3 Rapid E-learning Development Tools

CommLab India

For years, Adobe Flash was the uncrowned king of e-learning development software. You could create any animation or visual using this powerful tool. Flash fails to meet this requirement as it is incompatible with most of these mobile devices and modern browsers. Another disadvantage of Flash is that it takes a long time (several weeks and even months) to develop online courses. As of 2014, over 48% of the companies use rapid authoring tools.

Bottom-Line Performance

A tablet such as an iPad is preferable to any smartphone if the solution is truly a “course” versus a just-in-time performance support tool. Video is an acceptable replacement for Flash. Because iPhones and iPads do not support Flash – and most traditional e-courses leverage a lot of it – there is a lot of conversion of Flash animations to video formats. By the end of 2011, HTML5 will be supported on all major mobile browsers.
