    Got Mobile? Our corporate learners are on the go constantly, which means we need to make training opportunities accessible from a wide range of locations. Fortunately, learning technology enables us to reach employees no matter where they work or travel.

    Join Adobe Senior Learning Evangelist Katrina Marie Baker to explore 5 ways a Learning Management System (LMS) can enable mobile learning. We will discuss how to:

    • Make just in time training content available to on-site and remote employees
    • Use QR codes to efficiently track classroom and on the floor/on the job learning
    • Enable travelers and sales representatives to access resources when wifi isn’t available
    • Format content so it displays responsively on mobile devices (links to supplemental resources will be provided)
    • Incorporate mobile learning into an employee’s overall blended learning experience

    Facilitated by:

    Alternatives to the Creative Cloud

    While the cost associated with Adobe's Creative Cloud is well worth it for graphic and marketing professionals, they are a bit expensive for those of us who use the products sparingly within our training content.  For those of you who want to modify the rare vector image or edit the occasional photo, fear not!  There are some tools that can support both our needs and our budget.  We'll share them here.

    Regardless of your job title, if you’re working in the training industry, particularly in a production capacity, you need an online portfolio. Why do you need a portfolio? Because it will work for you! Portfolios allow you to focus on the things you really enjoy doing, while potentially funneling prospective clients to your inbox.

    Building your eLearning portfolio doesn’t need to be an overwhelming task. This session will equip you for the portfolio-building journey, and you’ll learn insider information about what works well, what doesn’t work at all, and lessons learned in building an eLearning portfolio. You will also have the opportunity to address your most pressing concerns.

    In this session you’ll learn:

    • About the importance of having a portfolio
    • About common challenges in building an eLearning portfolio and how to overcome them
    • How to build out and host your portfolio
    • How to promote your portfolio

    Audience:

    Novice to advanced designers and developers.
