How Mobile Devices Can Support/Undermine Online Interaction

Lisa Star, Ed.S. Program Manager, Online Programs, EDUCAUSE 

Steve Gilbert, TLT Group

How Can New Mobile Devices and Other Telecommunications Options Support/Undermine Active Online Participation? (e.g., in FridayLive!)?



We’ll explore together and discuss Consistencies and Anomalies of users’ experience across widely available devices, connectivity, software/apps, etc..  We’ll test and discuss realistic boundaries of interoperability, and their consequences.

Time permitting, we’ll discuss strategies for avoiding or taking advantage of these options to support more effective interaction for teaching/learning.  We’ll emphasize the emerging roles of smart phones.


DURING this unusual FridayLive! session, we invite you to join this experiment via any combination of device and software you like, or observe as usual.  We’ll begin via our regular Adobe Connect platform, which can accommodate many combinations of computers, mobile devices and software.  At 3PM ET, the usual time for “Afterthoughts,” we’ll switch to the Zoom platform so that participants can compare their experience with both of these platforms.

NOTE:  Login instructions for the session will be sent in the Registration Confirmation Email. Please check your Junk folder as sometimes these emails get trapped there. We will also send an additional login reminder a few hours prior to the start of the event.

REALLY IMPORTANT NOTE: You can become a TLT Group Individual Member for one year for $75.  You'll be supporting just the sort of event you just registered for.  Please join us!
