I think HTML5 will be the next standard for e-learning content development. It's very flexible, interoperable and there is a potential in it. The most important is working on web browser without any plugin and high power consumption. We have now one standard for all applications - business app, LMS app, e-learning content.

Thats an interesting question. I will love to take an Skillsoft Course thru my iPad. But i believe SkillSoft won't invest in to an HTML5 conversion Project. Since Android almost got flash, and Frash project for iPad is under development (Flash over Safari on Jailbroken iPads). But again, It would be a hit, an iPad App to play SkillSoft courses.


Yes, you are correct. With the well-publicized format war between Apple and Adobe, neither the iPhone nor the iPad supports Adobe Flash, which is a requirement for high-end formal online training. There is significant market pressure on Apple to support Flash, but we shall see. You can certainly access other SkillSoft non-Flash assets, including downloadable videos and 7 million pages of Books24x7 searchable professional reference content on both iPhone and iPad.


both multitasking and enterprise distribution of apps is enabled on iphone os 4, which comes to the ipad in the fall.

John - great review. I was able to briefly "play" with someone elses just yesterday. Looks very cool. Because of the issue with Flash, how long until SkillSoft courses would be available on the iPad?
