring that a mobile learning initiative is successful involves being able to answer the following questions:


  • What is the learning problem you are trying to solve?
  • What technology will you require?
  • What skills will teachers/facilitators have to learn?
  • What would be the cost of implementation?
  • How can you facilitate acceptance?
  • How will you measure success?
