Abstract
HTML5 is a brand new core technology markup-language of the Internet used for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web. HTML5 introduces application-programming interfaces (APIs) for complex web application. HTML5 offers power to develop interactive, cross browser, cross device application seamlessly. This new technology can provide a cost effective solution to implement applications to support education in rural areas by using various devices (e.g. personal computer, tablet, smart phone) without having to build different application for each type of devices. The purpose of this paper is to propose a certain design of HTML5 web applications to support education in rural areas.
