DevLearn 2008 – Day 3 Recap

Category: eLearning Published on 14 Nov, 2008 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Today was the final day of DevLearn, and technically, it was only a half-day. I presented Session 702: Virtually Anywhere: A Case Study of Mobile Learning at Qualcomm, along with Barbara Ludwig. (The slides are below; I’ll try to get the handouts posted soon.)

Unfortunately, I missed the keynote by John Medina, author of Brain Rules. I talked with several people who raved about it, so I may have to pick up a copy of John’s book.

Because I wasn’t able to learn much new info today (I was a bit preoccupied with my presentation and getting to the airport on time), I will defer to two bloggers who did manage to post today. Surf on over to read Clark Quinn’s blog and Brian Dusablon’s blog for updates on Day 3 of DevLearn. And again, don’t forget the other DevLearn bloggers mentioned in this list.

While I liked all of the sessions I attended, I have to say that I enjoyed the people at DevLearn more than anything else. This was an incredible event for networking. I can’t even begin to list off all the people I met (my apologies), but please know that I enjoyed meeting each and every one of you!

Also, I can’t say "thank you" enough to Brent Schlenker and the rest of the eLearning Guild staff for putting on such a great conference. Your hard work definitely paid off!

    Hi BJ! You are very welcome. The eLearning Guild staff really are the stars that make our events happen. Without them I’m lost… completely lost. I highly recommend both Brain Rules and The Back of the Napkin. And that’s not just because they were the keynoters. The books really are applicable to what we do in eLearning.
    Using Slideshare is a GREAT idea! Let’s see if we can get others to do the same.
    And I can’t thank you enough for your participation. I wasn’t able to blog or twitter or flickr as much as I would have liked. And so your work and the work of others REALLY helped make DevLearn come alive. So my thanks to you and all the others who not only attended but PARTICPATED at DevLearn08.
    Here’s to looking forward to next year…already! 😉
