B.Y.O.L.® (Bring Your Own Laptop®) sessions ensure that you receive in-depth, hands-on training, and while following along with the instructor step-by-step.

Flash is becoming less of an option, especially for mobile devices; this leaves many Flash developers out in the cold. Learning how to do full HTML5 and JavaScript programming can be a daunting task unless your able to spend hours learning how to do all the programming by hand. Adobe Edge Animate is like Flash for HTML5: It uses a similar interface, so Flash developers can be up and running quickly creating animations and interactions that will play on mobile devices. Edge Animate allows you to quickly build custom learning interactions with more control than any standard eLearning tool, but can still be imported into most eLearning authoring tools or wrapped inside of a PhoneGap mobile project.

Attendees will come to this hands-on session and learn the basics of how to create custom interactive learning activities that will play on any mobile device. This allows them to go beyond the restrictions of any eLearning authoring tool and build custom mobile compatible interactions with greater flexibility. You can do most of the interactivity without even knowing any code.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Adobe Edge Animate interface basics
  • How to animate objects in Adobe Edge along the timeline
  • Creative interactive movie clips/buttons
  • How to create drag and drop mobile interactions
  • Ways to wrap your interaction as an installed application using PhoneGap

All levels of designers, developers, and project managers.
