. However, older people are more willing to accept decent and serious content. More learning content that is full of masculine can be pushed to inspire the same feeling if the company is more common in males; for female trainees, more content of clothing, jewelry and so on can be pushed to mobilize their feelings with a more intimate interactive form.

For new employees, they are more willing to blend into the new team as soon as possible through mobile learning. But more business profiles and cultural content need to be pushed if they want to know about the company and be familiar with the position. The online interaction can also be richer and more high-frequency. If the mobile learning project is aim at the middle and senior managers of the enterprise, the pushed content should meet the requirements of others, and the time they may be available to study should be taken into consideration.
