Here is a little interactive resume I put together to give people an idea of my background and the type of services I offer. It’s a short little e-learning style presentation with narration that I did here in my studio. This particular interactive piece was done in captivate. I hope you find it valuable or at least fun. Just click on the picture below to check it out. Enjoy!
Because this is a Captivate course that has been exported as HTML 5 there may be some browser incompatibility. I also created a version where I removed the buttons and exported the course as an MP4. This is really a great way to create movies without having a video production skill-set. I uploaded the video to YouTube and then included the embedded version below.
I just found this video on BYOD for K-12 by Cisco. This supports my sons post earlier today. No I did not nudge him to write that blog. It surprised me when his post popped up on my Google+ timeline
When he got home I asked him about it. He said he had been thinking about it for awhile and just wrote the blog. BTW he also told me he wrote and published it from his smartphone in his Advisory class. Nice!
Katy ISD Transforms Education with Mobile Learning
I am looking forward to speaking at this Online Forum on December 6th & 7th hosted by the eLearning Guild. It is a topic that I really enjoy talking about and that is technology based learning. In this case its mobile technology. Mobile technology offers new ways to reach our learners. I have been involved in many conversations with thought leaders on subject of how mobile is transforming how we reach the learner. Mobile opens up possibilities that we have never had before. It is up to us to decide how we are going to embrace these opportunities and leverage them to create better learning.
Geoff Stead and I hanging with the Qualcomm gang. Great night we took the limo to several tech companies and snapped photos in front of them. I think most of them would agree the highlight was riding around on the Google bikes.
Here is my interview with Geoff Stead at mLearnCon 2012
I have been researching at vertical or specialty markets for mobile learning. One area that has really peeked my interest is the medical field. I have noticed that the doctors I have visited lately have all had laptops or desktops computers in their exam rooms. On a recent visit to a specialist the doctor interviewed me entering information into his laptop. After he was finished he popped in a VHS video in a VCR connected to a tiny little TV and left me to watch it. I could not help thinking about the opportunity here. He could have combined the technologies and had both on one ipad. The video could also have had interactive content allowing me to dig deeper if I had any questions. I can think of many potential applications that would take advantage of the mobile platform. I this case the patient could have learned the baseline information about their diagnosis. What if they wanted to learn more? That same content could be online and the patient could have checked a box or entered an email address so more information could be made available to them after they get home. Here are some links to additional research I found on the web.
