The tablet market is growing at an exponential rate. Tablets are no longer limited to entertainment purposes, but now are a part of organisational L&D activities across businesses large and small. However there is still a degree of hesitation to make the switch to tablet learning, perhaps brought on by typical myths associated with Mobile Learning. Further, the designing complexity of tablets brought about by their sizes and operating systems, elevates the degree of hesitation.
