How do you access the Internet and your online courses? If you're like most people in 2013, it's probably from a lot of different devices--desktop PCs, tablets, mobile phones, maybe even a wi-fi connected television.

Providing the code to display content in a uniform way across all of these devices might be a technology called HTML5. It's gaining increasing support in the developer community. From gaming apps to dynamic page layouts, HTML5 offers the promise of cross-platform support at a lower price of development.

Browsers like Chrome are leading the way with better HTML5 support. And course authoring tools like Articulate Storyline are now outputting to HTML5 with capabilities on par with Flash. For the end user, it means more engaging yet fully accessible learning content, anytime, anywhere.


Educadium has been incorporating HTML5 developments into its LMS road map and course development projects. Some are available for view on our demonstration sites. Educadium can even offer your EasyCampus LMS site an HTML5 video player to help you embed HTML5-authored videos in your courses.

Recently, Educadium President Todd Harris sat down with LMS consultancy Tagoras to discuss some of the trends in HTML5 and how it's impacting the learning management market. Check out the audio interview.
