Mobile Learning - ASTD-SCC 3/31 Meeting

American Society for Training & Development - Southern CT chapter meeting (ASTD-SCC)
 
Topic: Mobilize Your Learning: Learning Solutions for a Multi-Device World
 
Monday, March 31, 2014; 5:45-8:00 PM
 
Speaker: Meghan A. Young, Senior Solutions Consultant, Kineo
 
We all get it! We need to create courses that serve learners well beyond the classroom, and even beyond the PC. The very idea of building separate courses for each delivery device seems both complex and costly – or maybe not!
Please join us on March 31st when we de-mystify this challenge. We will explore three timely and related learning topics:
 
Responsive eLearning Design: Learn how eLearning designs can support learners where they are and when they need it!
Multi-Device Delivery: We live in a multi-device world and need to provide mobile delivery and learning support through a number of devices. Learn about one program that fits all needs!
 
Open Source Programming:Open source programs are actively supported and improved by a collaborative community. Typically they are NO-to-low cost for course developers and users. Learn how you can benefit from this novel approach!
We will take a closer look at one program that embraces all three trends. Adapt is an open source tool for multi-device mobile learning that uses a responsive elearning design framework. Adapt creates just one version of elearning in HTML5, which responds intelligently to the device it’s viewed on, including desktops, smartphones and tablets. In this presentation, Meghan A. Young of Kineo will explore some practical examples of how the needs of a number of clients were met with Adapt technology.
