Conference Archive

DevLearn 2018 Conference & Expo - October 24, 2018

Damien Bruyndonckx

COO & Pedagogical Director

A growing number of learners use mobile devices to take their eLearning courses. While modern authoring tools make creating responsive content easier than ever, testing it is cumbersome at best. You must take into account a growing number of screen sizes and form factors, test how your interactions translate to a touch screen, account for limited bandwidth, etc., while having access to a limited number of testing devices.

In this hands-on session, you will discover a handful of free and easy-to-use solutions to transform your workstation into a powerful testing environment. You will leverage the developer tools of your web browser to effectively emulate the mobile situation. You will learn how to configure any device and how to simulate limited bandwidth, using tools built into your web browser. You will also learn how you can use Browsersync, an open-source testing tool, to host your eLearning content so you can test it using your own mobile device without configuring a complicated IT infrastructure.

In this session, you will learn:

  • That the mobile experience is not limited to smaller screen sizes and layout adaptations
  • How to access and use the developer tools of your web browser to emulate any mobile device
  • How to install and use Browsersync
  • How to test your eLearning content on your actual mobile device using your Wi-Fi network
