Enterprise Mobile Learning 2011 - Year in Review
DECEMBER 28, 2011
How On Target Were My 2011 Predictions? It’s time once again to take stock of what happened in enterprise mobile learning and see if any of my 2011 predictions hit their intended targets. If 2010 was the year of the pilot, 2011 will be the year of the deployment. Flash will still not be supported on iOS devices in 2011 but this fact will matter far less over time. a.k.a.
Enterprise mLearning Predictions for 2011
JANUARY 2, 2011
It is time once again to ponder the research, extrapolate on recent experience, and attempt to read the tea leaves so we can predict the future of enterprise mobile learning in 2011. If 2010 was the year of the pilot, then 2011 will be the year of the deployment. Sure, companies may still provided workers with an old BlackBerry (on a 2-year contract), but increasingly more people will opt to use their own iPhones/iPads or Android handsets or tablets once their devices can be secured and supported within their organizations. 3. mLearning Engagements Expand.

FEBRUARY 23, 2011
There was a lot of excitement with new announcements such as LG’s 3D phone, Sony’s Experia Play, HTC ChaCha and Salsa devices with integrated Facebook, new Samsung devices and lots of tablets from companies such as HTC with their Flyer, Samsung which includes a pen, Motorola’s Xoom and RIM’s PlayBook, all trying to distinguish themselves from the absent iPad.

mLearning Tech A’plenty Released at CES 2011
JANUARY 7, 2011
As security and control issues for enterprise-grade mlearning solutions are mitigated to infosec’s satisfaction, BYOD policies can actually save organization tremendous amounts of money every year. To me, the more significant advances introduced at CES 2011 were the formal introductions from the leading carriers of their much anticipated “4G”, high-speed networks. This year’s event is as big as ever with 100K+ attendees roaming through 2,700 vendor booths across multiple sites. Better Devices. Way Faster Networks.

Enterprise mLearning Predictions for 2012
DECEMBER 30, 2011
The many advantages of mobile web apps – like cross platform OS support for iOS, Android and others – will still be mitigated in key areas like security, off-line storage, sync updates, access to device features like cameras (although this is improving in the spec) plus critical infosec concerns like SSO support when disconnected and remote wipe capabilities that just don’t work in mobile web apps yet. suspect the annual Consumer Electronics Show (“CES”) event in Las Vegas next week will have far fewer tech OEMs wading into the tablet pool as compared with January 2011.

What the Army is Doing in Mobile Learning
mLearning is Good
APRIL 14, 2011
In the long run, it looks like the Army is even going to push commercial mobile devices (iOS, Android, Windows Phone 7 devices) into combat situations as long as they can figure out the security. Security is a very hard problem to solve, but it’s being worked on by several big and small industry players at the moment and it’s on everyone’s mind. It sounds like the Army and other agencies are grappling with how much security is enough and is there such thing as too much? think it’s even more important when that workforce is widely dispersed.

Cuts to Social Security? AARP weighs in
JULY 8, 2011
Late Wednesday, the Washington Post broke the news that President Obama was willing to offer up cuts to Social Security as part of the negotiations around reducing the country’s debt. They responded almost immediately by blasting out a message to their full list that read: AARP: White House considering cuts to Social Security?! This stance marks a big shift from the President’s earlier stance on the program and, to put it lightly, did not go over well with much of his base – especially those who would be the most directly affected by the cuts. Enter AARP.
