Designing a Performance Support Solution on a Shoestring Presentation @ Performance Support | mLearnCon15

You need a performance support solution, but getting approval to implement a larger, more costly solution takes time—if you have the budget at all. But maybe you don’t need the larger, more costly system. Maybe you can start your performance support journey using tools you already have available.

In this session you will explore how using open-source-based products can help you launch and support your audience without breaking the bank. You will learn from demonstrations on how to use these tools to prototype and test a concept to develop the best workflow and meet your audience’s needs. You will receive a breakdown of open source and free technologies that can be used to build a solution with a minimal or zero budget. You will leave this session understanding what’s needed, and how to plan, demonstrate, and launch working versions of several key performance support tools that you can model and implement within your organization.

E3: Project Natal – First Product that utilizes the technology: Meet Milo

Milo is a new product by Lionhead Studios, using the Natal technology, he can recognize you and your emotions. Notice about 3 minutes in where Clare draws on a paper and waves it in front of the TV and Milo understands what’s on the paper. Just imagine if we get browser and flash support how we can utilize this for learning! If you have not watched the Project Natal video click here: E3: Microsoft Project Natal – Look’s Amazing. Controller free interaction, voice control, 3d imaging and sensing emotions.
