HTML 5 – Heard of it Yet? You Have Now

Steve Jobs’ Thoughts

In 2010 Steve Jobs was quoted as saying, “Apple does not support flash because it is so buggy….whenever a Mac crashes more often than not it’s because of Flash. The world is moving to HTML 5.” At the same time these quotes were spoken, we were deep in thought about our new product – Conover Online. Our product development team was having preliminary conversations about how we wanted to build it. This pertinent quote was not the only thing that prompted us to build our programs in HTML 5, but as we saw the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch grab the market the way it did, we wanted to make sure that our product worked on iOS devices.

“Apple does not support flash because it is so buggy…whenever a Mac crashes, more often than not it’s because of flash. The world is moving to HTML 5.”

-Steve Jobs

What Exactly is HTML 5?

According to PC Magazine HTML 5 was designed to provide a comprehensive application development platform for web pages that eliminates the need to install third-party browser plug-ins such as Java or Flash. In other words, programs and web pages that were written in HTML 5 work without having to install any extra programs on your computer or device. This is great news because people generally don’t trust downloads and schools don’t let you download anything without administrative rights, so it becomes a hassle to use these extra programs and add-ons.

Where Conover Comes In

Product failure happens more often than not, when people get frustrated with the process involved in using the program rather than the program itself. We’ve eliminated all of the barriers and simplified the process so Conover Online works – period. It is web based so you don’t have to install anything, and your progress and results are saved in the cloud so you can stop and start anywhere on any device – even your iPad!

Conover Online in 3 Steps

  1. You purchase credits to get access to Conover Online
  2. Make assignments for users using those credits
  3. Generate results and documentation automatically, in real time

MECA, Personal Responsibility, Success Profiler and Functional Skills System have all been re-programed in HTML 5 and are available within Conover Online. We live in a world of accountability (at least we like to think we do) and it costs more to administer an assessment, score it, transfer the data and then interpret it than it does to spend $5 for a unit within Conover Online. Put simply, use Conover Online to focus on results rather than spending countless hours getting the results. Contact us today with any questions or to inquire about any of the programs in Conover Online!
