HTML has long been the programming language that supported most of the content on the Internet. Currently, developers of online solutions would have to completely rework their programs into different mobile versions for different devices. An app designed to run on an iPad will not currently run on an Android and vice versa. Widespread adoption of HTML5 stands to change all that.
HTML5 will allow programs to run through a web browser instead of a particular operating system. Consumers will be able to access the same online content from a device by any manufacturer. The same program will run on the tablet, PC, smartphone, and laptop even if all these devices run incompatible
HTML5 does this by allowing content to run through the browser complete with multimedia and editing functions that currently require plug-ins or other workarounds, or that cannot be done at all. It essentially turns the browser into a single platform. It also allows users to use cloud-based storage.
E-learning solutions will be cheaper and easier to develop and far easier for learners to access. Organizations will be able to purchase fewer devices.
Mobile learning will be easier to create and easier to utilize.
