iPad is an amazing device that can deliver wonderfully rich, multimedia-based e-learning. However, iPad’s mobile Safari browser currently has inherent limitations that impact how multimedia appears and operates. We’ve developed the Articulate Mobile Player app to circumvent these limitations and provide learners with the best possible experience on iPad.
