The Accidental (Mobile) Instructional Designer #mlearncon

Learning Visions

This week, it''s been mLearnCon in sunny San Diego! A really great conference with an engaged community of practitioners actively solving problems and seeking out ideas and insights. I led a session on Thursday, riffing a bit off my new book. So many of us working in this field found ourselves here seemingly by accident. So we''ve been designing and developing eLearning all these years, and now a new twist has been added to our plates--making it mobile.

I replied : I do a fair amount of lurking (ie “legitimate peripheral participation&# ). I also retweeted this message by Colby Fordham : We all like sharers, but there is a value in lurking.
