London, January 25, 2012: Skill-Pill M-Learning (SPML) has announced a key partnership with London Business School - one of the world’s leading business schools.

As mobile partner, SPML, a leader in mobile learning, will play a role to support the School’s programmes, in particular those focusing on Executive Education, but also to explore other types of collaboration.

This announcement follows a pilot project run by London Business School to assess the benefit of skill-pills, succinct mobile learning video content, to executive participants of various programmes. The High Performance People Skills (HPPS) programme, for example, sent a series of skill-pills at different times, to prepare and support the delegates. One particular innovation was to create an avatar of Professor Nigel Nicholson (click here to see the video) to welcome the participants and set-out the objectives that needed to be achieved before starting the course.

As well as custom content, SPML will also provide access to a mobile video library produced in conjunction with Pearson Learning. This service is already being rolled out to some of London Business School’s major corporate clients.

SPML founder Gerry Griffin comments: “I am delighted about the partnership with London Business School and I am looking forward to exploring new mutual learning avenues”.

Melissa Carson, Chief Operating Officer in Executive Education, London Business School, adds: “We are very excited about this new collaboration with Skill-Pill, and we look forward to sharing ideas as well as exploring new commercial and technology opportunities. We see mobile channels as an innovative way to embed the learning points of our programmes”.
