The MacMillan m-learning courses, which can be used on Apple, Android and BlackBerry devices, cover subjects such as teamwork, time management, appraisals, managing change, coaching, interviewing and managing stress and assertiveness. The app created by Video Arts, provides a gateway to the courses available through Learn Zone, MacMillan’s virtual learning environment. Learn Zone contains education and support resources, advice and guidance, e-learning courses and professional development tools.

Lesley Maguire, Macmillan's Learning Technology Manager, said, “Smartphones and tablet computers are everywhere now and most people are comfortable in using them for a variety of applications.

“M-learning takes advantage of this technology and enables people to learn whenever and wherever they want. The mobile courses will benefit our staff and they'll add value to the quality of the service that our professionals provide to cancer sufferers.”

Designed specifically for mobile devices and for on-the-move learning, the courses can be used as standalone learning resources or to reinforce the messages from classroom training or e-learning.

The Move To m-Learning In The Healthcare Industry

This development signals to the fact that mHealth and m-learning is gaining momentum within the medical and healthcare industry. mHealth goes way beyond electronic health records and mobile diagnosis, it also facilitates greater communication and on-the-spot learning.

The medical industry, due to its very nature is innovative and thus ever changing, so it’s paramount that information and training is accessible instantly, remotely and at any time of day. MacMillan’s move to m-learning is just the very beginning.
