What is the Future of in E-Learning?


Well, in this blog post, I reflect on potential points that can contribute to the positive future of HTML5 in E-learning 🙂 So here goes, some of the points in favor of HTML5:

  • Ever-exploding market value due to growth in tablets, mobile devices, responsive design, and advances in HTML
  • Increasing support for standards in various browsers
  • Better support for creating HTML5-based apps
  • The increasing effort being invested in leveraging greater efficiency out of the powerful combination of HTML5, CSS3, and JS together
  • IE Versions above 8 and the Google Chrome Framework are offering workarounds, around hindering blocks that prevent HTML5 from exhibiting its full glory in earlier browser versions
  • Design Learning and communication for mobile and multi-devices, needs to come up as a separate academic subject of professional or vocational value, for path-breaking design and user-experience to emerge in the current markets
  • The continuing flourishing of infographics in recent times is a great step forward in this direction
  • With Articulate Xerte iSpring going all out HTML5, the days of Flash are now numbered
  • With the variety of screen-sizes on HTCs and Galaxys, Laptops are all set to take the place of Desktops, and tablets are almost the new laptops on the move
  • The next 5 years are all set to witness the transition in how technology is viewed, not just by enthusiasts, innovators, and adopters, but even by the common layman
  • There are people who got used to ActionScript, and there are others using good old JavaScript, [which is long overdue for an update now], who are facing hindrance with decent tools for HTML5. Meanwhile TypeScript is an emerging alternative, but at its current evolving stage, it is frustrating. And then there’s Adobe Edge Animate beginning to trying to take care of the creative aspects of this as well. But again, it is still in its evolutionary phase.
  • IE10 is trying to hold up proper adoption of HTML5, but Firefox 8 is better
  • Only large organizations, such as Banks, Insurance, Defense etc., can keep IE and Flash standing anymore, due to huge investments on massive proprietory systems compatible with IE

There are so many more points I wish to add to this list, but the reader attention span tends to be small and the reader retention and recall value is lost, when too many points clutter the small space of a blog post. I am open to sharing knowledge if anyone has an in-person or one-to-one query for me, with respect to this topic 🙂
