SweetRush works with large, global businesses as well as nonprofits and foundations to bring mission-critical mobile learning to leaders, employees, humanitarians and first responders.
San Francisco, Calif., April 10th, 2020—SweetRush, a top global provider of custom solutions for people growth and development, is thrilled to announce it earned a coveted spot on eLearning Industry’s inaugural Top Content Providers for Mobile Learning 2020 list.
SweetRush has been a pioneer in mobile learning, combining a strong focus on meeting organizational and employee performance goals with sound instructional design, agency-level creative, and advanced technology for mobile platforms.
“Today, mobile learning is no longer a ‘nice to have,’ it’s a must-have for organizations,” said Arturo Schwartzberg, Cofounder and Chairman of SweetRush.
SweetRush’s mobile learning solutions offer just-in-time, point-of-need learning that is accessible to learners, and fits within their workday and work environment. Meeting real-time needs is essential, whether that be product knowledge on the retail floor or mission-critical reference for first responders and humanitarians.
“As part of our C.A.R.E. (COVID-19 Action Response eLearning Center) initiative, we’re helping to develop mobile learning for health care professionals on the front line about the proper use and cleaning of masks and personal protective equipment (PPE),” Schwartzberg said. “We’ve also collaborated on a chatbot for humanitarian physical therapists working in Syria, to help them quickly find information and respond to medical situations.”
Mobile learning can be a challenge for organizations to navigate due to the volume and variety of devices, platforms, and authoring tools, which can also make the matrix of testing very complex.
“Our client-partners appreciate that we roll up our sleeves and own these challenges with them, and step up to provide research, consulting, and solutions that meet their unique needs,” Schwartzberg said.
With the COVID-19 pandemic requiring many organizations to move their training online, mobile learning is coming into focus as an important part of the solution. Mobile learning can be part of a strategy to mitigate the need for in-person training and travel, both of which might become challenging during future global events.
“Most companies are looking for mobility and alternative ways to be able to not only offer training anytime, anywhere, but also give their staff the flexibility to work from home,” said Christopher Pappas, founder of the eLearning Industry Network. “But to deliver effective training, especially when there is time pressure, you need a content provider to develop your content. You need an expert to help you build up your community.”
The eLearning Industry judging committee chose SweetRush for the list based on several criteria, including its excellent customer reviews, reputation for innovation, content development quality, solution expertise, and social responsibility.
“Mobile devices are ubiquitous and becoming more powerful and essential, which makes mobile learning a key area for innovation,” Schwartzberg said. “At SweetRush, we’re breaking new ground in mobile with highly interactive Adapt courses, mobile learning games, chatbots, augmented reality, and other types of experiential and social learning. It’s a great time to be in learning and development!”
