The growing use of mobile devices is rapidly changing the way we carry out daily tasks.
At the end of 2011, there were 6 billion mobile phone subscriptions, which is equivalent to 87 % of the world population. Still more remarkable is the increasing growth in the use of smart phones! In 2011, 491 million were sold which is a 61% rise from the previous year. These numbers continue to grow and it’s predicted that 686 million smartphones will be sold in 2012. Tablets are hugely popular, too.
But how does this affect the learning industry? It means the ability to reach millions of people anywhere and at any time. Mobile delivery enables new possibilities in the way we test — and creating assessments, quizzes and surveys for mobile delivery is the key to reaching people on the go.
We will host a complimentary one-hour web seminar, ‘Creating Assessments for Mobile Delivery’ here in the UK on Wednesday 27th June 2012 at 11:00AM (GMT /London Time). Please join us to learn about this delivery option and to get a basic understanding of using Questionmark technologies for mobile assessments.
