For a long time, we have been reading about the certain and inescapable death of Adobe Flash. There has been a lot of speculation on the net – ‘Is Flash dying?’, ‘Is Flash dead?’, ‘Is Flash dead yet?’, ‘Adobe Flash is dead?!?!?!?’, – but now we have it straight from the horse’s mouth. Adobe will euthanize Flash, and by 2020 (that’s just around the corner, and closer than we think), there will be no sign of Flash. In this blog, we will look at all the reasons to convert Flash courses to HTML5.
In today’s smartphone-savvy world, no one is a stranger to mobile apps. They are software applications specifically developed to work on mobile phones. Apps, due to their powerful functionalities and ease of use, have made inroads in every aspect of our lives. From shopping, to hailing a cab, to finding a restaurant and even to buying or selling automobiles, there is nothing that mobile apps haven’t revolutionized.
I’ve often come across people who believe learning is not possible on mobile devices with their small screen size and the distractions involved. However, that’s not true. Many such misconceptions are prevalent in training and development communities regarding mobile learning.
Training is an investment, not only in employee skill-building but also in the growth of the business. Do you know if learners in your organization are finding the online training programs engaging or is your training budget going down the drain? Corporate learners of today need quick access to information and have a dwindling attention span. With calls, emails, and messages clamoring for attention, learners are easily distracted.
The eLearning industry relies heavily on ‘psychology’ to create new and better technologically-enabled learning strategies that will effectively meet a company’s objectives and goals, through proper training and knowledge transfer. One of these solutions is microlearning. There are several benefits associated with microlearning in corporate training – especially with reinforcement training; however, without a basic understanding of how the brain absorbs information, it’s hard to understand why and how these short (as short as a minute to a few minutes more) slavers, impact learning.
The way people access information has changed. From newspapers and television, they shifted to computers and laptops. Now everything in accessed on mobile devices, and online learning is no different. Employees don’t like to be distracted from their busy schedules. So organizations are converting their legacy courses to HTML5, so that they can be accessed on any mobile device. This ensures employees are not distracted from their regular work schedules and can access training at their convenient time, place, and device.

As the learning preferences of employees change, organizations have to look for more innovative and out-of-box solutions to keep them invested in the digital learning program. In these fast-times, microlearning has emerged as a leading technique to strike a balance between effective learning and user engagement. But, the success of microlearning depends on the kind of content you choose to convey through them.
The evolution of technology has caused a paradigm shift in training. Organizations are making their content responsive, allowing learners to access learning anywhere, anytime irrespective of the device used.
