Top 3 things I brought back from DevLearn 2013!
Looking back on my trip to DevLearn 2013, I take back three of the most impressive things I have experienced there!
Guest speaker Jeremy Gutsche, author and founder of Trendhunter.com
My take away from him first and foremost was his enthusiasm for everything he did. And because of that the rest of the audience followed suit. Through that presentation he delivered quite a bit of interesting strategies that could definitely help our Distance Learning program. Below are a few videos that I had captured during the presentation and my comments will follow below them.
My takeaway is about the importance of establishing a cultural connection..."your not speaking to me, your speaking with me!"
My takeaway from this part of the presentation is that we can assume we know what our clients want by conducting surveys of clients that we already have. We have to find a way to go into the public and find out what are their wants and more importantly....what are their interest!
This speaks to the idea of the world is full on innovative concepts and ideas, and most likely it won't be discovered sitting on your desk.
This video shows again how enthusiastic Jeremy is about what he is talking about, and gives great tips on how to make a event, blog, post viral.
I met this company called Hapyak. What Hapyak is a software add on that enables you to add more interactivity to media. The examples I had seen, they were using youtube videos and adding interactivity to them. I have been in email correspondence with the founder and he assured me it will work with internal server videos. More R&D and testing is needed but, very interesting as to the possibilities of how we can take our existing media and further enhance them.
Quite possible the most tasty meal I have had in a loooooooooong time!
