8:30 AM - 9:30 AM Friday, October 26
Many stakeholders want to allow learners to access courses on their phones, and LMSs tout their ability to do that. However, it’s not as simple as clicking “publish.” When creating or modifying eLearning courses for the phone, there are pitfalls you must avoid to ensure an optimal learner experience.
Learn from the speakers’ mistakes as they share case studies and best practices and offer helpful guidelines for getting buy-in, developing, and publishing mobile-first eLearning courses using top authoring tools. You’ll learn the difference between mobile-first and mobile-friendly, how to design based on your goals, and communication tips for your stakeholders to ensure everyone knows the possibilities and limitations.
