2011 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
The aim of this paper is to explore how e-learning can be delivered and consumed in the future using new technologies. First, this paper presents the current state of e-learning and then discusses various issues and problems with e-learning environments. Then, this paper explains HTML5 and related web standards and technologies and argues as to how HTML5 in combination with other modern web technologies such as JQuery and CSS3 can be used to enhance and enrich e-learning environments. Next, this paper defines key themes of an e-learning environment such as, collaboration, interaction, individualization, updated relevant content, performance, device ubiquity, and poor completion rates and explains how specific attributes of HTML5 and related technologies can enhance these themes. Finally, this paper concludes with suggestions for future designs of e-learning environments and calls for using the innovative attributes of HTML5 to create a truly interactive, dynamic, and collaborative e-learning web application.
