806 The Mobile Learning Primer: Getting Going with mLearning

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Thursday, June 9



mLearning has been on the radar for a few years now, but many organizations are still getting started. And that’s a vulnerable position; there are a number of mistakes that are easy to repeat if you haven’t been paying attention and really gotten steeped in the possibilities. Further, the field is changing rapidly. Yet with some basic models that help you “think different,” you’re ready to take advantage.

This session will lay out frameworks that will help you recognize the real opportunities mobile has. Working from both principle and pragmatics, you’ll explore the potential in ways that prepare you to adapt to the changes. You’ll learn about common barriers that can trip you up, and you’ll leave with principles, tips, and examples. You will gain the framework to develop your plan to get started with mLearning.

In this session, you will learn:

  • About core mobile affordances
  • About new mobile opportunities
  • About common mobile mistakes
  • Practical tips for mobile success

Novice designers, developers, managers, and directors.

Technology discussed in this session:
Smartphones, tablets, HTML5, apps, and wrapped apps.
