Float Mobile Learning, the leader in developing custom mobile learning applications and mobile learning strategy, introduced new features for Tappestry today at DevLearn. These features will allow business professionals to capture and share learning and productivity data in a controlled and secure environment.
“Tappestry for Organizations is tailor-made for professionals who are on the go,” said Chad Udell, Float’s managing director. “As more people use their mobile devices to find information or solve problems, employees can store or retrieve relevant material when it’s needed, all within a secure, authenticated environment.”
Similarly, Tappestry for Events lets event organizers create private areas where their attendees can categorize the information they learn throughout the various sessions.
“By being able to see what others at the event post to Tappestry throughout the sessions or the vendor exhibition, you’ll be able to establish relationships with people
during and after the event,” Udell said. “Not only will you be able to connect with and learn from someone, but someone else may view you as a thought leader.”
Tappestry is built on the Tin Can API, part of the next generation of SCORM. As an early adopter and specification contributor, Float leverages the full potential of Tin Can so that people can more easily share what they’ve learned in a variety of contexts.
“Because it’s built on the latest learning technology, Tappestry offers a unique user experience and opens the door to long-term record-keeping, storage, and retrieval that typical enterprise social platforms just can’t offer,” Udell said.
Both Tappestry for Organizations and Tappestry for Events feature a full dashboard for managers and event organizers to track critical metrics and data about informal and social learning.
