Grab your phone, laptop or iPad because on April 27, 2011, IOC is going mobile! The 9th annual conference, Going Mobile in Higher Ed, will focus exclusively on mobile technologies in higher education. That might include smartphones, tablets, e-books, and other devices or mobile tools students use to learn and you may use to teach.
Following an opening address by Ellen Wagner from WCET/WICHE, each hour of the day will focus on specific applications of mobile technologies such as
- Assessment techniques and strategies
- Fieldwork and in-class work with content
- Communication tools
- Authoring tips and accessibility issues
- Apps to keep everyone happy!
The IOC (formerly known as the Illinois Online Conference) was created nine years ago to bring together a community of education and training professionals at all levels — from classroom instructors, to instructional designers and technology support staff, media specialists, librarians, academic administrators, and professional development trainers. This year’s program promises to deliver yet again with a focus on Going Mobile in Higher Ed and speakers sure to have an immediate impact on the work you do every day.
