Here’s how Adobe Captivate 6 could have been a Game-Changer for mLearning
JUNE 21, 2012
My point is that in order for Captivate 6 to have been a game-changer in mLearning, the team in India could have just looked at what other Adobe teams were doing and copy their ideas right into Captivate 6. But I still went ahead and did it and even today after having further tested the new features, I stand by everything I wrote. That’s it. True mLearning a la Dreamweaver CS6.

Enterprise mLearning Predictions for 2011
JANUARY 2, 2011
After almost 18 months, RIM’s AppWorld site has only grown to around 15K “apps” for BlackBerry wireless handhelds and none of these current apps work on the upcoming PlayBook tablet meaning a whole new series of apps must be written – the classic “chicken & egg” problem. 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. mLearning Engagements Expand.

Cloud Computing and mobility Part 2.
FEBRUARY 18, 2008
In part one we looked at how computing may just become a service utility in the same sense as electricity or water, and be accessible anywhere via wireless technologies. Likewise the smaller (and yet to prove itself) Sony Mylo resembles a PSP, but is built for messaging and VOIP rather than gaming. Not accessible on a desktop PC you can’t lug anywhere. And available to devices that don’t have the processing power of decent laptops. But is this what we see happening around us? So will these trends impact mobile learning? That seems like a winner. learing+2.0
