HTML5 vs Flash

Dec 29, 2012

I am wondering.

When should I use HTML5 and when Flash?

What is the value of HTML5 in elearning? If someone asked me what is "better"  HTML5 or Flash for elearning? What should I answer?

Yeah, this can be quite challenging. (insert curses about lack of flash support on unnamed devices) HTML5 output is certainly limited in functionality at this stage in the game and I would avoid it if possible. However, if you need accessibility on mobile devices there is no avoiding it. Unfortunately, you may find yourself in need of custom services to get the course you want in HTML5.
