    RodneyBeach,Director & eLearning ConsultantWhether you have an internal resource, teamr need to rely on a vendor, its importanthat when you kick-off an eLearning project,ou have a cohesive team, identify the risksnd agree on a project design methodologyhat is going to maximise the success of theLearning project.

    Peter Hawkins, Managing Director,Global Vision Media mLearning (or Mobile Learning) offers aunique set of privileges that far surpassthe conventional eLearning pedestalitself. mLearning is spontaneous, hugelycustomized and not to mention, low cost &portable. Yet, just a cursory understandingalone does not suffice.

    Jeevan Joshi, Director Client Solutions AsiaPacific, Upside Learning For Learning & Development (L & D)professionals, it is imperative to understandmLearning not just from the point of viewof creating & developing but also deploying.And unless the design & strategy can beunderstood alongside a perspective onIT, which many happen to overlook, the

    understanding itself is rendered incomplete.

    About the workshop:Technology is moving inexorably towards delivering to us what we as humans considers works best. Every newdevelopment more closely resembles the way our everyday communication unfolds and mobile technology is noexception. Few of us understand the impact of content being delivered as a monologue and in a generic one sizefits all way.

    We also know that the human attention span can be hugely short-lived, yet continue to deliver high doses of content.This is clearly because we have never had an option to provide manageable instructions which people can aptlyapply.

    It should come as no surprise that Mobile Learning is taking over all other forms of communication and theinevitability of this shift means that it is incumbent on all to understand Mobile Learning holistically.

    This hands-on workshop will cover:

    The applications, design and strategies for a remarkable Mobile Learning roll out

    Enable you to identify and understand what mLearning does well and more importantly, what it does less well

    Learn ways to maximize mLearning strengths to improve training outcomes

    Picking your moment delivery at the right instant

    About the workshop:Mobile connections are officially set to overtake the world population in 2014, as if they havent already. Mobilelearning (mLearning) empowers unique styles of learning, teaching, and assessment, while at the same timeaddresses the limitation of learning location with the mobility of portable devices.

    Yet, like every other technology, mLearning presents its own unique challenges. Badly designed and implementedmLearning results in poor business outcomes and loss of reputation. mlearning demands a clear strategy for design,as well as deployment. Another area which remains obscure is a simple yet clear understanding of IT, critical to theentire process.

    This workshop is designed to equip participants with a thorough grasp of essential elements of designing andimplementing mLearning, bas
