How Reach Makes It Easy to Convert Your eLearning Solution to a Mobile App
In previous blog posts, we’ve discussed why traditional eLearning platforms don’t always deliver the results businesses are looking for, as well as how a mobile app can improve educational outcomes.
So, to take these topics one step further, we thought we’d discuss how businesses can transform their traditional training programs into a mobile training app.
Often times, business owners assume that the process of converting an already existing training platform into a mobile app is extensive and costly— but that isn’t necessarily the case.
When approached strategically, converting an existing training curriculum into a mobile learning experience can actually be surprisingly painless.
And since the foundation of the Reach app is already developed, our clients don’t have to pay the entire cost for a custom app that most other developers charge for.
Instead, we allow our clients to customize a number of the features within the app, as well as the branding of the app, to make it look and function the way they’d like.
This approach significantly reduces the overall price of our mobile app projects, without compromising on personalization.
But most importantly, it makes it easy for our clients to transfer their content into our pre-made platform, making the conversion process seamless. Here are three ways Reach makes converting your eLearning solution to a mobile app easier:
1. CONDENSING YOUR CONTENT
When discussing how to create a training app with our clients, we always emphasize the importance of condensing content into bite-sized chunks. This is essential for mobile training solutions, since users do not want to have to scroll through long blocks of text.
With the Reach app, there are pre-designed content blocks where questions and other forms of content can be easily added.
And, of course, should your mobile app require more space for text and other content forms, we can easily add them in.
We are experts at reformatting content for mobile and will ensure your copy is optimized and digestible for your app users— an important step when making the leap to an app for training employees.
2. CHOOSING GAME COMPONENTS
As an established and experienced team of mobile app developers, we come prepared with a wide selection of gamification elements that can be easily added to your mobile training app.
Some of the gamification elements we use include:
Rewards and badges
Levels and learning goals
Personalized learning pathways
And since we’ve already used these gamification elements to produce results for other clients using the Reach platform, we can easily pull these same elements and place them into your mobile learning solution.
We can even recommend which gamification elements will work best for your unique educational goals, ensuring you receive the absolute best solution for your business.
3. ADDING EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING ELEMENTS
We’ve already shared this post that highlights the benefits of problem-based learning and team-based learning. So, for the purposes of this article, we’ll be focusing on the various methods we can incorporate experiential learning exercises into your mobile training app.
Some of the experiential learning elements we offer for our Reach app include:
Team-based training exercises
Game-based learning exercises
Repetitive tasks (Which increase retention)
The ability to offer these immersive exercises is an integral part of what makes mobile apps for corporate training so successful. Learning by doing has been proven to be the most effective training method, so it only makes sense that your mobile learning solution includes opportunities for your users to gain understanding this way.
