Is HTML5 Ready for eLearning Development?

Upside Learning

Last week, while justifying Apple’s refusal to allow Flash player on iPhone/iPad, Steve Jobs wrote– “ New open standards created in the mobile era, such as HTML5, will win on mobile devices (and PCs too) ”. A few days before the launch of iPad Apple had released a list of ‘iPad ready’ websites having support for HTML5. Yes, HTML5 is a major revision over its predecessor HTML4. More specifically- Is it ready to compete with Flash for eLearning Development?

Mobile Learning Moves the Evolution of Authoring Tools

Association eLearning

To combat “boring” eLearning experiences, programs like Adobe Flash and Director came on the scene with an animated bang (anyone else remember the bird crash vector animation from the early Flash demos?) eLearning created with these tools became engaging again, and though these applications did not require the kind of command-line coding expertise that TenCORE did, Actionscript (for Flash ) and Lingo (for Director ) could not be described as “simple” to use.

Converting ELearning To Tablet Learning: Cost-effective Solutions

Flash animations can be published as videos and imported in the HTML/Lectora framework. This method allows the previously developed Flash animations to be reutilized, leading to sizeable cost-savings. Another option could be to use the Flash CS6 Toolkit for CreateJS , which allows output to be created in Flash and published for HTML. This tool has a very good feature (HTML5 tracker) for highlighting activities that are not supported on tablets.

E-learning Tools: A Developer’s Review of Adobe Captivate 7

It cannot compete with Adobe Flash or other platforms based on programming languages. Animations are treated similarly — while the support for basic animation does exist, developers will not be able to create complex animations (for example, syncing illustrated avatars to audio). Captivate 7 is a rapid development tool, so it’s never going to compare to something like ActionScript® when it comes to custom programming.

3, Interactions/Animations/Games I don’t want to get into the Flash debate here but let’s face it; the.swf output file is here to stay for a long time. You can sit around and wait for who wins the HTML5 argument or you can learn Flash. Other than HTML, at a minimum I recommend learning XML, basic JavaScript (Web) and basic ActionScript (Flash). Audio/Video Not all eLearning has Audio and/or Video, but you may end up on a project one day that requires it.
