mLearnCon 2012 - June 21, 2012

Richard Clark

Director of Training

"Would you like that learning to go?" Part of the promise of mLearning is "anytime and anywhere," not just when you have WiFi. But creating and updating robust off-line learning can be a frustrating process. Fortunately, it's all manageable if you understand what's happening under the hood. While many techies will say that enabling off-line learning is as easy as "creating a manifest file" or "wrapping your pages in a phone application," they don't talk about setting up the Web server correctly, ensuring you can deploy updates, and letting the user do meaningful work off-line.

Session participants will examine the processes for making content available on- and off-line, both in HTML5 and in native applications that wrap Websites. You will see a robust mechanism for deploying and updating off-line learning, saving user data, sending it to the server when connected (e.g. for LMS updates), and adding advanced communications functionality for collaboration.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to create offline-enable HTML5 sites in four easy steps
  • Ways to ensure that users receive updates and fixes in a timely manner
  • Approaches to packaging Web pages into phone applications while avoiding the restrictions on local files
  • Methods to save data when the learner is off-line and communicate it back later
  • Where to locate resources to help you learn more

Technology discussed in this session: iOS, Android, JavaScript, and HTML5.

Audience: Intermediate-to-advanced designers and developers with experience developing Web-deployed learning. A reading knowledge of HTML and JavaScript or ActionScript is helpful but not required.
