DevLearn 2009 eHandouts | Session 114 Low Cost Mobile Learning

November 21, 2009

Thanks to everyone who could make our DevLearn09 session (#114) on delivering low cost mobile solutions. Please find the session (embedded slideshare) handouts below. There were many amazing presentations to catch, so if you missed it, check out a nicely written summary from the eLearning Weekly blog (BJ Schone rocks!).

Looking forward to staying in touch with the many familiar and new peers online. See you on the cloud!


Twellow DevLearn 09!

November 9, 2009

To make the technology-enabled social networking easier (i.e. Twitter), I created a “Hello my Name is” Twitter sticker for attendees to write their twitter user name on. This will hopefully make the Twitter business card exchange must faster.

My fantastic fellow T-Mobile co-worker Jeff Tillett and I will be printing them and handing them out at our presentation on how to develop low cost mobile learning solutions on Wednesday (114).

Feel free to download and print this 3”x5” Twitter sticker to write your Twitter user name.

I am looking forward to attending the many DevLearn inspirational presentations on innovative learning (gaming, mobile and social), as well as the usual informal conversation with (in my humble opinion) the best minds in the eLearning world.
See you there!


Real-time Collaboration * Google Wave

May 30, 2009

The geniuses behind Google Maps recently announced Google Wave, which they are calling a “personal communication and collaboration tool”. It is a browser application (HTML 5)  that brings the opportunity to “collate” and evolve emails and traditional documents into a real-time collaborative experience that will integrate instant messaging, wiki (read-write) and social networking components.  You can also easily embed these “wave” conversations on blogs to share the discussion…pretty cool!

BONUS points – Google Waves works on Android mobile devices. I repeat…Google Waves works on Android mobile devices. Check out the video below!!! I cannot wait to try out on my G1. Being a huge fan of Gmail and Google Documents, I just signed up for the alpha and am VERY, VERY interested in how a tool like this can be used to streamline business communication and collaboration. HEADS UP teammates and peers out there, get ready for the Mark Wave…coming soon!

They are not only calling it an application but also a platform and protocol. Being open source, Google is looking for the community to try out, see what works and extend it to make it better.

I like this quote about email-

“…email (aka snail mail), which was invented 40 years ago, is still today is the most popular communication tool….but lacks the experience of real-time SMS etc. ”
