3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Thursday, October 26
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.
This session will explore methods for creating engaging learning experiences on phones. You’ll see how you can combine mobile-ready instructional and UI design techniques within Adapt, an open-source mobile learning authoring framework. Adapt supports the creation of responsive, mobile-first eLearning, yet its default offerings are limited, which means you run the risk of creating bad, not-fun courses! You will discover how to think outside the box to increase interactivity and engagement.
