F5 Why Mobile Is Critical to the Future of Learning and Performance
2:45 PM - 3:45 PM Wednesday, October 29
Because mobile technologies have changed how we live our daily lives, it is natural to assume that they will also change how we learn. However, some might suggest that mLearning, as a method of supporting learning and performance, is more hype than substance. They built this critique upon a flawed foundation that considers mLearning through the lens of eLearning. mLearning is not eLearning on a mobile device; it is much, much more than that. This panel discussion will explore why mobile technologies are a critical driver for the future of learning and performance, why mobile is critical to the learning conversation, and how mLearning is an entirely new world for learning and performance that we must explore. You will learn how organizations are reinventing learning and performance using mobile technologies, and how you and your organization can utilize mobile in innovative ways. Panelists are members of the advisory group for the mLearnCon Conference and Expo.
