mLearning DevCon 2011 Conference Backchannel: Collected Resources #mlearningdevcon

I am a huge proponent of backchannel learning.  There are many conferences I would love to be able to attend, but my budget can only accomodate one or two each year.  The backchannel is an excellent resource for learning from a conference or event that you are unable to attend in-person.

I find collecting collecting and reviewing backchannel resources to be a valuable learning experience for me, even when I am attending a conference in person.  Sharing these collections on this blog has shown that others find value in the collections as well.

This post collects the resources shared via the backchannel of the mLearning DevCon 2011, being held October 5-7 in the New York Metro area.

I will be adding to this list as I continue to review the backchannel transcripts and find resources.  I will tweet updates occasionally as additional links are added.  If you know of a valued resource I should add to the list - or if something is inaccurate - please add it to the comments or tweet me a link to @LnDDave.

If you find these collections of value, I have posts that consolidate the backchannel resources from other conferences.  An archive of all of these posts can be accessed by clicking the link below:

  1. Hi David,

    My name is Chris Marcum and I'm actually the director for mLearning DevCon. One of our presenters sent this page to me and I wanted to let you and your readers know that we have posted presentation files in the session description of each session (for presenters who have chosen to make their files available). You are free to browse the session list here: http://mlearningdevcon.com/program/session-list and download any files you might be interested in.

    Thanks and if anyone has any questions, feel free to contact me at chrismarcum@mlearningdevcon.com.
