Okay, the first day of ASTD TK13 has wrapped up – at least from the expo side of the house. Can output to MP4 or Flash, I loved the MP4. Please note they do not yet support HTML5, but again with MP4 no worries – it can be seen on any tablet, including iPad. Thursday: Recap day two of the ASTD TK13 show, including expo. Excuse any strange text breaks – writing from the WordPress iOS app. Let’s jump right in for the game action. TOUCHDOWN.

DevLearn 2011 – Notes from One ID Challenge and HTML5 Authoring Tool Review

E-learning Uncovered

HTML5 Authoring Tool Review. I started writing and talking about HTML5 and its potential impact on elearning about a year and a half ago, and for the first year, one of the major obstacles was the lack of tools that output to HTML5.

TechSmith Camtasia Studio 8: One Smart Player

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

Arguably, the most common way to publish a Camtasia project is as a Flash SWF. Although your learners will not need Camtasia installed on their computer to use a SWF, they will need a modern web browser and the free Adobe Flash Player (www.adobe.com). According to Adobe, the Flash Player is installed on most of the world's computers.  The Smart Player automatically detects if the learner's device or browser supports Flash.

Samsung Galaxy S is expected to be the first real challenger to the iPad, it runs on Android OS, offers Flash 10.1 and HTML5. Again, the iPad runs only with HTML5, not Flash 10.1. True, the other tablets and Samsung offer Flash 10.1, but they offer HTML5 too. What browsers did they test on, because the current browsers available and the beta and new versions being released – are different in a few ways, especially when it comes to HTML5.

Samsung Galaxy S is expected to be the first real challenger to the iPad, it runs on Android OS, offers Flash 10.1 and HTML5. Again, the iPad runs with HTML5, not Flash nor Java. True, the other tablets and Samsung offer Flash 10.1 and Java, but they offer HTML5 too. However, if you tested them in Avant, an alternative browser used by many people, they were not – yet Avant used Flash and Java. Same issue occurred with Opera – used Flash and Java.

Janhavi Padture – Crystal Balling with Learnnovators

Learnnovators

Janhavi has spoken at various industry conferences (including AICC, ASTD, eLearning Guild) and local groups on topics pertaining to online learning. One area where these tools will continue to invest in will be HTML5 and mobile responsive output. The good news with HTML5 which is a fast emerging standard for interactivity is that it is much easier to make it accessible. The catch though is that not all browsers support the accessibility constructs in HTML5.

HTML5 will be available on every one of those tablets, plus they will offer Flash (notable exception the iPad). Bigger screen, higher horsepower, gbs, APIs in HTML5 – greater multimedia experience for anyone and geolocation – huge, especially for people who do new hire training or want to create a real world scenario brought within the tablet HTML5 structure.

However, with ASTD’s TechKnowledge 2011, starting next week, I’m going to hold off until after TK11, to write on virtual worlds. Trivantis – Lectora Inspire – the product now supports HTML5, and comes with templates for tablets including the iPad – which is a good thing, since I will have my iPad with me. It offers the ability to create courses in HTML5 or Flash. So, you can still have audio/video in HTML5, just as you can with Flash.

Challenge to Learn

So my first ICE ASTD conference is finished. Over the past few years we had big leading topics in the world of learning; Curating, Mobile, Flash vs HTML5, TinCan. Everybody now understands that Flash is dead (no matter how unbelievable that seemed a year and a half ago).

Some Thoughts On Tablet Learning (aka Elearning On iPads)

Upside Learning

In a recent ASTD webinar on Mobile Learning it was noted that it’s the iPad that’s really got mlearning kick started in the workplace (link to webinar recording and notes). In my opinion if you’re creating elearning primarily for desktops it would be best to use Flash.

Flash vs. HTML5 : This is actually not a point of debate anymore. HTML5 is the future of mobile web, even if it’s not ready to the extent we believe it to be. Fact is, flash still delivers much better elearning experience than HTML5.

Resist the temptation to simply convert your eLearning desktop to HTML5. Also learn everything you can about new technologies like HTML5, responsive design, CSS3 and begin to let go of some of the older technologies like Flash. 2012 has been an amazing year for mobile!

Interestingly, these statistics are only marginally better than those reported by ASTD for the US market in May 2012. This article was originally published in Learning Technologies 2013’s special show guide issue.

Avoid the Curse of the Frankencourse

Rapid eLearning

Most rapid elearning tools are like Articulate Presenter and convert PowerPoint slides to Flash (and soon HTML5). Or if you’re using other products you’ll add the Flash output to the PowerPoint slide. But if you do combine PowerPoint-to-Flash with other applications, you’ll need to examine the tools.

Finally, I could create a lot of the interactivity that I wanted to do but couldn’t because I didn’t have the Flash programming skills. Much better than what you get with HTML5 which has some limitations when it comes to interactive content. July 25: Portland, OR (ASTD).

E-learning Uncovered

Today we’re excited to share impressions on another new authoring tool: Allen Interactions’ ZebraZapps, which launches at ASTD ICE in about a week. In fact, in terms of power, its capabilities are more in a league with Flash than with the majority of most rapid development tools. The big advantage that Zebra has over Flash, though, is in its ease of use.
