“…we are shattering boundaries by vitrualizing our learning to provide training whenever and wherever our clients demand.” Matt Casey PhD, Vice President of Content for RedVector
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) April 12, 2012
RedVector.com, the leader in online continuing education and corporate training for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry, announced recently that all newly developed courses will be mobile-ready and accessible for smartphone and tablet users—an improvement that began earlier this year and is intended to meet the needs of today’s mobile audience.
In the past, RedVector courses were created mainly using the Adobe® Flash® multimedia platform, which was incompatible with certain mobile devices such as the Apple® iPad. Around the same time Adobe transitioned from Flash to mobile, RedVector converted to a more user-friendly format delivering interactivities in HTML 4 format, which was compatible with mobile digital devices.
“While the eLearning industry was undecided about the future of Flash, we moved ahead researching and prototyping options for course development without Flash,” says RedVector Vice President of Content Matt Casey, PhD. “Now we’re creating courses in formats that optimize based on the browser to ensure interaction regardless of whether users have a mouse or a touchscreen device. As our clients are busy designing and maintaining physical structures we are shattering boundaries by vitrualizing our learning to provide training whenever and wherever our clients demand.”
Currently there are nine mobile-ready courses available through RedVector, and new courses will be made available monthly to help industry professionals complete required CE and as well as simplify company-wide training for AEC firms. RedVector will also begin updating existing courses based on popularity and user feedback.
“Today it’s all about being a lifelong learner,” says Scott Roan, vice president of IT for RedVector. “The student of yesterday was behind a desk, but now it’s all about mobile technology—taking your work, your education, your life with you wherever you go and making things easily accessible anytime, anywhere. Providing mobile access to our courses allows us to deliver the maximum flexibility in the most ideal format for our users in order to accommodate their needs and further advance the power of education.”
