What about NFC / iBeacons / Geofencing? Here are a couple of extracts, or check out the full interview on elearningindustry.com Q: We see a lot of promise in capabilities such as Mobile Augmented Reality, Near Field Communication (NFC), and QR Codes holding for ‘contextual mobile learning’. The technologies you mentioned are all ways to do that (NFC / AR / QR-Codes / iBeacons / Image Reco / GPS, etc, etc.). What''s the future of mobile learning?

Enterprise mLearning Predictions for 2012

mLearning Trends

And more advanced operating systems combined with embedded chips will provide support for new forms of proximity computing using Near Field Communication (“NFC”) thus allowing new kinds of location-based services for learning. Here on the last day of the year, I offer my predications for the big and shaping trends we’ll see in the enterprise mobile learning space for 2012.

Enterprise Mobile Learning 2011 - Year in Review

mLearning Trends

My predictions about working on near field/NFC and augmented reality/AR functionality certainly got sidetracked for a variety of reasons (lack of devices in the first case and lack of market interest associated with payment in the second) but that didn’t matter and those missions remain on the long-term road map. a.k.a. How On Target Were My 2011 Predictions?

Enterprise mLearning Predictions for 2011

mLearning Trends

Our own development roadmap is expanding with the many possibilities afforded through upcoming advances like geo-location and near field communications (“NFC”) that may help contextualize learning at a specific location, augmented reality delivering just-in-time learning opportunities via interactive overlays, the use of gaming scenarios integrated within a structured mobile learning experience, and tighter integration between learning and a devices universal inbox function.

mLearning Trends

And more advanced operating systems combined with embedded chips will provide support for new forms of proximity computing using Near Field Communication (“NFC”) thus allowing new kinds of location-based services for learning. The promise of NFC, location-based services and augmented reality-based use cases were not attained either nor did they seem to be compelling enough for our customers to demand these sorts of services – at least not yet.

These four basic influences are (1) geospatial technologies (GIS data, GPS chips, RFID chips, Bluetooth, 2D and 3D bar codes, sensors, and NFC / near-field communication (radio frequency technologies); (2) mobile search (visual search and image capture); (3) social networking, and (4) 3G and 4G networking in terms of wireless technologies—which culminate in location-based learning services.
