Most smart phone users check their phones a whopping 150 times a day, and tablet shipments surpassed desktop PCs and notebooks in fourth quarter 2012, according to The Meeker report. Clearly, mobile devices have become an integral part of people’s lives—and many of them now want the option of getting their workplace training on these mobile devices. But it’s not as easy as it sounds.

Join us  for this complimentary Webinar, sponsored by Aptara, and discover the key challenges organizations need to understand and address before taking their content mobile. In this Webinar, guest speakers Mike Stacy, executive vice president of Mobile Solutions, and Nailesh Sampat, vice president of Design Solutions, Aptara, will explore four of the most common issues confronted by learning organizations considering mobile deployment:
  • BYOD (bring your own device) from a content developer’s perspective. If allowing employees to be trained on their own personal devices, what conversation do you need to have with your IT department?
  • How to make legacy content mobile-friendly and the difference between content conversion and content redevelopment
  • Filling the gap between ILT and WBT. How best to take flat content - such as training manuals – mobile and make them engaging
  • Preparing new content to support the range of potential devices
