    Although much of the work that I do requires 32-bit MSIE and a Windows operating system, more and more companies are releasing very nice, controlled video training via HTML 5 that will work just fine on the iPad and its identifying itself as Safari.

    I have yet to see any interactive training that is appropriate to use on an iPad, but I am sure it is right around the corner.

    It seems to me that any training delivered via iPad would be every bit as effective as training offered via PC or Mac, and it would have the added advantage of being very portable.

    Do you want to tell us more about the kind of training you're envisioning?

    My company uses Brainshark for training.

    Mobile users can access the training vids - iPad, Blackberry, iPhone, etc

    THanks for your response. Do you have any real experiences of taking a training on iPad while being mobile? How would you compare the experience with training on a laptop / iMac?

    I knew the iPad was kind of heavy but not that much!

    The iPad has caught the imagination of several agencies in the federal government, and there are many non-interactive training sessions available, and I have successfully used many of them.

    How would you compare the experience with training on a laptop / iMac?
    Until the iPad, we haven't really targeted anything toward Apple in particular, because most of us have to carry some kind of Windows machine which must have an Intel processor and 32-bit secure MSIE in order to connect to our servers from the field.

    The iPad has opened many opportunities, and the portability and ease of use make it almost irresistible for the programmers.

    But...I'm still not sure what it is you are trying to do and I might presume to suggest that your biggest problem is not going to be the suitability of the iPad platform. Your biggest problem is going to be finding the HTML 5 video, or finding somebody who will design the programme for you.

    If you have this capability, then I think the iPad would work tremendously well for carrying around your training with you, being able to show the training to agents or employees in the field, or being able to easily watch a session from your hotel desk or hotel bed, or even in your car while you're waiting for somebody to finish his report and mail it to you.

    I'm a huge, huge fan of the iPad and its capabilities. :-)
