Why Convert Flash to HTML5?
You can reconfigure lengthy courses as a curriculum of microlearning nuggets, convert assessments to micro quizzes or games, add a dash of personalization by asking for each learner’s name and addressing them using it through the rest of the course. Exciting possibilities, right!
When you do so, you make your courses readily accessible to today’s learners on their preferred devices. You also cater to the millennials’ learning preferences of:
- Short online learning bytes
- Autonomy and self-paced learning
- Collaboration and social interaction
You can also offer them a blend of online and offline learning experiences by covering the theoretical concepts via eLearning or microlearning and move skill development to the (virtual) classroom.
Later on, microlearning assets can be used – to reinforce learning, provide practice opportunities, test recall, and assign remedial/follow up measures – in the form of simulations, scenarios, quizzes, or learning games. The content for this can again come from your legacy courses!
