HTML5 for iPad – Adobe offering preview output

Adobe may be trying to answer the question that has consumed (frustrated, divided and generally been kerfuffle causing) the e-learning world – what’s going on with the iPad?  Well, if you pop over to Adobe Captivate’s facebook page, you can sign up for a peek at their early HTML5 output.

Social learning deconstructed – simple but effective

Clark Quinn’s recent post on social learning is a great reminder to all that work in instructional design on what we are trying to achieve by bringing groups of people together around a shared topic online. The technical means by which we deliver this and on what device is often the topic that shouts the […]
