In their hand they have access to an easy-to-use mobile tool for performance support and continuous learning.Read More
For many years, instructional designers have been creating eLearning content in a format that is suitable for a single size screen. With the advent of a mobile workforce and a BYOD office environment, this no longer fills the needs of users today.Read More
Creating responsive courses means you’ll need to look at design in new ways. When building interactive screens, you need to put some thought into how to place the objects on the screen. But for responsive interactions, you need to take this a step further and think about how to display the interactive objects in different device sizes so that people can easily interact with the content.Read More
Selling mobile performance support can be challenging. Your clients or business partners may be unfamiliar with these solutions, lack knowledge of mobile technologies, and think they don’t have the resources (developers, time, money) to support these activities. These obstacles can prevent your clients from seeing mobile performance support as a viable solution. But this kind of solution can be much simpler, more budget-friendly, and easier to support than they expect—at least, it is when you know the right tools.Read More
With so many learners using mobile technologies, instructional designers and training managers feel pressure to approach content development with the mobile experience in mind and take a mobile-first approach. It’s difficult to determine exactly what considerations to include in the content development process, and how to evaluate and create a learning experience that appeals to learners on a variety of devices.Read More
In those first few weeks, new hires feel excitement, uncertainty, enthusiasm, and discomfort. It can be a roller coaster ride!

While it’s great that Adobe Captivate provides the tools to make a mobile learning course quickly, unfortunately this doesn’t mean everything will automatically work well. If you’re not careful, you might create something that technically can be viewed on a mobile device, but is missing key functionality or just isn’t a good experience on mobile. This can create serious user frustration and lead to people disengaging from what you’ve built (or even not finishing it at all).Read More
This session will focus on the learning GlobalEnglish experienced during the development of a new mobile app. Presenters will explore what motivated the company to develop a new app, the approach they took, and what they learned along the way.Read More
As learners go mobile, demand for learning on phones has increased. Yet options for delivering a responsive, mobile-first, and interactive experience have been limited—until now! Join this interactive session to learn how two organizations embrace an open-source tool to develop elegant, impactful, and engaging learning. Learn how to take advantage of technology, “Adapt” your approach to design and development, and embrace best practices for interactive mobile learning.Read More
A growing number of participants in live online virtual training classes are joining by mobile device, which means they connect via the platform mobile app instead of using the full desktop program. This creates a problem because most virtual training designs assume that all tools and features will be available for learning activities, yet most virtual classroom apps only have limited features. So how should you design for learning transfer?Read More
