Thoughts on DevLearn 2015

Over 2,800 eLearning professionals attended DevLearn 2015 Conference and Expo, held in Las Vegas, Nevada, from September 30th to October 2nd. The theme of DevLearn this year was Innovation in the Making, focusing on blended learning courses, hands-on tutorials, xAPI (Tin Can), and Hyperdrive. Dr. Aleckson and Dr. Hicken attended the event and spoke about Corporate MOOCs. After a successful conference, Jon and Andy shared their thoughts about their experience.

Dr. Aleckson began by addressing the general exhibit hall. He said, “It was highly concentrated with course development companies, which is a new phenomenon compared to years ago when it was concentrated on LMS providers. ”

Dr. Hicken then contributed, “Content is king. The technical barrier to create quality courses has been lowered. Quality content has to be made by people who know instructional design, and there is a trend toward investment in high quality design. Companies apparently are shopping for content development assistants rather than buying large software systems.”
