ASTD Twin Cities Conference Wrap-up

I had a busy schedule at this year’s ASTD Twin Cities Regional Conference in Saint Paul.  Three presentations and lots of networking at our exhibitor booth. It was a great show.  Thanks to everyone who attended my sessions and stopped by to chat!  I met a lot of great folks and had some really good discussions.

Below is a brief summary of each of my presentations and any slides or resources associated with them.  If you have any feedback, leave a comment below.  If you’re interested in any of our services don’t hesitate to drop us a line!  Otherwise, we’ll see you next year!

Fast Track to Adobe Captivate 6

I opened the conference on Tuesday morning with a pre-conference session on Adobe Captivate 6.  It was an intense four hours of eLearning goodness.  I had a great group of people.  Lots of good questions and discussions.  Here are the slides



You can download a free trial version of Adobe Captivate 6 here.  There’s lots of good resources on the Adobe Captivate Blog and the Adobe eLearning YouTube page too.


Strategies for Mobile eLearning

My next presentation was on Wednesday during the main conference. I discussed some strategies for developing mobile eLearning.  I focused more on determining mLearning needs and the different ways to address those needs.  Toward the end, I demonstrated some of the different ways to create mLearning with tools like Adobe Captivate, Adobe Presenter, and Articulate Storyline. Here are the slides from the presentation:



During the presentation, I demonstrated PhoneGap Build and how it can be used to create native applications. I also briefly discussed HTML5 Offline Applications, although that can get a little technical and requires some coding.


Synchronous Training and Web Conferencing on Mobile Devices

My final presentation was a 20 minute vendor demonstration covering how to deliver virtual training and web conferencing on mobile devices with Adobe Connect.  Adobe Connect has some amazing features and the best part is these feature extend to mobile devices.  I showed the crowd how I can be attending the same virtual training from a laptop, tablet, or phone.  The Adobe Connect mobile app supports iOS, Android, and the Blackberry Tablet OS.  If you’d like to see how Adobe Connect can enables amazingly interactive virtual training and web conferencing sessions, drop us a line.  We’d love to give you a demonstration!
