Effective Instructional Design Strategies for Mobile Application Training

Monday, February 13 | 3:45PM–4:45PM | Meeting Room 602
Session Type: ELI
Training faculty users where to locate, how to select, and how to utilize various instructional applications for mobile devices has proven difficult given numerous technical limitations of devices. Often, information regarding applications is disseminated via word of mouth, with little or no knowledge or support regarding how to actually use the software. Significant research was invested in locating a solution that enables effective development of training resources that provide real-time, enhanced screen capture of these products. Included are strategies for selecting the applications, best-practices for using the application in instruction, and video-illustration regarding use of the application based on principles of instructional design.

Learning Objectives:
*Identify resources that can be used in mobile application training*Successfully apply principals of instructional design to mobile application training
*Effectively generate video-based tutorials for a variety of mobile devices
*Assess the effectiveness of the training and resources
