901 Cutting the Complexity of Your Mobile Learning Solutions
8:30 AM - 9:30 AM Thursday, June 22
Developing mobile learning solutions can become complicated if you’re not careful. One wrong turn can leave you mired in extra work you didn’t anticipate. Sometimes this happens due to design decisions. In other cases, the problem stems from choosing the wrong tool, failing to set up templates properly, or any number of other issues. Thankfully, one of the best ways to figure out how to reduce or even avoid your development complexity is simple: Look at successes and snags from previous projects.
In this session, you’ll examine the complexity of developing mobile learning solutions through examples of problems faced during the development of real mobile learning courses and performance support tools. You’ll explore these actual projects and take a closer look at the issues that made their development more complex than it needed to be. You’ll get a chance to hear from the developer himself about how, in retrospect, he’d reduce this complexity; and you’ll also have an opportunity to formulate your own ideas for simplifying these processes.
In this session, you will learn:
- About the impact of choosing the wrong type of tool for the task
- Techniques for making templates easier to use
- Tips for efficient mLearning programming in a variety of authoring tools
- Proven approaches to troubleshooting problems when they arise
Novice to intermediate designers and developers.
