The HTML5 contest has closed- 5 more days to put in your votes!

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 
While many of the entries might not be appreciated for the ID skills, I’m sure the contest helped the community realize the possibilities (and current limitations) of HTML5 eLearning authoring. We had 35 entries in this contest, three of which will receive the iPad. Two of these will be determined based on popular vote, while the third will be awarded by an expert panel – for the best content as judged by them.
In the next few days the team here will also point out the entries they’ve liked. Two entries stood out for me- Continue reading…

SWF speaks to HTML page… through JavaScript!

Most of us, sometime or the other, have had a need to manipulate the HTML page that contains the Captivate SWF file. The requirement may have been to display a custom message or change an image in the HTML page on click of a button inside the SWF. This can be achieved by sending data to the HTML file through JavaScript. The possibilities of combining Captivate and JavaScript really excited me and thought of sharing a few examples with you through this post. To get a feel of what I’m talking about, click the buttons in the SWF below and see how the message text and banner image in HTML changes. Remember, the text and image are not part of the SWF…they are outside the SWF, on the HTML page.

The How & Why of iPads, HTML5 & Mobile Devices in eLearning, Training & Education

I’ve been itching to write some about the proliferation of mobile devices in the wake of Tablet computers like the Apple iPad, the Samsung Galaxy, the Blackberry Playbook and a myriad of others for quite a while. Much of what I’ve read is very technical and always seems a little heavy on hype and light on practical solutions for eLearning. The salient question is, should we as eLearning developers be looking at ways to move our content onto these mobile devices in order to more effectively reach our audience? The answer is that we of course should, but also that we are faced with a host of new challenges as soon as we attempt to Continue reading…
