Moving Beyond "I've Got a Great Idea for an App"

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Mobile devices provide powerful ways to reach extension audiences in innovative ways for high impact. While many of us (and our content experts) have several *ideas* for what would make a good app, we are all still learning how to identify what kind of app would be best for which audiences, and discovering what mobile content is unused. Based on their work in creating mobile apps for Extension,  Barbara Chamberlin will share their experiences in app distribution (including distribution and use numbers), approach for determining what kinds of apps make sense for our programs. Participants will be better able to estimate costs for development, anticipate barriers for development and implementation, and guide their institutions in developing a mobile strategy. Other developers are encouraged to join in the conversation, sharing what they have learned in preparing apps for the Apple, Google and Amazon mobile spaces.
