Instructional designers tend to define what is possible by the limitations of our chosen authoring tools. We remove ideas like responsive courses from consideration because our authoring tools don’t support it. Sometimes common modern web practices don’t always transfer over to eLearning authoring tools until it is too late. Why not take control over what you can do with your eLearning by building it yourself?

In this hands-on session, you will explore how jQuery Mobile enables you to build responsive custom mobile applications that not only take advantage of modern web technology, but simplify development without requiring heavy amounts of coding. You will learn how jQuery Mobile removes many of the constraints placed by eLearning authoring tools and how to build custom, mobile-first HTML5 quickly and easily. You will examine how to integrate the Experience API (xAPI) into HTML5 to enable you to track progress within your learning management system (LMS) or learning record store (LRS).

In this session, you will learn:

  • jQuery Mobile basics
  • How to build a player in jQuery Mobile
  • How to make your jQuery Experience API (xAPI) compliant
  • How to develop a custom HTML5 course

Intermediate and advanced designers, developers, and project managers who know basic HTML5 formatting.
