There is good news and bad news now that mobile learning is becoming more prevalent in the workspace.
Now that more companies are training their employees using mobile devices, there are more use cases, new ideas, deployments and case studies and metrics out there. That’s all good. More usage equals more results to learn and grow from.
But, like any new approach in training process and implementation that gets more widespread use, a certain amount of white noise begins to surface and it can be difficult to sift through the clutter.
How can you separate the useful from the less helpful?
I will try and help do just that when I speak at the Training Magazine Conference on Monday, Feb. 3, in San Diego. This Polar Vortex 2 that we are experiencing right now in most of the country should be incentive enough to head out to Southern California.
My presentation is called “Truths, Myths and Proven Practices for Enterprise mLearning,” (Session 213 at 10:45). Attendees and I will take a look at topics such as the following…
- instructional design
- user interface design
- content strategy
- development tools and options
…as well as glean information that is helpful for a learning professional’s everyday work process.
For instance, what does “Less is More” mean when it comes to design? How does asking “What if?” move you towards a possible mLearning solution? Who is the most important stakeholder?
Probably the most fun is to try to tackle some of the attendee’s specific mobile learning challenges, as well. We will look at some actual applications and talk about how they went from concept to completion. It should be a packed hour of mLearning enlightenment.
The Training Magazine Conference is an incredible event of networking and knowledge-gathering. If you are going to attend, please find me and introduce yourself. And, I would love to have you attend my presentation if it works into your schedule. Also, if you have a mobile learning project that is part of your 2014 goals, let’s sit down over a cup of coffee and talk about it. We could sit outside without the coffee freezing!
See you in sunny San Diego!
