Vancouver-based QuickMobile has released the official mobile app for the meeting and event industry’s first Mobile App Certificate Program. Developed in partnership with Meeting Change, etouches and Sonic Foundry, the app is available for download from the iTunes and Google Play stores.
The Mobile App Certificate Program, which was announced in January, offers a foundation on mobile event technology and how it can be used to build and measure success at conferences and events. The self-directed mobile learning (m-learning) offers event professions the opportunity to earn up to 10 continuing education units (CEs) towards Certified Meeting Professional (CMP and CMP-HC) accreditation and recertification requirements.
“Mobile event apps continue to grow in popularity and are proving to have a dramatic impact on the success of meetings and events around the world,” said Craig Brennan, CEO of QuickMobile. “We initiated this certificate program to turn meeting professionals into mobile event app champions who can lead their organizations and clients in planning, building, managing and deploying apps at all their events. Officially launching this program on the day for recognizing the impact of meetings on North American businesses, communities and economies is perfect timing. We appreciate the efforts of our partners Meeting Change, etouches and Sonic Foundry for making this app a reality.”
The certificate program costs $229 USD, which is due upon registration. The Convention Industry Council (CIC) will grant CE credits upon completion of the program, which is comprised of 30 different learning modules covering topics such as the history and future of mobile apps; mobile app terminology; best practices for design, delivery and deployment; and the role of data and analytics. QuickMobile’s Tahira Endean, CMP, and Meeting Change’s Mariela McIlwraith, CMP, CMM, MBA, created the course content.
All course modules are delivered by video through an integration with Sonic Foundry’s award-winning Mediasite video streaming technology. etouches is partnering with QuickMobile to provide the registration website for the certificate program.
