What Is HTML5?
HTML5 is the newest hyper text markup language for websites from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The first draft was made public in 2008, but not much happened until 2011. In 2011, HTML5 was released and people started writing about it and using it, but the support in different browsers was still poor. Today all major browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera, IE) offer HTML5 support, therefore the newest HTML technology can be used at its best today.

A reality indeed. As HTML5’s impact continues to ripple, many companies are dealing with the necessity of abandoning Flash applications. HTML5 is more flexible, allows movement, doesn’t affect SEO and doesn’t need a plug-in.
The migration of Flash eLearning courses to HTML5
E-learning, Training, Media organizations andmarketing departments of all kinds of companies have huge volumes of Interactive Flash content that has traditionally been consumed on desktops. With the rapid proliferation of smart phones and tablets, enterprises are faced with the prospect of their existing content becoming obsolete, since popular mobile platforms don't support Interactive Flash.
While new content can be developed on a platform an industry standard format like HTML5, ground-up redevelopment of existing Interactive Flash content for mobile devices is not an option for most enterprises. What they need is a high-quality yet rapid solution for migrating their legacy of Interactive Flash content to HTML5.
Flash to HTML5 Migration
The new HTML5 content is able to fulfill the greater demands on usability posed by the varying screen sizes and resolutions of mobile devices. Recognizing that mobile devices don't always have the same processing horsepower of desktops, our migration/conversion process leverages our framework to ensure that the repurposed HTML5 can perform on the most popular mobile platforms. The framework adheres to content standards and supports various fundamental interactive behaviors like programmed workflows, directional information, enhanced content menus, multimedia content delivering, 2d animations, Voice synchronization, Interactivity, Status bar, Volume controllers, Slide bar, Book mark, Search, standard navigation features i.e. Next, Previous, Menu amongst several others
With mobile devices being used and preferred for numerous multimedia applications, we shouldn’t forget something that Apple first pointed out. Flash does use too much processing and battery power; something that makes it disadvantageous. So migration to HTML becomes unavoidable.
In a continuously changing and fast paced environment, we can’t chain users to their desks and offices. So the creation of HTML5 eLearning applications, training material, presentations etc. or the conversion of Flash to HTML for mobile devices has become inevitable.
