A decade ago, eLearning developers had to use Action Scripts to develop eLearning courses as Adobe Flash was the only tool available for eLearning development. But the scenario changed when learners started consuming content on a variety of mobile devices, each with different screen sizes and resolutions. The Flash player as you must be aware did not support multi-device learning. So, there was a need for eLearning authoring tools that would automatically adjust to the learners’ choice of learning device and deliver a rich, learning experience.
Authoring tools have continued to evolve and today we have responsive tools that can be used to build beautiful, functional responsive eLearning within a short time, and without the need for additional plug-ins.
