OutStart Teams with Alcatel-Lucent University to Showcase “Mobile Technology use with Evaluation” at eLearning DevCon 2010


Boston – June 15, 2010 – OutStart’s Technical Director Mike Gregory joins Alcatel-Lucent’s Dave Batchelder, Sales Training Manager at Alcatel-Lucent University, to discuss “Mobile Technology use with Evaluation” at the eLearning DevCon 2010 conference in Salt Lake City June 14-16.  In this presentation attendees will learn about Alcatel-Lucent University's challenge around data collection and analysis of attendee feedback data.  The need to quickly capture and provide near real-time information to senior leadership led the team to a Mobile solution using Outstart’s Hot Lava Mobile.  The case study will cover the requirements for success, implementation strategy and lessons learned plus future evaluation plans that build on initial success.  Attendees of the discussion will also have the opportunity to participate in a live mobile survey on their own devices.

Due to demand for this session, Batchelder and Gregory are conducting this presentation twice. The first session is on Wednesday June 16 at 10:20am and the second is on June 17 at 4:00pm.
