    Meaning of "It's far more common to be...."

    Dear Teachers,

    I'm reading an article of "Kirstie Donnelly", talking about "Learning on the move: how m-learning could transform training and development."

    Would you please tell me the meaning of this sentence...

    "Although these devices play an invaluable part in accessing mobile learning, it is worth noting that mobile learning itself will rarely be the primary delivery platform for learning. It is far more common to be used as part of a blended approach or in extending a course offering, often through ongoing access to tutors and further learning support.

    I learnt from this website that "it's worth noting that... means it's important.."

    But I have no idea with "It's far more common..." I don't know whether it's an idiom or what.... and the meaning of it....???

    Help me please....

    I'll add to "it's important",

    It's important to pay attention to and notice ...

    'it's far more common means that in two situations something occurs much more in one than the other. Two examples:

    Japanese doesn't make extensive use of pronouns like you, he, she, they, I, etc. very much. Pronouns are far more common in English.

    Both southern and northern Saskatchewan have lakes but lakes are far more common in the north.
