Eton Institute's Mobile learning offers spontaneous and connected learning 24/7
Eton Institute promotes cultural knowledge and awareness through its Mobile Learning programs, returning students full circle to spontaneous, connected learning.
Although difficult to believe, the first successful foray of man in space in 1961 pre-dates the arrival of the Internet, the personal computer and smartphones. There is no more significant example of learning being underpinned by the human drive for mobility and the refusal to accept boundaries.
In a report from elearningindustry.com, it is estimated that $35.6 billion was spent on self-paced learning across the globe in 2011 and is expected to reach $56.2 billion in 2015. According to The Research Institute of America, e-learning has the power to increase information retention rates by up to 60%. This implies that mobile learning is proven to be cost efficient and effective in acquiring knowledge throughout the learning process.
Eton Institute, a leading international language and professional development training provider, promotes energized and personalized learning with its Mobile Learning options and connected, smart classrooms. From the expertise of internationally qualified instructors in virtual courses and webinars, to apps, downloads, games, online information, alerts, searches, and social media connections, Eton Institute's Mobile Learning is designed to allow people to learn as they have always done: on the move.
"Learning has been mobile as long as we have, from the days of travelling on foot to space travel. Our brain is a portable computer that we carry around with us wherever we go, and we were networking and social learning long before Social Media came along.
Fundamentally, learning happens naturally outside the classroom as part of our everyday lives, habits and experiences, as well as in the classroom. 80% of our lives are spent outside of formal classroom learning environments," commented Sue Brett, Vice President Marketing and Business Development at Eton Institute. "Devices have finally caught up with humans and our Mobile Learning reflects exactly that; it is personal, spontaneous and connected," she added.
With engaging and interactive sessions, Eton Institute's Mobile Learning programs include online self-study courses, virtual classroom courses, apps and webinars for languages, professional development, computer skills and teacher training. Students in the classroom can also connect to the latest, international learning resources via the use of smart boards and webinar platforms.
