mLearning: Tips and Techniques for Planning, Analysis, and Design

The day is coming when more learning will happen on mobile devices (tablets and smartphones) than on traditional computers. But good mLearning is not classroom training or eLearning converted to the touchscreen. Rather, mLearning calls for a new approach to planning, analysis, design, development, and implementation. Join this Online Forum to examine the first three elements of this new approach: planning your mLearning implementation, analyzing your learners' and stakeholders' needs, and designing instruction that will work well in mobile environments. (Note: The November 14 & 15 Online Forum focuses on the second part of this approach: development and implementation.)
