The increasing use of tablets and mobile devices and the move away from Flash development is bringing HTML5 to the forefront of eLearning. Many major authoring tool companies are actively working on delivering HTML5 output. Even if you aren’t currently developing content for the most popular tablet, the iPad, you need an alternate to Adobe’s Flash Mobile. This means that if you’re developing for tablets, you’re looking for a non-Flash way to build learning content. And if you’ve done any research, you know that HTML5 is one of the better approaches.

In this report, Judy Unrein discusses what you need to know about HTML5 and eLearning—what it is and how it works, the advantages it has for eLearning (on tablets, laptops, and desktops), its capabilities, considerations for delivery, development, and design, the available authoring tools, and case studies.
