The article begins by talking about corporate podcasting but strives generally to say that the future of corporate learning is mobile. "Imagine that it's 1998 and your company doesn't have a website or an intranet... That's about where we are with mobility right now." Certainly this is a better alternative to the traditional classroom course, which "simply doesn't work for the mobile generation, which places a premium on autonomy." It's not just about the mobility, and not just about the time-shifting. "Podcasting allows employees to take responsibility for their own learning and trusts them to understand and act on what they need to know to succeed in their jobs."
