Published on

Designing and developing interactive mobile learning content presents device level challenges, such as small and varying screen sizes, limited processing power, variability of input mechanisms (keypad, keyboard, pointer, touch screen etc), variety of operating systems, battery life, and many more. This presentation will help you understand some various technical aspects and challenges to consider while developing mobile learning interactions.

  • Oversimplified representation   Development environment, Internet Connectivity , Deployment, Speed, Rich media compatibility, Content searchable on web , Animation development, Cross platform compatibility Native: Platform dependent, Not required, has to be installed/ downloaded, Fast, Fewer Issues, No, More sophisticated - by accessing core animation framework using native code, Must be developed for each platform separately Web: Platform independent, Required, n/a (updates propogate immediately), Slower, Limited by Audio/video support inconsistencies within browsers, Yes, Good - but less flexibility, can be achieved relatively easily using
  • Myth #6 – Mobile web is better/easier than mobile apps (native apps). Not in our opinion…but we support both!
