The National Financial Educators Council and LearnCast® announce the final development stage of a comprehensive mobile personal finance mobile application. The objective of the mobile financial literacy course is to “provide people convenient access to real world personal finance lessons that can improve their lives,” according to the company’s website.
Digital learning is quickly becoming the standard as shown by the recent adoption of Apple iPads, Androids and digital tablets in schools and businesses around the globe. LearnCast® provided the Mobile Learning Platform and development team while the NFEC provided the personal finance curriculum.
The mobile personal finance app includes lessons on ten money management topics that range from setting financial goals through basic investment principles. These lessons are delivered through: videos, quick tips, interactive surveys, guides and real time testing.
“LearnCast leads the industry in mobile learning and their platform enables us to deliver high quality content to learners quickly.
