The Captivate HTML5 contest has closed for entries. The viewing gallery is still open to give you an opportunity to cast your vote. Thank you for participating in this contest. The general interest can be gauged from the fact that many of the top entries have close to 10,000 views and 1,500 FB ‘Likes’ each. If you’re yet to view some of the entries, please do take some time to appreciate the efforts of the community in pioneering HTML5 eLearning
