Tata Interactive Systems to Host Knowledge Sharing Session on Mobile Learning
MUMBAI, India, April 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
Tata Interactive Systems is a Pioneer and Global Leader in e-learning and Simulations.
The Presentations are a Part of ‘The Performance Improvement Conference’, Toronto, Canada.
John Gibbs, instructional design manager at Tata Interactive Systems (TIS), will be
hosting two round-table presentations on mobile learning at The Performance Improvement
Conference 2012 in Toronto, Canada, on April 22nd and 23rd.
The session on 22nd of April titled ‘Decision Scenarios for Mobile Support and
Instruction’ will help organizations choose mobile learning solutions based on their
current infrastructure and performance improvement needs.
Mobile technologies, being popular but volatile, often do not have support and
instructional solutions created in systematic ways. However, it is still possible to
design well-reasoned solutions based on where the organization is today.
At the session, John Gibbs will examine one-minute support and learning scenarios
based on need, legacy investments, and even impulse decisions in terms of appropriate
technologies for the back end, the handheld devices themselves, and the supporting
The session on 23rd of April titled ‘Adding Mobile Nuggets to the Main Course’ will
address the strategic role that short learning nuggets can play in an overall learning and
performance support strategy.
Straddling the boundary between tool-based and instructional interventions, nuggets
can play a key role in performance improvement. Nuggets have made targeted and ad-hoc
delivery via mobile and traditional technology platforms possible.
Gibbs will explore need drivers for nuggets, push vs. pull delivery, required vs.
discretionary and formal vs. informal use, content selection and organization schemas, and
media formats. The discussion will help develop rationale to justify investing in nuggets
as a strategic tool rather than an afterthought.
The Performance Improvement Conference is sponsored by the International Society for
Performance Improvement (ISPI). Tata Interactive Systems’ speaker, John Gibbs, is the
president of the Atlanta chapter of ISPI.
Founded in 1962, ISPI is the leading international association dedicated to improving
workplace productivity and performance. ISPI represents performance improvement
professionals throughout the United States, Canada, and 40 other countries.
