Apple iPad Disappoints eLearning Industry

Upside Learning

I have great respect for Apple as an organization particularly because I use an iPhone and I think the iPhone has definitely become one of those game-changers in the smartphone world and by a large margin. I was looking forward to the Apple iPad even more so as we have been doing good stuff on mobile learning and putting up applications and tools on iPhone as pilots and on a trial basis. I have failed to understand reasons behind Apple’s continued ignorance of Flash.

Apple iBooks Author for Interactive Textbooks and Mobile Learning [VIDEO]

mLearning Revolution

Today Apple unveiled iBooks 2 for the iPad and iBooks Author for the Mac.

The whole process feels a lot like developing eLearning courses, but with a mobile learning twist to it. Mobile Learning , mLearning , Apple , iBooks.

24 Hours with the Apple Watch

Tom Spiglanin

My Apple Watch arrived a few days ago. The packaging itself is classically Apple. Also in typical Apple fashion, the instruction manual was a few pages at most, in a dozen languages with lots of photos. In seconds the Apple logo appeared and I walked through the setup process, pairing it with my phone in just minutes. Apple markets the watch as their most personal device yet, and this is precisely why I wanted one. Changing Workplace mobile Mobile Technology

Adobe Captivate 5.5: At Long Last. Publish Support for Apple Mobile Devices

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Kevin Siegel Anyone who created eLearning lessons using any version of Adobe Captivate older than version 5 is painfully aware that Captivate does not offer publishing options for any of the Apple mobile devices (iPhone, iPad or iPod). It's been a real issue for developers who love Captivate, but are required to create content for the Apple devices, and are therefore forced to use other tools such as Camtasia.
