Mobile Learning: Delivering Learning in a Connected World

Tuesday, July 10, 2012 12:00pm - 1:00pm EDT  
Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Kevin Oakes, CEO, Institute for Corporate Productivity and John Polaschek, Senior Mgr., Learning Technology, Qualcomm

This webinar is based on ASTD and i4cp's recently published report, Mobile Learning: Delivering Learning in a Connected World. This report looks at the current landscape of mobile learning in a world in which the ubiquity of mobile devices seems to have created a perfect environment for delivering learning solutions to our workforce, where or when they need it. This webinar is sponsored by Upside Learning.

Kevin Oakes, i4cp's CEO, will discuss how mobile technology is changing the world and our experience of it. From an organizational perspective, mobile learning allows for a spectrum of possibilities that were not present before, and they continue to evolve before us. The findings of this Study indicate that companies with learning functions that help meet both learning and business goals tend to be higher market performers. This webinar is free for both ASTD members and nonmembers.
