Float Learning and Bradley University’s Department of Interactive Media in the Slane College of Communications and Fine Arts teamed up to provide a one-day event focused on mobile on Friday, June 10, 2011. Industry-leading speakers on user experience, learning and strategy presented an invaluable amount of information about mobile design, development and strategy. Marketing departments, learning departments and IT professionals benefitted from the actionable information they could take back to their organizations to invigorate their own mobile efforts. Two tracks focused on Business and Strategy, as well as Design and Development.
Jeff Tillett, a former senior instructional design engineer (innovation evangelist) at T-Mobile, discussed Organizations and Mobile. The growth of mobile will ultimately influence the ways in which organizations choose to use the devices for both internal and external communication. This talk examined current mobile trends and their relationships to both existing and future communication channels.
Tillett has been working with computers and Internet technologies for about twenty years as a graphic designer and web developer. As a survivor of the Internet boom, he has gained some very valuable experiences. He has worked for large software corporations and on small teams with start-up companies, and he said it has been a lot of fun being part of history as it has unfolded. “A lot has changed since I started in this field,” Tillett said. “The Internet not only has changed how we do business, but it has changed how we communicate altogether.”
