Mobile Learning Certificate

Kick start your move to mobile.

Companies are aggressively looking for ways mobile technologies can give them a competitive edge. A significant area in which to find this advantage is in mobile learning and performance improvement. Mobile learning (m-learning) is becoming an important area of focus for many organizations looking to push learning and development to a growing mobile audience that has smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. How do companies take their significant investment in e-learning and convert it for use in a mobile world? There is still a strong belief among people who are not intimately familiar with mobile learning that mobile learning is nothing more than e-learning on a mobile device. But the fact is that proper conversion of content to mobile learning requires instructional design and development skills for mobile learning.

Strategy, media development, deployment strategies, and everything in between will be discussed in this series.

At the end of this program, you will be able to:

  • Incorporate the appropriate mobile learning opportunities into the organizational learning strategy.
  • Apply best practices and solid design principles to mobile learning development.
  • Identify the differences between mobile web and a mobile app and determine the best option for your content and organization.
  • Design maps, sketches, and wireframes for mobile learning.
  • Apply a comprehensive process for designing a mobile learning application.

Technical Requirements: Participants will need to bring a laptop (PC or Mac) and a mobile device (Android phone, iPhone, or any tablet) to the workshop. It is critical to have the most up-to-date browser on your laptop. Google Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer 9 are all recommended.

The Mobile Learning Certificate runs from January 22–23, 2018. The workshop begins promptly at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 4:30 p.m. each day.
