The Accidental (Mobile) Instructional Designer
#mLearnCon 2014
Cammy Bean, VP of Learning Design
Kineo
Once upon a time…
When I grow up, I
want to be…
A singer!
A writer!
A teacher
But instead, I became an
instructional designer.
What’s that,
Mommy?
And I (sort of) grew up.
It was all completely by
accident.
Along the way, I designed
hundreds of eLearning courses.
Until one day, someone said, “Hey, this
needs to run on tablets and phones.”
As I’ve moved
from accidental to
intentional, I like
to eat —and
talk— about
pie!

The well-rounded L&D
professional needs the whole pie.
Those who do it all, look like
this…
…although the reality may
look more like this.

What’s your favorite piece of
pie? What’s your sweet spot?
To continue the food
metaphor…let’s stop thinking
like bartenders…
And start thinking like mixologists.
Said in various forms by lots of people.
When you embed learning in the workflow, when
you put the information people need...
The myth of mobile
“learning”.

No. But I’d rather have it imperfect NOW, rather than perfectly designed 6 weeks later… it’s okay to simply convert your existing content to a format that can display on mobile devices.
