Mobile Learning 3.0
Presenter: Dr. Nicole House
Bailey 114

Tuesday, November 10 9:00am
Thursday, November 19 3:00pm

Mobile learning was an emerging trend some years ago. Well, we are in the moment as more and more learners are using mobile devices including their cell phones and tablets to access the internet. What a perfect opportunity to supplement your course with a custom support app! In part one of this workshop, participants will discuss the instructional value of mobile learning design, explore adaptive technology samples, and begin construction (with pre-designed graphic elements) on a class support app using Web 2.0 technologies. The facilitator will follow-up with participants individually to schedule Part 2 which is a self-paced project development activity. This workshop offers certification in Mobile Technologies from OIT upon project completion.
