Why you Need to Purchase a HTML5 Authoring Tool
Reason #1:Â FlashÂ based eLearning contentÂ won’t play on the iPad or Â iPhone.
You get the picture of a Lego you see here…
Reason #2: Â A recent survey of just over 1,600 business technology buyers, conducted by ChangeWave Research, found thatÂ 22 percentÂ of respondents wereÂ planning to buy tablet computersÂ during the second quarter of 2012. Bottom line…the iPad is not a fadÂ and will have aÂ HUGEÂ effect on how you deliver eLearning in the very near future.
As a Learning and Development professional, you need to be able to deliverÂ Mobile eLearning curriculumÂ to Apple devices. Ideally you will have your Mobile eLearning program implemented before you get theÂ calls, emails, texts, smoke signalsÂ from your students asking why they canâ€™t take their eLearning on their iPads.
Reason #3: Delivering Mobile eLearning content to mobile devices is different. For example,Â you canâ€™t take an eLearning course on an iPhoneÂ as the screen is much smaller.
Donâ€™t Panic! All is well, thanks to the new crop of HTML5 Authoring Tools that willÂ publish eLearning contentÂ that will play on mobile devices. These tools allow you to publish your content toÂ HTML5 the new format that plays on mobile devices as well as computers.Â

One great thing about Web based tools is that there many video tutorials available to show you the ropes. So donâ€™t panic! All is well. Then you want to add test questions. Not to worry, this is easy and straightforward and lots of tutorials available if you get stuck.
At this point you could actually push the â€œpublishâ€ button. WARNING! Donâ€™t do this. Everyone will hate you because your Custom Restaurant eLearning Course will be painfully boring. Why? Because it wonâ€™t have your charming self presenting the material to add interest and excitement.
So, you need to add animations to make stuff move around. Donâ€™t panic! Lots of tutorials available. Also, you should add vocal tracks as well. If you want to get fancy and I know you do, you should also add background music to add depth to your content.
You can actually download background music for free at Soundcloud.
