This is one of the reasons that mobility is becoming such a hype in eLearning industry.
Mobility and language learning:
All known online language learning portals have launched their mobile apps to make the process faster and more user-friendly. A research conducted by an independent US journal suggests that more than 75% Americans prefer to learn while performing other everyday activities i.e. exercising, traveling, waiting in line, in the bathroom etc. This provides a great opportunity to the language teaching organizations to approach their target audience the way they want. A mobile application facilitates everyone willing to learn a new language while continuing with their daily routine.
The adult learners’ behavior suggest that they are more likely to enroll in a program or course if it does not meddle with their existing routine. This is indeed a lucrative opportunity for the language teachers and organizations to invest in.
