Revisiting the Fundamentals of Flash to HTML5 Conversion of eLearning [Video]
This blog examines the relationship between HTML5, eLearning, and the factors that organizations should consider before adopting HTML5. We will also see why HTML5 is seen as Flash's successor, the purpose of Flash to HTML5 conversion, and how to go about it.
Why do we need Flash to HTML5 conversion for eLearning? As HTML5 has become the industry standard in the web and eLearning domains, many organizations are looking to roll out online courses on mobile devices – for extended reach and to meet learner preferences. Flash is not a feasible solution for mobile learning since many mobile devices and browsers do not support it. Modern learners want to access online training programs on their mobile devices, which is why HTML5 is gaining popularity.
HTML5 is open source, doesn’t need plugins, and learners can access courses from any device with a compatible browser over any internet connection. HTML5 also allows the development of responsive eLearning courses that play on a variety of devices.
Aside from the formal training programs learners are expected to complete, there are additional circumstances in which learners seek online learning, including:
- A desire to learn (they genuinely want to learn, but at their own pace).
- On-demand learning (when they are looking for performance support or just-in-time training).
When learners in these settings have access to eLearning courses, it instantly contributes to the development of a learning culture, improves performance and thereby training ROI.
