Innovations in Mobile Learning @ Microsoft


This breakout session was presented by Jim Federico, Sr. Director of Platform and Operations at Microsoft. He works with the SMSGReadiness – Sales, Marketing & Services Group. They host TechReady events which are held a couple of times a year. Employees come to Redmond for 6 days and get trained. Get to learn from the people creating the software
He oversees 75 classrooms and 1500 PCs and Servers.  Each employee is giving Roles and depending on the Roles, they develop a roadmap of training for them. Further train them on the area and segment of company they work for.Each training video has many controls, for example Video Speed: you can adjust the speed or slow it down for videos. They develop different widgets for the Vista Sidebar; it has a status as to what courses are yet to be completed. Also gives you your team’s remaining required training. Roleguide.com.

TellMe service: Would text message an employee and let them know there is a new Podcast and they could click on the link and download the Podcast on their mobile device.

This presentation was really not what I expected, but it was interesting to see how Microsoft is organized. I have attached his slides: training-2009_small.
