HTML5 & Self-Paced Courses

HTML5 & Self-Paced Courses

Have you heard the news?  We have finally released our new and improved Self-Paced Courses in HTML5! 

 Why is this important?

Take a look at this quick overview of how this technological upgrade from Flash to HTML5 will further benefit your families experience with Veritas Press’s Self-Paced Courses:

  • Support for iPad users!  Finally! 
  • Performance improvements in the interactive functions of the courses.
  • Higher quality of experiences and interactivity with the games/activities within the courses.
  • Less bugginess to the courses.
  • Better systems compatibility as HTML5 is more widely supported, whereas Flash is being widely deprecated by many operating systems.

For the parents that care about the details of the technology, HTML5 is a programming language and the acronym stands for HyperText Markup Language, it is used to present and structure the content for the web.  It also has a built-in ability to play audio and video smoothly, making content like that of our Self-Paced Courses far more stable in online delivery.

We made these technology improvements in an effort to continue in our pursuit of delivering the best online experience that we can for families using Self-Paced Courses in their homeschooling efforts.

Lastly, an important thing to know is that the content of the courses themselves have not changed. This upgrade was strictly to improve the overall performance of the courses. This means that all of your favorite, award-winning lessons haven’t changed!  

If you have any further questions about the recent upgrades to the courses, please do not hesitate to contact our service department.  And, if you are considering adding Self-Paced Courses to your student’s studies, contact us as well!
