How to Screw Up Your First Enterprise Mobile Learning App

Float managing partner Scott McCormick looks to host this session in taking a look at how companies can right the wrongs of mobile in their enterprises.

Any corporation worth its P&L statement is implementing mLearning to equip their employees with training information at the time of need on mobile devices. The problem is that many of them are doing it wrong and failing on their initial attempts. Uneducated decisions and technological naivete abound as corporate America strives to go mobile in their employee performance support. Scott will share the common blunders Fortune 500 companies make in their mobile learning launches and how to avoid the miscues. The analysis covers mLearning process, design, development, security and delivery. Scott is a partner at Float Mobile Learning, a leader in mobile learning strategy and development. In the last 12 months, he has spoken at national conferences such as the eLearning Guild’s mLearnCon and DevLearn, Training Magazine’s Learning 3.0 and ASTD regional gatherings. He works with global industry leaders in broad-based healthcare, construction and mining equipment and insurance on their mLearning efforts.

The New “Knowledge Economy:” How Mobility and Ubiquity Can Benefit Your Business

Float managing director Chad Udell has organized a potential panel to speak on the benefits that mobile can provide your business. The proposed list of panelists includes B.J. Schone, director of content at I Drive Safely; Kris Rockwell, CEO of Hybrid Learning Systems; Brandon Carson, senior manager of learning and development at Yahoo!; and Aaron Silvers, community manager at Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL).

We are entering an age of constant connectivity and ubiquitous computing. We use devices, the web and our personal knowledge network as we move through spaces, settings and time. This constant stream of data we create and consume is changing how people learn and what we are required to know ahead of time versus what can be accessed at the point of need. Mobile technology has already transformed the way we live, and it’s increasingly transforming the way we work, providing easy access to the right information and enhancing overall productivity.

What big benefits can mobile provide your business in an on-the-go, always connected, information-overload age? Join five industry thought leaders as they discuss this topic from the inside-out.
