    I want to make sure that the course I am developing will be compatible with mobile devices. How do I make sure that it is HTML5 compatible? Or,what are the steps to setting it up right at the beginning?

    Lectora outputs valid HTML5 compatible files, so you don’t have to worry about it. You can use Lectora to convert audio and video files to correct formats (MP4), and of course you cannot add any Flash files to your course.

    Thank you very much for the response. Just so I understand correctly, does that mean that there are not any settings I need to mess with in order to get my course to work correctly on any mobile device and also work well with laptops and desktops?

    No, you don’t have to mess with the settings. But what you absolutely should do is to test, test and test your course. As early as possible.

    What is the industry standard for screen resolution. Again, I am designing a course that needs to be available via laptops, ipads, and other tablets.

    Is there a standard resolution screen size? Or, can I go with the 1024 x 768?

    Thanks!

    Hi

    Here is an How-To Course: Creating Content for Tablets. The dimensions of that title is 1009×662 but I think you can use the 1024px widht as well.

    http://lectora.com/create-mobile-learning-content-ipads/index.html

    And here is another useful link https://lectora.com/publish-e-learning-to-ipad-iphone-mobile-learning

    I think it is mainly designed for iPad. Other tablet devices have different screen resolutions, but the course can be viewed there too.

    But if you design a course to smartphones that is another story. 🙂

    Personally speaking I think that when you design an e-learning course you should put a tremendous effort in boosting the user experience. This means creating dedicated versions of your courses for different devices. It’s normal that a course developed for desktop or tablet use won’t have a nice user experience on mobile. Developing in HTML5 will surely shorten dev time, but won’t bring the best results.

    Hope it was helpful,

    Best,

    Here is something I found that should prove very useful for you. It’s a test course created by Lectora:
    How-To-Course: Creating Content for Tablets – A Designer’s Guide

    By opening the course within your tablet, and making selections about what elements you will be including within your course, it will recommend the settings you’ll need for your course.

    Also, there is this:
    Building Finger-friendly Buttons for m-Learning (Lectora)

    Attached please also find a Responsive Course Design Storyboarding Kit put out by Lectora….

    Remember – there are many elements you need to consider when developing mobile learning including:

    • No flash
    • No drag-drop interactions
    • Export video to MP4

    … just to name a few.

    Have fun!
