Mobile learning is finally coming of age, and many organizations are preparing to implement mobile learning in the coming year. Some start by simply choosing a mobile technology, but the problem is much more complex than this. Conceiving, designing, developing and implementing a mobile learning project is a major undertaking that requires building a mobile learning strategy for your company based on business objectives and the unique characteristics of mobile learning.

Participants in this interactive working session will get a roadmap of 40 "decision points" you'll need to consider in developing your own mobile learning strategy. To illustrate the process, you'll see a case study on developing a mobile learning implementation for a major pharmaceutical company. Each participant will get a "mobile learning strategy" template to fill out during the workshop, which, along with the strategy map, you can use for your own organization.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The ecology of mobile learning and all the components that make it possible
  • A high-level view of the planning process for mobile learning
  • The choices you need to make in order to implement mobile learning
  • The choices made by other organizations
  • How to develop a high-level strategy map to use in discussions within your own organization

Technology discussed in this session: Tablets, and smartphones.

Audience: Novice and intermediate. This session is for those who have a good understanding of the business objectives of their organization, and the basics of mobile learning.
