Implementing tablets for learning

Amit Garg, Director and Co-founder, Upside Learning

The tablet market is growing at an exponential rate. Tablets are no longer limited to entertainment purposes, but now are a part of organisational L&D activities across businesses large and small. However there is still a degree of hesitation to make the switch to tablet learning, perhaps brought on by typical myths associated with Mobile Learning. Further, the designing complexity of tablets brought about by their sizes and operating systems, elevates the degree of hesitation. A thorough understanding of tablets as media consumption and learning devices, the importance of getting eLearning on tablets and finally the right way to go about it are some of the important factors that can help organizations in adopting eLearning on tablets and benefiting from them.

Making personalized, collaborative learning a reality 
Joel Hellermark, CEO & Founder, Sana Labs 
Collaboration and personalisation are two trends that dominate contemporary thinking about workplace learning. 
Collaborative learning involves synchronous, interactive live sessions with groups of learners, and is powered by social dynamics and community. 
Personalization focuses on self-paced instruction that responds to the unique needs of every learner, and is powered and scaled by AI. 
Is it possible to combine these two? According to Joel it is. In this session, he will explore what it means to combine these two approaches in entirely new ways—using social dynamics to increase engagement while responding to each learner’s needs to improve learning outcomes. Join us to explore the exciting possibilities of personalized, collaborative learning.
