Jeff Whitney, OutStart Vice President of Marketing

“Mlearning has just scratched the surface in commercial, government, and educational settings, but already there are an endless range of fast, high-payback use cases.  With the prevalence of mobile devices, an enormous opportunity exists to use these devices to share information and knowledge in new ways.  

Attendees of the Future of Mobile Learning panel will hear a far ranging discussion that examines current mobile technology use and how that usage will grow and evolve in the future.  Our goal is for audience members to come away from the discussion thinking about they can leverage the ubiquity, functionality and unique characteristics of mobile devices to impact the world and those around them in exciting and bold new ways.”
