In the upsurge of mobile learning
, various forms of platform have emerged such as Apps, MOOC, H5 and other tools, including employee autonomy, experiential and interactive learning, enhancing self-study ability and so on. Enterprises should introduce mobile learning technologies and platforms according to their own needs to give full play to the maximum value of enterprise training.
At present, there are three most popular forms of mobile learning: WeChat APP, and WeChat +APP. Each of them has advantages and disadvantages and now let’s compare the three forms:
(1)WeChat interface is gradually opening up, and more and more functions are being developed, applied and improved day by day.
(2)More and more companies are willing to use WeChat subscription for mobile learning because of its low cost and natural marketing entrance.
(1)Easy to jump to other websites and poor consistency leads to poor user experience.
(2)WeChat, which belongs to light learning, has obvious advantages and disadvantages. It can spread easily without considering users' mobile phone system and its cost is low. But opening a mobile learning course
requires the mobile phone to be online, so it restricts the mobile learning of the WeChat platform to some extent. Furthermore, the interface provided by WeChat is limited, as a result, learning records can not be fully traced, and personalized needs are also difficult to achieve.
(1)App is independent of mobile phone, free from the constraints of third-party software, and has good expansibility.
(2)Support off-line learning.
(1)The development cost is relatively higher and the time spent is also longer. It also may face the risk of students' 3-minute passion so that mobile learning is difficult to be effective and efficient.
(2)The higher cost of attracting users and the risk of APP becoming homogeneous are facing the brutal competition of living space compression.
One obvious advantages of H5 are good compatibility. The mobile learning content developed with H5 technology is suitable for each platform, and it can also modify and debug the relevant content on the web page at any time. Considering the cost of the company, the cost of H5 development and maintenance is lower and the time spent is shorter.
The disadvantage of H5 is that the speed of the software is easily affected by the network, and the hardware support of the camera, gyroscope and other hardware is poor. The application performance of the software is poor, and it is not suitable for the complex logic. Some students are more concerned about whether they can learn off-line, but H5 depends on the network and consumes user traffic without WiFi, and users may lose interest in this form of mobile learning in the near future.
The above three mobile learning forms play different roles and value in different needs and different scenarios. Enterprises should fully consider the form of training needs and choose the most suitable form so as to maximize the training effect of enterprises.
