T104 Leveraging Mobile and Video to Scale Effective Learning
1:00 PM - 1:45 PM Wednesday, June 8
Expo Hall: Tools & Tech Stage
Online learning has addressed two out of the three major learning acts: accessibility and affordability. The third act, efficacy, has yet to be addressed at scale. Luckily, there are effective instructional techniques: practice, peer interactivity, self-reflection, and mentoring. In this session, learn how your organization can go beyond accessibility and affordability to address the third learning act. Now that everyone has a sophisticated video production company in his or her pocket (i.e., mobile phones), anyone can bring the magic of face-to-face learning—where learners practice, interact with one another, self-reflect, and receive coaching—to an online setting without degrading the learning efficacy.
