  • HTML5 Presentation Frameworks

    I believe that in the next 10 years, there will be a lot more progress and investments for the use of mobile technologies in education and healthcare. Working with students on a daily basis, I always feel the need to explore different/new areas which can make learning more fun and interesting.

    Today, I just come across some HTML5 presentation frameworks which look impressive. With HTML5, we can access the presentations anytime anywhere on multiple devices (desktop and mobile). It is also easier to store this on some server and distribute...
