The guys at Google Labs have just released this great tool to enable SWF files to be converted into HTML5 format, which means that flash videos can now be played on i-devices such as ipod touch, iphone and ipad. What is really cool however is that as part of the service a QR code is created so that these self same devices can scan the code and link to the resource to be viewed immediately as a test, the link only lasts 15 minutes however.  Once you have ascertained that the conversion has worked, you can download the new HTML5 file and then upload it to your chosen site. This will prove to be invaluable in an e-learning situation. I am now going go away and devise some scenarios where this facility can be used efficiently.

Check out the QR code I have created, using the AddThis plug in for Firefox, above and play the SWF animation on your i-device courtesy of the HTML5 conversion.
