Training and Responsive Design

Your smart device isn’t a tiny tv.

It seems that when we try to create responsive pages for training, we don’t actually think about how people use these different devices. When adapting your content for smart devices, it’s important to keep in mind that your smart device isn’t a tiny TV. Smartphones and tablets aren’t used the same way as desktops, and they certainly shouldn’t all be treated the same way. A common error is to throw all your content onto your smart device screen in the same format as a desktop. This might be helpful – if you’re a mouse – but you’re not, and neither are your employees.

It’s important to take into consideration what your employees are doing when they are using different devices. This information will guide you in deciding what format and design is appropriate for your video and web pages.

In our blog post on elearningindustry.com, you will learn about:

  • The difference between how people use smartphones, tablets, and desktop computers
  • The future of smart device use
  • Flash’s place within the future of online video
