HTML5 is the new standard in ALL web development. Want to develop websites for desktop browsers… HTML5. Want to develop mobile applications for the iPhone, iPad, Android phone, Tablets, etc… HTML5. With the rejection of Flash applications for the Apple iOS platform HTML5 has been designated as its replacement.
This course is for those that are interested in continuing their website development education by staying on the cutting edge. If you already understand the basics of web development but need to learn about the new features and capabilities of HTML5 to stay competitive then this course is for you.
Dynamic Page Effects
Before HTML5 such dynamic actions such as date pickers on forms, form field validation and time spinners had to be manually coded. This would often require dozens, if not hundreds of lines of code to implement. Now they are native features one cam implement with a simple HTML tag or attribute. Hundreds of lines of code have been reduced to one.
HTML5 is often touted as a contender for the online multimedia content crown, long held by Flash. The new audio and video elements are the reason—they provide native, scriptable containers for your media without relying on a third-party plugin like Flash.

Geolocation, Offline Web Apps, and Web Storage
Geolocation is a feature used in mobile applications when it’s important to know the users physical location. Think social applications like FourSquare where you want to share your location with friends.
Offline Web Apps and Web Storage allow you to build websites that can be disconnected from the web. That means that your website can work just as well on the ground as it does on an airplane or a mountaintop. An example of this could be a contact management applications where your sales agents need to access their contacts but don’t have an internet connection.
Native Drag-and-Drop Support
Before HTML5 the ability to drag and drop files or pictures onto your browser from your desktop required special browser plug-ins and a tremendous amount of code. Now, in HTML5 this capability is natively supported in the browser. An example of this could be a picture editing website where you can drag-and-drop your vacation pictures onto the browser workspace and edit it on the spot. There’s no need to install separate software to edit the picture. It’s all done in one website application.
