#mlearncon Nutritious Breakfast

Starting my day off right :)

To answer Rovy Brannon's question to me last night - no, I am not going to be working nearly as hard at this conference.  Going into this one with a lot more focus and specific things I need to get out of it vs. Innovations in eLearning.

Had a great dinner and conversation with Justin Mass - now at Adobe.  He's the one who got me my current job.  I also wound up replacing him.  Still bummed we never got a chance to work together.

During our conversation last night - I caught him up on the changes to the staff training landscape at his old place of employment.  It struck me, as we talked, that last year saw a tipping point in the acceptance and desirability of eLearning.  That tipping point was driven by real-estate.

Get rid of the real estate for classrooms (and cubicles) - and suddenly eLearning looks a heck of a lot more desireable.

Management support takes some really funny forms.
In one workshop day - I have heard more noise about Articulate Storyline than I've ever heard about any other development tool.  I had 3 people show me eLearning they have developed using the tool and raving about it.  The conference hasn't even started yet.

Guess I know one of the things I'm investigating this week....
The extra scarf I brought - epic idea.

The conference areas of this hotel are danged cold.
So a few goals for today
- More data collection on the state of the mobile space

- Investigate the expo

- Have a lengthy conversation about Tin Can API with Aaron Silver.  If only so I can maybe wrap my head around it better.

I will admit to still feeling just a bit stupid right now in regards to the eLearning space and what I need to do within it.  Think I'll go with this feeling for now.

totally support your Tin Can API goal, so long as you then explain it to the rest of us.
