The key quotes
“Your smartphone is one of the most personal items in existence.”
— Christian Clerici
“Social media does not substitute anything, it complements everything!”
“Don’t communicate like a book; read like a letter.”
When users install apps, they decide whether or not they are going to keep them within eight seconds. For this reason, apps need to be appealing and self-explanatory from the outset. When it comes to mobile learning, learning experience plays an important role alongside the user and customer experience.
This is about turning satisfied customers into enthusiastic ambassadors. To do so, Isabell Cholette used her ‘APPsolutly Customer Experience’ presentation to promote the use of emotions, compassion, needs, and fantasy over Excel spreadsheets.
Learning experience refers to every interaction that takes place when it comes to learning. The question is: What learning experiences has the user already had? School work? Presentations? Practical exercises? In the past, it was possible to track these traditional experiences with e-learning. Using the new TIN CAN API SCORM version, it is now possible to ensure that every user experience that increases competency or potential contributes to the overall learning experience. e-learning in particular involves knowing and addressing the target group.
In e-learning, the level of familiarity with the advantages of the digital world will be expanded – on all terminal devices. This way, people who have not grown up with new media can learn successfully and satisfactorily without any obstacles.
