Why and How to Make Your Courses Compatible to HTML5?

As an eLearning Project Manager, I generally hear many of our clients saying “HTML5 compatible, eLearning courses.” On hearing this two questions pop-up in mind i.e

  1. Why HTML5 compliant?
  2. How can we do that?

In this blog, I would like to address the above questions.

Why HTML5 compliant?

As per Cisco’s BYOD Insights report in 2013, every 9 out of 10 Americans use smartphones for their work. The usage of smartphones and tablets in our lives is increasing by the day.

So organizations want to develop their eLearning courses that are compatible with Smartphones or tablets or iPads. So how is HTML5 related to it . Let us see.

  • HTML5 is not only mobile compatible, but also it supports all the latest versions of browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari. It means we can develop a single eLearning course that can be accessed not only by PCs but also by mobile devices.
  • Using HTML5, we can develop Mobile APPs easily using which courses can be accessed either offline or online.
  • HTML5 supports video and audio elements without the need to install plug-ins.
  • With HTML5, you can develop interactive mobile friendly games to make your eLearning courses engaging . Canvas tag, helps you create simple 2D drawings using javascript. Simple graphics can be quickly integrated into the course without the need for external application.

How can we do that?

Using the rapid eLearning tools such as Articulate Storyline, Adobe Captivate 7, iSpring Presenter, Lectora Inspire, Articulate Studio ’13, Adobe presenter 9 etc. you can develop/ publish the courses to HTML5. To know more on this, please click here.
