The buzz from Learning Solutions 2011 is still humming. But for me, its time to move on to Mobile Learning and mLearnCon.com.
The web site is up and running and you can start planning your event today. Mobile technologies seem to be flooding the market on a daily basis. They get smaller, faster, and cheaper. If you are in elearning, whether a n00b or tested old timer, you need to get up to speed on mobile learning. Get your travel approval today and make it happen. You will not regret it.
I am very excited to have Jeremiah Owyang and Amber MacArthur keynoting mLearnCon. And then closing out the event will be a great panel conversation.
The mLearning Future Zone and MOSHPit will also be back. And of course there will be Master Classes giving you an up close and personal look at the tools of mlearning. The stages of Guild events offer additional content in a comfortable relaxed format.
Aaron Silvers, is back as the host of the mLearning Future Zone. With a deep and varied background in eLearning Aaron understands all aspects of the industry at a level matched by very few. He sees the future of mlearning from many different angles and brings that to the stage with experts challenging your thoughts on what mobile learning will be. Neil Lasher is also back for a second year hosting the Mobile Operating System Help stage....better known as the MOSH Pit. Neil has unique ideas on what mlearning should be and what the landscape of mlearning systems offers us today. He will bring a collection of great speakers to help you understand the systems of mlearning and how you can make sense of it all.
As mobile devices become more prevalent we may find that mLearning is just part of the increasing landscape of elearning. But until that day comes its important that we take time to gather and discuss the challenges we face as an industry.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone in San Jose this June.
