The introduction of HTML5 has boosted the growth of the global e-learning market. For instance, HTML5 has reduced the need for creating apps used for e-learning. In addition, HTML5 is compatible with many Web browsers and mobile OS, and is capable of providing better performance, and enriched multimedia and connectivity.
Flash was the major platform used by content developers before the advent of HTML5. However, as many mobile devices do not support flash content, HTML5 is now increasingly being used to deliver interactive content and videos through mobile phones.
Despite the many benefits associated with HTML5, it is still considered a new technology, and content developers are not experienced enough to develop content through it. However, this trend is catching up fast and is likely to contribute to the growth of the global e-learning market in the near future. According to a recent report, the growth of the global e-learning market is driven by several factors, of which the increasing acceptance of e-learning in the corporate sector is a major driver. In order to reduce training costs and increase employee productivity, companies are increasingly adopting e-learning solutions.
