A Complete Collection of All Mobile-Related Sessions, Events and Exhibitors

Conferences Comments (3)

DevLearnthe world’s largest eLearning event held by the eLearning Guild on the management, design, and development of technology-based learning – is in its 13th year, and will be held in Las Vegas, from October 20-25.

Float Mobile Learning will be there, with a booth in the exhibit area (#116), and several of our mobile learning experts presenting sessions during the conference.

DevLearn is about all learning technologies, so in order to help you find mobile learning content and exhibitors at DevLearn, I have collected the various charts on the conference website into a master schedule of mobile learning sessions throughout the conference, and a list of mobile learning exhibitors.
