What Our Participants Are Saying
Mary Gray

"I would recommend this program because it gives you the basis of what you need to implement mobile learning successfully. Not just build a fancy app, but to do a needs analysis to decide on the best solution for your needs. I trust that ATD has the people and the resources to help me with my development."

Erin Richardson

"This program was excellent. It took the common sense mobile learning ideals we probably all know intuitively as learning professionals and gave us real-world, practical ideas about how to put those ideals into practice."

Jan Gillies

"I found ATD's Mobile Learning Certificate program enormously valuable! The hands-on activities gave me a taste for the various deliverables in mobile as well as a notebook full of better practices and design considerations that are immediately applicable to projects at work."
