mLearning Mastery: How to Make eLearning for Every Device (Example Included!)
September 28 • 1:30 PM EDT (GMT-4)
The mobile learning revolution has arrived. If you haven’t already started thinking about designing and developing your learning so that it looks good on different mobile devices, you will find yourself falling behind—but this free mLearning webinar with Joe Ganci, aka eLearningJoe, is here to help. Creating mobile-ready eLearning is easy if you have the right tool! Make sure that your tool doesn’t just shrink your learning down to the size of a mobile device, but that it gives you the ability to customize for both tablets and for smart phones, both in landscape and portrait modes, all in one file.
This is what responsive design is all about. You can see most commercial websites are now responsively designed. Using Lectora, you can also make your learning look perfect for each device. You don’t have to make copies of your lesson file for each type of device, and customize each one: therein lies madness! Every time you have to update your lesson, you’d have to update it in several different files. On the other hand, using responsive design, you end up with just one file to maintain. How beautiful is that?
In this session, Joe Ganci will help you:
- Apply the right mobile learning strategy in your organization by illustrating the proper steps to take
- Build responsively designed lessons by giving you the best tips and tricks to achieve the best mobile results
- Customize an immersive and interactive Lectora sample, with source, that will look good both on desktop and in mobile, in portrait and landscape
You’ll want to be present live during this event, so you can ask questions that you may already have or that occur to you during the session. Make sure you shoo everyone away during the hour of this presentation so that you can learn and interact with Joe and the other participants!
Recorded Webinar: xAPI in Practice - Moving Beyond SCORM to a Big Data Future
The Big Data floodgates have opened, yet most organizations have very little insight into the learning they are delivering beyond who took and completed a course. The problem is that learning technology has traditionally been unable to capture much else. The advent of the Experience API (xAPI) seeks to fundamentally change the way organizations deliver, track and measure learning.
As the learning ecosystem expands to include social, mobile, collaborative and other informal experiences, organizations need a solution to track and measure their efforts in these areas. xAPI is poised to set organizations free from the restrictions of SCORM and allow them to explore new learning opportunities.
Join David Wentworth, Principal Learning Analyst with Brandon Hall Group and John Blackmon, CTO of Trivantis as they discuss the xAPI standard and look at practical applications companies are using today.
Discussion topics include:
- What is xAPI and why does it matter?
- What are the practical applications of xAPI?
- Examples of xAPI in practice
- The future of learning standards
