Multimedia Wars: Flash or HTML5

G-Cube

HTML5 is being hailed as equally competent in developing rich-media, adopted by Google and Apple. No third party plug-in is necessary to support it. HTML5 has to still take strides in creating a network of browser support. Right now, Chrome (Google) and Safari (Apple) support viewing of video developed with HTML5 (H.264). Firefox will most-probably support it in future and Internet Explorer 9.0 So Flash wins hands down in terms of available support.

Ring in the New: Flash E-learning to HTML5

CommLab India

Android and iOS devices do not support Flash. Apple has withdrawn support for Flash in its devices long back; Androids too gave up after the initial support. Watch this short video of Steve Jobs to know why Apple decided to withdraw its support to Flash. With everyone withdrawing Flash support, HTML5 has gained prominence. Be it Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, Google’s Chrome, Apple’s Safari, or Mozilla’s Firefox, learners can access courses immediately.

And whilst we know that Flash won’t be supported forever, the rumours of its demise are very much exaggerated. So what should drive adoption (aside from wanting to sit with the cool kids)? Chris Milk is a filmmaker and storyteller, using HTML5 not just for its technological functions but as a creative and collaborative tool. Really, it’s about using new technology to win emotional engagement with difficult content. Blog Technology

Online multimedia content in e-learning: Flash vs. HTML5

Matrix

A lot of technological advances support this pull method, with most LMSs permitting the embed of multimedia content files in the online courses. The last few years had witnessed a strong debate over the two technologies that make possible the embedding of multimedia content files in a web page: Flash and HTML5. Flash is a mature technology that runs well on all browsers, including older versions of Internet Explorer, which some businesses still use.

It wasn't very compliant with technology standards but many websites and business systems were built against its non-standard way of working.As the world moved on, and Microsoft attempted to make future versions of IE better support industry standards, it left many people dependent on the quirks of IE6 and it has taken years for organisations to upgrade to version 7 or 8, by which time Microsoft are now on version 11 and moving beyond!In

Flash is Dead: Long Live HTML5 for eLearning

LearnUpon

Adobe Flash technology has helped support the delivery of online multimedia content for nearly two decades. Three popular eLearning formats are also largely dependent on Flash technology for their delivery medium: SCORM, Tin Can (xAPI), and video. Flash will be allowed to die in 2020 as Adobe ceases to support the standard. Flash has been a useful technology for developers working with a broad range of online content types for many years – 20 maybe?

So…How Do You Build eLearning For iPads?

Upside Learning

And if HTML5 is key to delivering eLearning on the iPad, but unless your organisation is adopting the iPad as the ‘preferred’ device, HTML5 may not be the best option for developing your eLearning. HTML5 works best with IE10 and browsers like Maxthon, Chrome, Firefox and Safari. Web-apps, however, are built in standards-based technologies such as HTML5, CSS3 etc. Of course it doesn’t end here and as with technology there is always another option.

Anything that reduces calls into a company’s tech support (and thus lower the costs for that vendor’s customer support) will be incorportad. There are enough vendors who are not going into the widget space, but are enabling the integration possibilities of APIs, which are really offers a powerhouse potential (a future emerging technology topic). Will they support all the tablet vendors or just some? Firefox, Opera and IE9 are in the pipeline.
