Today ELC interviews a mLearning thought leader RJ Jacquez. We first met RJ when he was an Adobe evangelist and are thrilled to get his thoughts on the rapidly changing mLearning arena. If you'd like more information from RJ, please go to his blog at http://rjacquez.com
ELC: RJ, for our readers, can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
RJ Jacquez: Sure. I spent the last 12 years of my career working as an Evangelist for various companies, including eHelp, the original makers of RoboDemo, which later became Captivate. I also worked for Macromedia and more recently for Adobe Systems, for the last 6 years
Since leaving Adobe last year, I have been focusing entirely on Mobile Learning (mLearning). I call myself an mLearning Analyst, Podcaster, Blogger and Consultant, focusing on all-things mLearning.

The Teaching Apps Project (TAP) is an international competition event to help facilitate the creation, development, and sharing of teaching apps for mobile devices. The purpose of TAP is to create an open source library of lesson plans and resources for mobile teaching.
Interested individuals or multicultural teams submit “teaching app profiles” for professional review during the open submission period called a Competition Cycle. There are competition cycles every ninety days beginning January 1, 2013.
Each teaching app profile is judged and awarded points based on its applicability to mobile teaching. The profile receiving the most points during the cycle receives a first place award for the school of the participant. Additional awards for individual participants are also available.
For participation guidelines, go to http://mobileteaching.org/ and follow the link in Article Resource Section 7.
