103 Fluid Boxes or Breakpoints for Responsive eLearning Design
1:30 PM - 2:30 PM Tuesday, October 24
Sales of smartphones are exceeding those of traditional phones, and sales of tablets are exceeding those of desktop and laptop computers. As an eLearning developer, this means you will likely need to create courses that can be accessed by all kinds of devices. It also means that the size of the screen your learners use to access your eLearning lessons can vary widely. You could develop several Captivate projects that contain the same content but are sized to work on specific devices; however, you’d have to edit and update several projects. Who wants to do that? Additionally, who could possibly consider every screen size for every device? Even if you could build lessons for every screen size known today, what about the screen sizes for devices that have yet to be invented?
The solution is responsive design: an approach to development that allows for flexible layouts and flexible images and assets. In this session, you will explore using this approach as an alternative to managing multiple Captivate projects. You’ll find out how to create a single responsive project that provides optimal viewing, and an effective learning experience, across a wide range of devices and screen sizes.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to ensure your eLearning projects are mobile-ready/-friendly
- How best to develop content using responsive design
- How you can develop content using fluid boxes
