I sat through part of Woodill's webinar at the e-Learning Guild site in early June, 2011 but logged off after about 20 minutes because it was like listening to paint dry and I had better things to do with my lunch hour. Nonetheless, I decided to buy the book because I was intrigued.

I really tried to like this book. I sat down and read it with what I thought was an open mind. But I quickly got irritated that it was little more than a glorified white paper. The gist of the book is that mobile learning is here and we'd better all get on board. I agree. However, the first 50 pages of this 250-page book is a rehash of what everyone already knows if they're even remotely clued in to the world of device-delivered information and learning, including a long, hairy history of device development. Then Woodill tries to make an argument that mobile learning is qualitatively different from everyday electronic learning. Well, mobile learning is a function of electronic learning; it has its own delivery requirements and constraints, but it's still electronic learning. My biggest beef is that there seemed to be little in the way of material that was specific to being mobile; most of it dealt with what we already know about e-learning, social media interactivity and connectivity, user-generated content, etc.

To be fair, Woodill says that we're at the very beginning stages of mobile learning and there there's a huge amount yet to be learned. He does have listings and descriptions of device apps that allow various learning tasks to be performed. But, for my money, there's not enough hard "how to" that can be applied to mobile learning as a subset of electronic learning. So much of what's in the book seems to be material that any learning professional already knows.

Love the book, it takes the reader from the beginning of mobile learning, the pluses and minuses, highlights the common pitful, gives solid advice, a great read for anyone embarking on a mobile initiative. After the first read the book is very well laid out and lends itself very well to being the on hand reference guide.

I bought this book when I started learning more about mobile concepts and I found this book very good and inspiring. For me, this book gave me some valuable insights regarding mobile since I'm a beginner, so I don't know how it works for advanced or expert people but i passed this book around some colleagues and they gave me good feedback as well.

THE MOBILE LEARNING EDGE: TOOLS AND TECHNOLOGIES FOR DEVELOPING YOUR TEAMS comes from an authority on e-learning and provides a survey of 'new nomadism' in mobile devices which is changing workplaces and making them less dependent on a centralized workplace. Nomads make discoveries as they come across need and problems: this tells how to use mobile technology to foster mobile learning processes and considers how mobile learning takes place. Business collections will find its specific applications to team development provide fine keys to integrating business approaches to mobile opportunities for employee learning.
