Mobile − Advances That Support Human Performance
Mobile devices are available anytime and anywhere. Mobile functionality and mobile geolocation are changing the way learning occurs. More than ever before current, relevant information, including training, manuals, and job aids are available at to the performer who is away from the office. More than ever before, we can collect information about use of assets and performance to describe the impacts at the point of performance. Should this increased access shape the way we provide training and support? What is needed to account for access when and where the person performs? This session will cover developments in mobile, geolocation, mobile learning, and human factors that impact decisions human performance technologists make about the use of mobile.
