Making Mobile Training Work
Presented by Tim Harmon
Training and development leaders have long known the importance of mobile. Yet, progress has been minimal. Why? What has held us back? We believe our approach to capturing mobile’s potential in the training space has been fundamentally incorrect – in general, undervalued and overcomplicated. The April SIG presentation will provide insight on what we, as trainers, can do to Make Mobile Training Work.
Tim Harmon will unveil a few “dirty little secrets” regarding mobile learning while discussing ways in which your organization can truly bring training value through mobile. He also will go well beyond theory, as much of his presentation will focus on a case study within a major retailer. Tim will talk through how Learner Mobile was deployed and the project’s successes and bumps along the way. He also will highlight best practices for rolling out a product of this scope. During the discussion session to follow, Tim will address the following questions on how to Make Mobile Training Work.
- What type of training works best for mobile?
- How should my employees’ smartphones be leveraged for training and development?
- How should we go about proving the value of mobile performance support?
- What are the dirty little secrets of mobile learning?
- What are the best practices and common pitfalls when deploying mobile performance support?
- What does the future of mobile hold and what are some ways I can put it to use in my organization?
