EME204 Mobile Performance Support Options for Non-programmers

1:15 PM - 2:00 PM Thursday, November 17

Expo Hall—Emerging Tech Stage

Realistically, there are multiple ways a mobile performance support app can be built, all with their own benefits and drawbacks. Depending on a developer’s skill level, there are several options such as building a custom app, using your company’s or client’s existing infrastructure, or building a website and packaging it into an app.

In this session, you will address the need to create a mobile performance support option that is easy to access and easy to use. The session will cover possible solutions for mobile performance support that anyone who is “slightly techie,” but not a programmer, can build. You’ll also look at solutions for individuals or small teams that require less development effort.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to recognize when a performance support tool may benefit your learning audience
  • How technology is changing the way companies provide performance support
  • About barriers to success when implementing your solution
  • Tips to get started developing a PS solution
  • How you can use an app to make information more accessible

Novice to advanced designers, developers, project managers, and managers.
