Designing Mobile Learning Experiences for Higher Education


Mobile has been the fastest growing industry, ever. In the developed world, mobile subscriptions are flattening, not due to a lack of interest but from market saturation. The developing world isn't far behind. What this means is that mobile opportunities are here, now. The question is, how do you take advantage of them? In this seminar, we will get specific about what mobile is and is not. And we will do this actively, allowing you to exercise these concepts for your own context. The goal is to get your mind around mobile and figure out how to take advantage of the prevalence of these devices in ways that make sense for your organization. The devices are out there. What are you waiting for?
