Standard eLearning tools are great and you can do a lot with them, but they have their limits. There are parts of those tools that you can’t customize or control or, if you can, it takes a lot of hacking to get it the way you want. Some eLearning tools also produce large files with a lot of extra lines of code that make your courses slower and harder to interact with. Cost can be a factor too, as tools may be priced out for reach for some organizations.

In this session you’ll look at an alternative option for eLearning development - inexpensive HTML5 standards to build custom courses that have no limits. There are literally thousands of different coding libraries that allow you to add on and customize any type of functionality you want in your course. You’ll discover some of the libraries that you can use to create standard eLearning experiences as well as other libraries that allow you to add functionality that you can’t easily get with standard eLearning tools. The best part of all of this? Almost every library you’ll explore in this session is free! There is so much you can do with custom courses so let's start by exploring what's possible.

In this session, you will learn:

  • About custom course structure
  • Which JavaScript libraries can be used for eLearning
  • Which JavaScript libraries have resources you can use for developing AR and VR experiences
  • What you need to know about each library to use them effectively
