Many organizations want to provide small chunks of on-demand, just-in-time performance support that require minimal technical skills to create. Likewise, capturing and sharing tacit knowledge is becoming a top priority. Is it possible to create a solution that will both engage the learner and that can be measured and evaluated?

Session participants will learn how to create quick, effective mobile learning through YouTube-style videos. Using real examples of successful videos as discussion points, you will walk through a simple workflow of developing a short tutorial using different levels of rapid-development tools. You will also discuss publishing formats and using comments to engage the learner and capture feedback. You’ll leave with workflows to develop various types of video tutorials and make them available to learners within your organization. The steps and examples demonstrated will provide practical ideas for implementing video as part of a mobile learning strategy.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to create YouTube-style tutorials with rapid development tools
  • Practical ways to implement video as part of a mobile-learning strategy
