M-Learning 101: I’ll Take My Rapid E-Learning to Go. Last week I spent a couple of days in San Jose at mLearnCon.
Lots of interesting stuff. One thing that stood out was that most people haven’t jumped into the pool yet. Lots of interest, but not a lot of implementation. The challenge for many people is figuring out what mobile learning is and what they can do to get started. And they don’t want to spend a lot of money doing so. You Already Have a Great Mobile Learning Tool Sometimes we make things complicated. The good thing is that you can stick your toes into the mobile learning waters with little investment and actually produce a viable product. If you want to get started with mobile learning, all you need is PowerPoint. Simple Ways to Get Started So you have the tool. Android devices play your current Flash content. Before you spend a lot of time reworking your current content it’s important to know that the Android devices and most non-Apple tablets already play your current Flash content.
“What about the real tablet?” Screenr Tidbits: Slides: Developing a Learning Strategy for Mobile and Social (Keynote) How should a modern organization factor in mobile devices and social technologies into their learning programs?
That’s the exact question the Altimeter Group was posed with to answer for the mLearnCon 2011 conference today in San Jose. In fact, we found that there’s six distinct disruptions that need to be harnessed which we call the: Framework: The Mobile & Social Learning Honeycomb These six ‘cells’ so to speak have 6 opportunities to take advantage of, they include: Who Creates: From Expert to CrowdWho Learns: From Siloed to GroupWhat Curriculum Is: From Static to DynamicWhen It Takes Place: From Fixed Time to Time-ShiftedWhere it takes place: From Fixed Location to AnywhereHow it is consumed: From Comprehensive to Component-based A big thanks to Researcher Andrew Jones (Twitter, Blog), and Research Intern Andy Nguyen (Twitter), for their help on this research. Above: Framework: Mobile & Social Learning Honeycomb Update: Clark Quinn created this mindmap of the presentation, thanks Clark.

I will add a 'Date Added' to each new resource that is added to make it easier for return visitors to see what has bee added since their last viewing. If you know of any additional resources not shown here, please let me know. I am a huge proponent of backchannel learning. There are many conferences I would love to be able to attend, but my budget can only accomodate one or two each year.
The backchannel is an excellent resource for learning from a conference or event that you are unable to attend in-person. I find collecting collecting and reviewing backchannel resources to be a valuable learning experience for me, even when I am attending a conference in person. Ollections on this blog has shown that others find value in the collections as well.
This post collects the resources shared via the backchannel of the mLearn Conference 2011, being held June 21-23 in San Jose, California. Conference Website Home Page. MLEARNING-WORLD.COM.
