Web-based applications are a wonderful thing: They give you the ability to access your information anywhere, anytime, using any internet-enabled device. Take for example a web-based LMS, like eFront: You can access your learning content from work using your laptop, from your smartphone using a mobile network or from your tablet using your home’s wifi.
But there’s a catch: You need to have an active internet connection to actually use the application. No internet availability where you are? What a pitty, all this information you needed right now is unavailable.
