Moving into Mobile Learning (Myra Travin)

According to Pew Research, 90% of American adults owned a cell phone as of 2014. This unprecedented access to mobile wireless devices such as tablets and mobile phones is transforming education in our workplaces into mobile-first environments that meet the need for learners' anytime/anywhere, 24-7 access demands. It’s past a wave and has moved into a tsunami of disruptive change for learning designers. How can you move into mobile design?

This presentation will describe the revolution into mobile learning for the lay learning and development person looking for the first steps to take and outline the advantages and concerns of mobile multi-device design and delivery.  A case-study with successful implementation using open-source tools will be outlined, as well as five key questions to consider before taking the next step.

Learner Engagement with MOOCs (Nicole Bunselmeyer)

When was the last time you heard a learner say, “I am going to hang out on our corporate LMS and see what’s going on.” The answer is easy. Never. However, we do know that learners are seeking rich and engaging mobile learning experiences. We also know that if you treat the training less like training and more like an experience – learners will flock. In this micro session we’ll look at how curation, moderation and communication is used in corporate MOOCs to grab and hold a learners’ attention and keep ‘em coming back for more.


Agile- Businesses are leveraging a new way of working which allows for less risk, lower cost, quicker to market solutions with more innovative products and services.  The Introduction to Agile course will provide students with knowledge and understanding of fundamental Agile principles and practices and benefits of Agile, Scrum and Kanban.  The course will also introduce a powerful productivity tool useful for large groups or a single person.

Matt Kramer is currently a Scrum Master Manager for Capital One Investing and has been working with Agile methodologies for the past 6 years.  As well as mentoring and leading a team of Scrum Masters Matt Coaches organizations through the transition and adoption of customized Agile solutions.
