Session description:

Mobile learning has been talked about for at least ten years, but is only now becoming a realistic possibility. That is because the technological advances needed for new innovative applications are just now coming on stream.

As well, after the first wave of posting text materials to small screens showed the limitations of using mobile devices for traditional content, new approaches and applications of mobile learning that use the unique characteristics of mobile devices to their full advantage are finally moving it to the next stage of development. These new approaches include mobile gaming, augmented reality, location based services, collaboration, and mobile performance support.

Join Dr. Gary Woodill as he explores this new world of mobile learning, and find out how you can use it in employee training.
