Chad Udell, Float’s Solution Architect, had a chance to attend Design 4 Mobile 2010 in Chicago last week. D4M2010 was a conference all about how to design great user experiences on mobile devices, a topic that is absolutely critical to creating effective mLearning.
In fact, a number of sessions Chad attended had specific impacts to mobile learning. Chad heard Nancy Proctor, Head of Mobile Strategy & Initiatives at the Smithsonian Institution, present her experiences in a session called Mobile in Museums. Nancy covered a number of ways the Smithsonian is using mobile technology to enhance the visitor experience both within the brick and mortar of the museum as well as virtually.
Chad has written an in-depth post about his experience at Design 4 Mobile 2010 on his personal blog: Visualrinse.com complete with a number of very interesting links to presentations and other valuable sources of information. Check it out here. You will find reading his post is well worth your time regardless of your mobile learning interest, be it mlearning strategy, design or development.
