#mHealth opportunities and planning using #mLearning

mHealth is a rapidly growing market. The interesting thing is that it actually reaches both patients and practitioners around the globe with all the people around the world using cell phones. Because of the wide variety of options that are out there, I wrote an article for always inspirational Learning Solutions magazine which is the eLearning Guild publication. The mHealth article is entitled Mobile Learning Support for Global Health.

In the article I look at the requirements to get an mHealth project started, what it takes to plan a health related project (e.g. secure data handling) and get it implemented (strategic plan, mobile content mix,...) and I look at opportunities for mHealth applications (e.g. education awareness, early warning systems for epidemic outbreaks, personal well-being...)°

With the world getting smaller by the day, mHealth is a sound and human region of eLearning to get into. And for all of us who have experience in mobile instructional design... this is a great area to explore or expand. There are also links to some free articles and papers related to mHealth for additional inspiration.  

And if you are in the neighborhood of San Jose, California, there is a wonderful mobile learning conference planned in 18 - 19 June, the mLearnCon organized by the eLearning Guild. I have been there in the past and it is a real treat, because in just 2 days you will get immersed in all things mLearning and ready to take control of a new mLearning project.

    MPEG-1 files can be a problem if they're muxed, which it probably is. Currently Apple offers three products which are Mac - Book Pro, Mac - Book Air and the standard Mac - Book.
