SA105 Mobile Learning Isn’t All About Mobile Learning
2:00 PM - 2:45 PM Tuesday, June 24
New Directions Stage
Some new directions in mobile learning are obvious, but other new directions may surprise you. The mobile revolution is about more than just smaller devices. The cloud and its supporting technologies keep our mobile devices connected and content synchronized across multiple devices 24/7. Smaller screens have forced software platforms to create minimal, and flexible, user-interface elements to support the seamless movement from desktop to mobile-content consumption. The introduction of the mobile ecosystem has had an impact across everything we do. In this session we’ll look at the mobile ecosystem’s impact on the training function. We’ll talk about the obvious impacts like smaller, more easily consumed learning chunks. But we’ll also look at how new platform technologies, driven by the mobile era, have disrupted the training department, it’s functions, and those responsible for creating, delivering, and tracking training content.
