Mobile is everywhere, but what does that mean, exactly? You know the devices are in hand, so how do you take advantage of them? Here's a hint: mLearning is not about courses on a phone. Mobile may feel like it's too hard to tackle, with the different platforms and form factors, but people are getting real value out of the opportunity. You certainly want to support your people even when they're not tethered to a desktop, so how do you get started?

Performance support is mobile's natural niche, and you should be taking advantage of it. In this session, you'll begin by understanding the fundamental change that is "mobile," and what that means to the employee and the organization. Then you'll explore the different ways mobile goes beyond the course, as a prelude to considering what's involved in getting started. Mobilize your performers!

In this session you will learn:

  • The defining characteristics of mobile
  • Where mobile fits in organizational learning and performance
  • A broader perspective on performance and technology support
  • The unique advantage of mobile
  • The core principle of mobile design

This session is intended for those who are charged with, or looking at, supporting a broader picture than just training, and those who are exploring mobile as an option. This includes managers, executives, and advanced instructional designers or human performance technologists
