Leading European e-learning and communications specialist LINE Communications says there has been a dramatic increase in the number and quality of enquiries for mobile learning.

The firm, whose operations are split between Sheffield and London, recently helped pilot an app for iPhones and iPods designed to help sales staff explain some of the features on Ford’s new C-MAX people carrier and developed an iPad app for the Army.

LINE says it has received an unprecedented level of enquiries from private and public sector organisations for learning materials covering a broad range of subject, delivered using iPad, iPhone, Blackberry and other mobile devices, types from leadership development to procedural training and soft skills training.

LINE director Steve Ash said: “This massive upsurge in interest is hugely encouraging.

“Last year we had a number of speculative enquiries. This year the requests are for actual pieces of work either delivered in isolation or as part of a larger blended learning programme.”

n LINE achieved record sales during February, continuing its success in 2010, when the company had four quarters of record sales.

New projects include significant developments in mobile learning strategies as well as major programmes of blended learning which employ anything from face to face instruction to video conferencing, computers and mobile phones.
