The term M-Training, or mobile training, has different meanings for different communities. Although related to e-learning, Edtech and distance education, it is distinct in its focus on learning across contexts and learning with mobile devices. In short, it is any sort of learning that happens when the learner is not at a fixed, predetermined location, or learning that happens when the learner takes advantage of the learning opportunities offered by mobile technologies.
As a result of the E-business Mobile Training project trainers will receive a methodology and trainers' manual that will explain them, step by step, how to make use of mobile devices in their everyday work. During the seminars and pilot trainings trainers will have a chance to convince themselves of the attractiveness and the effectiveness of m-learning. The project will empower trainers with methods and tools, integrated in a system, that will design, develop and present learning resources for educational process. We believe that our actions will encourage trainers to use also other ICT more often.
We are going to run the project pilot trainings in the group of 48 employees in Poland and 20 in Bulgaria. Trainings will consists of two parts: Firstly, stationary trainings introducing the subject and providing trainees with theoretical knowledge, background and the most important issues on the subject; Secondly the mobile follow up training with the use of mPSS. Each mobile course will consist of several modules; each module will consist of a description of learning task, resources, instructions how to perform the task, task-specific training and expert piece of advice.
