Why you Need to Purchase a HTML5 Authoring Tool
Reason #1: Flash based eLearning content won’t play on the iPad or iPhone.
You get the picture of a Lego you see here…
Reason #2: A recent survey of just over 1,600 business technology buyers, conducted by ChangeWave Research, found that 22 percent of respondents were planning to buy tablet computers during the second quarter of 2012. Bottom line…the iPad is not a fad and will have a HUGE effect on how you deliver eLearning in the very near future.
As a Learning and Development professional, you need to be able to deliver Mobile eLearning curriculum to Apple devices. Ideally you will have your Mobile eLearning program implemented before you get the calls, emails, texts, smoke signals from your students asking why they can’t take their eLearning on their iPads.
Reason #3: Delivering Mobile eLearning content to mobile devices is different. For example, you can’t take an eLearning course on an iPhone as the screen is much smaller.
