Online Forums 2011 - September 15, 2011
2011 is “The Year of the Tablet,” and the options are plentiful and diverse. Next-generation tablets can handle a variety of content types for engaging learning and performance support, but what works on one tablet might not work on others. So how does an iPad differ from an Android tablet or a RIM PlayBook in terms of content creation, delivery, and security? Should organizations limit themselves to one device or are there business cases for using two or more?
In this case-study session, you'll learn how a variety of commercial and public sector organizations are leveraging enterprise mobile learning platforms and tools to design, distribute, and securely manage on-the-go training, mobile performance support, and business communications to thousands of workers, including the industry's largest tablet deployment to date of more than 30,000 devices. You’ll see demonstrations of how tablets are changing the way enterprise organizations design, produce, distribute, and manage digital content for their sales teams and field service personnel. You’ll also learn how the content-creation process is changing to enable “single sourcing” of materials that move from desktop to mobile to tablet to print with nominal effort.
In this session, you will learn:
- The broad differences across popular tablet and devices
- The similarities and differences between how content is designed and deployed to varied tablets and other mobiles
- How to compare Flash content to HTML5-based equivalents
- Which tablet device class is the more secure and scalable
