ATD Detroit October 2015 Meeting
"Making the Most of mLearning Tools, Templates, Models, and Patterns"
Lead Programmer & Learning Technology Consultant
Innovative Learning Group (ILG)
Advance Registration Ends at 3pm onProgram Summary
Monday, October 12th
This session will draw on a mixture of practical mLearning development experience and widely accepted computer science principles to uncover the pros and cons of various mLearning authoring tools, templates, models and patterns.
Matt will cover authoring tool selection concepts that are relevant for all eLearning and mLearning programmers. The key focus is on selecting the right tools for specific needs instead of a “best tool” for all purposes. Once an authoring tool is chosen, productivity can be enhanced by understanding reusable functions, separation of content and functionality, debugging functionality, selection of proper level of abstraction and selection of appropriate level of rigor for reusability.
Matt will present real world examples from actual mLearning courses and tools, as well as cover the above concepts and illustrate how making use of templates, models and patterns can enhance the authoring tool chosen.
By the end of this session, learners will be able to:
- Identify strengths and weaknesses of tools, templates, models, and patterns.
- Identify pros and cons of various authoring tools.
- Communicate tips for improving mLearning programming efficiency using authoring tool composition.
- Communicate tips for efficient mLearning programming in a variety of authoring tools
