Leveraging Mobile Learning For Sales Training

Upside Learning

It’s probably easier to push toothpaste back into a tube than convince sales professionals to attend classroom training.

Create Cell Phone "I search" video papers with Twiddeo

Cell Phones in Learning

I was listening to Ed Talk (01_14) recently and they (John, Jennifer, Dave, and Jeff) spoke about a new resource called Twiddeo , which is just Twitter with video. You can post videos from your computer, but you can also post immediately from your cell phone to your personal account. This allows for many "out-of-school" learning assignments with cell phones and video. The first idea that came to my head was conducting an "I search" video paper. Of course students would need to get verbal permissions to post any person in their video. And the result.so And fun!

However, once again to regard the mobile device as only for use at a distance is to miss its opportunities for use in the classroom, where mobile applications can support learning processes. As well as the tool-like functions that are built in to the device hardware (camera, sound recorder, video recorder,multimedia messaging, etc.), What a refreshing research document!
