Sales of mobile devices are projected to far exceed sales of desktop devices by 2015. With this brave new reality, learners need to be able to access eLearning through mobile devices, hence the burning need for mLearning. Unfortunately most eLearning courses were not originally designed for mobile devices. If you’re new to mLearning, where do you begin?

Participants in this session will explore the drivers and challenges associated with converting eLearning to mLearning. You will learn the criteria used to determine if you should convert existing eLearning materials to mLearning or just start over. You will discuss some of the cost and design considerations for mLearning, examine various tools for converting eLearning to mLearning, and leave this session with a better understanding of the mobile learning landscape and how you can get started.
