  • Introductions
  • First Impressions of the New iPad as compared to the first and second generation iPads
  • iCloud and the importance of having a singular computing experience for eLearning and mLearning
  • Challenges ahead for mobile learning with tracking mobile through an LMS
  • Adobe Flash and Mobile devices

Please let me us know what you think of our discussions and bear with us, as we get more comfortable with the art of Podcasting.
