8:30 AM - 9:30 AM Thursday, June 26
mLearning is about much more than just mobile technology. mLearning is a different experience than desktop-based eLearning, coming with its own unique set of design considerations and challenges. Organizations considering making the move to mobile need to understand the challenges of creating content for mobile devices if they want their mobile learning strategy to be successful.
In this case-study session you will explore the continuing journey PricewaterhouseCoopers is taking as they continue to learn from their experiences with content authoring for mLearning. You will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of a number of different mLearning authoring tools, and learn from actual examples and demonstrations of content.
