Multi-device eLearning courses

With the use of mobile devices skyrocketing, the way eLearning courses are viewed is changing. More and more people are choosing to learn on the go with their phones or tablets at times and locations of their choosing.

mLearning Apps: What we offer

Native mLearning Apps

These apps are designed for specific mobile platforms using vendor SDKs and platform-specific programming languages. For IOS, we use Objective-C or Swift, and for Android, Java is the default, while Windows needs C#. We also build Native apps using cross-platform tools like Xamarin.

Highlights:
  • Available to users in offline mode once downloaded.
  • Provides an enhanced user experience by making full use of device hardware functionality like camera, GPS, audio and video, touch screen functions.
  • LMS Tracking is possible with custom-built SCORM compliant native apps that can be tracked by LMS with mobile-enabled capabilities.

Web mLearning Apps

Web mobile apps are created with HTML5 as the foundation. These apps are distributed through a central online location and can be accessed through a web browser installed on a mobile device.

Highlights:
  • Provides a responsive learning experience irrespective of the device or operation system used.
  • Web apps do not utilize device memory as they are hosted online.
  • SCORM compliant web apps can easily provide a viable tracking control to mobile enabled LMS’s.
  • Web apps do not provide the high-quality appearance of the content as compared to Native apps. The user experience may be compromised.

Hybrid mLearning Apps

Overall, hybrid mobile apps enjoy the best of both worlds – Native and Web. We use frameworks like PhoneGap to develop hybrid apps.

Highlights:
  • Can be run on multiple platforms
  • Can exploit the device hardware functionality to provide a better user experience
Our Approach:

Netsmartz has the capability to develop native apps, web apps, and hybrid apps custom-built to meet your specific eLearning requirements. Factors such as app security, offline accessibility, touch-screen functionality, user experience, SCORM compliance, and responsive learning requirements are the factors we consider before recommending which type of mLearning app should be developed.
