905 Mobile Mindset: Alternate Delivery Method or Fundamental Shift in Education?

8:30 AM - 9:30 AM Friday, June 10



While technology has transformed people’s lives, L&D has primarily stayed the same. Sure, the industry has evolved by utilizing technology to access and track content, but it is still focused on the traditional course mentality. Should you be going down the same path with mobile learning? What are the opportunities for mobile to help promote a fundamental change in how and when you provide education?

This session will begin by exploring benefits of anywhere/anytime vs. just in time. Learn how the unique affordances of mobile tech enable you to provide powerful bite-sized contextual learning opportunities at the moment of need, increase knowledge retention, and supply performance support in new ways. You’ll see a wide variety of examples and discuss how these new approaches have provided unique business value to the organization, as well as created a fundamental shift for education and performance support solutions.

In this session, you will learn:

  • About the affordances that mobile technologies bring to the L&D table
