Responsive Web Design: Creating Content for Better User Experience

G-Cube

According to the leading news and information resource site Mashable 2013 is the year of Responsive Web Design (RWD). But with varying devices with different screen resolutions, it becomes increasingly difficult for web developers to make the content compatible with every device and, at the same time, provide a uniform user experience. In addition to PCs, tablets and mobile phones, developers had to create different versions of the content for Windows, Android and the Apple systems!

Upside Learning

Due to this (and some other reasons like processor capability, device features, etc), not all devices support Flash – neither within the web-browser nor outside of it. Apart from AIR app, the same code and assets in any AIR app can further be used to deliver a mobile browser version using Flash Player 10.1. Apple’s decision of excluding Flash on their devices has resulted in some disappointment within our team and many others around the world.

Apple strikes against lagging sales rates with new iPads

Aptara

Apple strikes against lagging sales rates with new iPads. Complacency and lack of demand are the enemy in these cases, as hardware manufacturers want individuals to keep buying new versions of the same general platforms. All of this activity on the part of Apple, Samsung, HTC and their fellows has implications for content conversion - if tablets stay relevant over the long haul, they will be important platforms for media.

Standardizing these headaches so that web development is more consistant across all web-based devices is the goal of HTML5.

8 Things we MUST do in 2013 to seize the potential of mLearning

In 2012 Apple announced the iPhone 5, two new iPads and the new iPad mini; Google unveiled their first tablet, the nexus 7 and later the 10″ version; Amazon gave us three Kindle Fire HD tablets. Here’s another statistic that bodes well for mobile, Apple sold more iPads in Q4 2011 than any individual PC manufacturer sold PCs. Surf the web on these devices, it’s quite different from the desktop but get used to it because this is your next development frontier.

Usability and Networks

Clark Quinn

The rationale for the switch is that I don’t completely trust Google and Apple with my data. I had used Safari over Chrome because I trust Apple a wee bit more, and Firefox was a bit slow. And Safari just released a version that stops videos from auto-starting. Now, I want to have an integrated experience across my devices, so I downloaded the Firefox versions for my iDevices as well. I’ve been on the net since before there was a web.

HTML5 and Flash: Two Ways to Create Interactivity in Mobile Learning

Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning

The Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod are examples where your Flash elements simply won't work. Apple proposes that you use HTML5 instead, to build rich interfaces. In another post on HTML5 , I talk about its impact on web interactivity. Course developed interactivity only once, Raptivity takes care of building the two versions. Most e-learning developers assume the availability of the free Flash plug-in on the learner's browser. This works fine on desktops and laptops.

Flash & The Future of Interactive Content for eLearning

Adobe Captivate

Adobe has long played a leadership role in advancing interactivity and creative content – from video, to games and more – on the web. But as open standards like HTML5, WebGL and WebAssembly have matured over the past several years, most now provide many of the capabilities and functionalities that plugins pioneered and have become a viable alternative for content on the web. This will work across previous product versions that have support for HTML5 output.

Want to go mobile for learning and support?

Allison Rossett

Discussions often revolve around questions about native vs. mobile web apps. while mobile web apps take a ‘code once, run in all’ approach. There are two main ways of achieving this: 1) the website detects the width of the browser window to automatically alter the display for mobile dimensions, or 2) on loading the page, the code detects the browser to check if it is a mobile device – if it is, the user is sent to a mobile version of the website. Mobile Web App.

Your learners do not need Captivate installed on their computer to use an SWF, but they do need a modern web browser and the free Adobe Flash Player. Lessons published as HTML5 play on any computer or mobile device that supports HTML5, including the Apple mobile devices. In addition, older web browsers don't support HTML5. A desktop learner using an old web browser would get a message saying that their browser doesn't support HTML5. SWF and HTML5 versions.
