How to develop HTML5 in-budget and faster content

September 29th, 2015 | Vivek Bhide | Tags:

To succeed in the e-learning business, it is necessary to master the HTML5 skills. Content for e-learning market is created using the HTML5 tools available and is considered an industry standard for its flexibility and improved dynamics.

HTML5 is a programming language that allows you to author e-learning to work on web and mobile. Whether it is flexible hassle-free user experiences, greater consistency between web browsers or easy access Mobile resources there is a plethora of reasons why HTML5 is the future of E-Learning.

 

So, it is very important to know the techniques for making e-learning content which is both effective and can help in reaching the learners and help them in understanding and deciphering the text.

These are the some of the ways than one can use HTML5 effectively for making the content for the e-learning industry.

Standards

As an emergent technology HTML5 standards are subject to change. Keeping up with browser updates and specification changes is a real pain though and keeps you away from making great content. You should leverage tools that can update to the latest technologies automatically.

Browser

HTML performance depends upon your browsers compatibility, back in the olden days you would install a clunky Flash plugin which would allow interactions to work in most browsers. Having a great browser and using cloud-based authoring tools will stop you from clogging up your computer with software.

Format

Current tech is plug-in free which allows greater Mobile learning experiences, but can cause issues with media formats as different Browsers use different formats. It is wise to use a couple of different formats to accommodate different browsers, and crucially different internet connections. A couple of extra minutes setting this up has paid dividends for me in the past and prevented potential frustration from learners. An easier way to avoid format issues when creating your e-learning is to use a tool with a built in HTML player.

Animation

Animations are vital to creating engagement in E-learning. HTML5 does not use the same Flash-based technology and this can cause some issues when viewing animations on older browsers.

Code

With HTML5, files are rendered on the user’s computer. This means that Javascript, CSS and HTML can be viewed. This is great if you’re learning to code and want to see how the big boys work, but not so great when it comes to protecting your intellectual property. To combat code copying, some developers minify their work, which involves removing all unnecessary characters from the source code without changing its functionality and making it difficult for content to be copied easily.

So, the importance of this programming tool is understood and efforts should be made to utilize its functionality to create practical content for the learners.

    I want to add that most of the web browsers support HTML 5 content and this is a boon to e-learning developers because once they develop content in this format, it can be accessed by learners from any browser.
