F01 Realizing the Real Potential of Mobile

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Wednesday, June 8

Lone Star A-E

After more than half a decade, what’s the current state of mobile learning? Looking around the industry, one would think that little has changed since 2010. The focus still seems to be on porting your content over and designing small courses and modules for your learners. This is a core problem holding mobile learning back at many organizations today. They’re missing the bigger picture.

In this session, you will deconstruct the issues that are holding organizations back from realizing the true potential of mobile. You will engage in a discussion that will help you, and the industry, get mobile efforts back on track. The reason organizations are not seeing results with mobile endeavors isn’t that what they’ve produced is bad; it’s just that they’ve made things that aren’t particularly useful. In this session, you will explore some frequent, fundamental mistakes and find a path to correct them, focusing on the best that mobile learning has to offer.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Why the potential of mobile seems out of reach
  • About the true potential of mobile technologies for learning
  • About the differences between quality and usefulness
  • From mobile mistakes that have been made by many organizations

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