  • Agreed with michelekel. It's 2014, and HTML5 has gone a long way. In fact, companies such as CodeCademy are building entire e-learning systems with HTML5 as the front-end.

  • About what in particular? It doesn't mean that we should not start trying creating HTML5 e-learning content, but many of his points are still relevant. (e.g. no set standard on video / audio content and many clients still rely on IE, of which still lags behind on being compliant with the HTML5 spec.) If development was concentrated on mobile / tablets, I agree since Adobe has lifted support for Flash mobile. (Firefox mobile and the RIM Playbook offer it though.) And for those who are comfortable with Flash, creating AIR applications might be the way to go.

  5. But, is HTML5 ready for eLearning Development?
  6. But, is HTML5 ready for eLearning Development? More specifically, is it ready to compete with Flash for eLearning Development?
  7. NO Read more

  10. HTML5 still has some realconstraints and it may notreplace Flash for eLearning/mLearning development in thenear future.In fact, it may not replace Flash at all because…
  11. BROWSERS DO NOT PROVIDEFULL SUPPORT FOR HTML5
  12. None of the web browsers formobile or desktop havefull HTML 5 implementations atpresent.
  13. Internet Explorer (IE 6, 7 and8), the most widely used webbrowser, has no support forHTML5.
  14. Internet Explorer (IE 6, 7 and8), the most widely used webbrowser, has no support forHTML5. The new version (IE 9) which is expected to be released sometime in 2011 will support HTML5.
  15. Even Apple iPad Safaribrowser doesn’t have full HTML5support.
  16. CROSS PLATFORM /BROWSER COMPATIBILITY
  17. Every browser has its own renderingmechanism so an application developedfor iPad Safari is not guaranteed towork well in other browsers like IE, Firefoxor Chrome.
  18. Every browser has its own renderingmechanism so an application developedfor iPad Safari is not guaranteed towork well in other browsers like IE, Firefoxor Chrome. Developers will have to make modifications in the code to make it work in different browsers.
  19. This is not thecase with pluginslike Flash orSilverlight wherethe applications oncedeveloped can runon all thebrowserswithout anymodifications.
  20. AUDIO/VIDEOSUPPORT
  21. HTML5 has addednew video andaudio tags thatcan play video/audio ina browser withouta plug-in but itdoesn’tofficiallysupport any videoor audio format.
  22. Content developers will have to spend more time in encoding thevideos to Ogg Theora and to H.264 formats so that all majorbrowsers are supported.
  23. Content developers will have to spend more time in encoding thevideos to Ogg Theora and to H.264 formats so that all majorbrowsers are supported.But this is not sufficient as IE doesn’t support the video tagand would not be able to play the video or audio file without aplug-in.
  24. Flash supports FLV/FV4 formatsand those are not browserdependent.
  25. Flash supports FLV/FV4 formatsand those are not browserdependent. Also, Flash or Silverlight video/audio supports securemedia streaming; there is no clear counterpart for this in HTML5.
  26. DEVELOPMENTTOOLS
  27. There are no tools available(except Dreamweaver CS5*) thatcan create animationsfor HTML5 having a gooddesigner developerworkflow required to createquality graphics and animationslike Flash Professional. *Need to explore its HTML5 support
  28. To create animations with HTML5, developers have to code animations using JavaScript and CSS.
  29. To create animations with HTML5, developers have to code animations using JavaScript and CSS.A task which tools like Flash professional can do in minutes may take hours, if not days, to do using HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript.
  30. SUMMARYHTML5 is not ready for eLearning development because:• Browsers don’t provide full support for HTML5• Issues with Cross Platform / Browser Compatibility• Lack of Audio / Video Support• Lack of Development Tools
