Mobile devices include smartphones, tablets, net-books, laptops, etc. People on the go can spend waiting time learning. This is becoming an important feature both in the corporate and education markets.

The smaller screens and different features place constraints on what can be done on mobile devices. Most involve just-in-time performance support, doing assessments, etc. Apple’s mobile devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad) do not support Flash and HTML5 is quickly replacing Flash.
