311 We’re Going Mobile! (OK, But How?)
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Wednesday, October 24
St. Thomas B
When you move toward designing and delivering mobile learning experiences, many common questions come up. How do you shrink a complex, computer-based, live learning experience down to mobile size for learners on the go? How can you teach nuanced, sophisticated soft skills to a senior-level audience using a mobile platform? What’s different and challenging about designing mobile courseware?
Designing effective and engaging courses for mobile delivery presents a new set of challenges. In this session, you’ll walk through a process for mobile instructional design that addresses practical solutions to constraints such as small screen size, limited typing, and short learning windows. You’ll also take a closer look at a case study to learn about a design and prototyping process that resulted in a mobile learning solution praised by senior-level practitioners for its ease of use and depth of content.
In this session, you will learn:
- About challenges encountered in mobile course design
- Creative solutions to optimize learning and engagement without sacrificing usability in mobile delivery
- Strategies, techniques, and tips to deliver soft-skills training in a mobile format
- A successful design and prototyping approach to mobile course development
Designers, developers, managers, and senior leaders (directors, VP, CLO, executive, etc.).
