I’m super excited about this webinar, hosted by Xyleme, next week. You can read more ab0ut their iPad mobile learning platform here:

iPad: a Game Changer for Blended Learning – featuring Elliott Masie
The iPad has created a transitional moment for Learning & Development. With this game-changing device, users demand full control over how they view, navigate and interact with training content. Today, training organizations grapple both with how to get their content onto the iPad and how to transform that content into an engaging and interactive experience for learners.

On Wednesday, June 1, join us for a free webinar exploring not only WHY training organizations need to offer their training on the iPad, but also HOW to effectively do it.

This unique event kicks off with the WHY: a 20-minute interactive interview with industry luminary Elliott Masie, chair of the Learning Consortium and host of Learning 2011, where he’ll share valuable insights on how the iPad is transforming learning within organizations.

We’ll follow this up with the HOW: the industry premier of Pastiche™ by Xyleme. Here you’ll get the first detailed look at how to leverage your existing textbook, eLearning, assessment and performance support materials to rapidly create and deploy full blended learning iPad applications.

If you’re serious about using the iPad to deliver training, this is a can’t miss!
