Thanks for the link to the blog post. I'm currently comparing what we could do for mLearning using HTML5 through Adobe Edge for example as an alternative option to a mobile authoring tool. I'm still at the early stages of looking into this so would welcome any thoughts anyone has.
At Brighton and Hove City council we upgraded to IE 7 around a year (plus) ago. As we have had problems with coures authored in Articulate I have asked our ICT tyeam about upgrading to IE8 or 9 or rolling out Firefox as an alternative, and I believe ther are no plans to do this (probably for a few years to coome), given that we were using IE6 not so long ago.
So I beleive until large scale organisations adopt HTML 5 browsers therein lies the rub!
Hi, I am planning on using it in e-learning as I'm hopeful it will remove some of the issues we see with Flash. Flash developers from what I understand can export to HTML from the application so there is still a need for them.
I'm also hopeful it will make mobile content easier to accommodate as well.
HTML5 does indeed open up opportunities to develop more quality, engaging mobile learning, and there is proof for why more L&D departments should champion an H5-friendly workplace, as according to the initial findings from the 2011 Towards Maturity Learning Technology Benchmark mobile learning is beginning to establish itself as mainstream technology for learning. With mobile technology usage increasing by 10% since 2010, it will certainly be interesting to see what the barriers to mobile learning adoption are, when the full report is published on November the 10th.
