Thank you for the recommendation. Our team has considered a mobile application, and if one is developed, we will share the details with our community. In the meantime, please note that the Learning Subscription is optimized for mobile viewing, and this includes our videos. We do not recommend working in our labs on a mobile device, but the training content itself is optimized for mobile viewing. 

@Mher @PatrickRE Can you please provide any specific features you would find valuable in a mobile application? 

  • Offline video?
  • Push notifications?
  • Mobile-specific content?
  • Social engagement? 
  • Other?

I think your best bet is to reach out to the Red Hat Learning Team -> https://www.redhat.com/en/services/training-and-certification/contact-us

Wow super!
I would like to see offline video (possibly different quality's for different sizes of devices)
Propably also looking into ebooks would also be nice on the way or just the download feature from it.
What ideas do you have for the other 3 topics you mentioned?
I think the mobile (offline) viewing have the highest priority and when these is supported it should be released, other features could came after that. Don't forget the possibility to mass download a whole course, so you don't have to click on any video...
Also a possibility would be giving the transcripts from the video.

Thanks In advance!

Great feedback, thank you. A mobile application could set itself apart from simply a mobile-optimized website with just some of those items listed:

  • Push notifications - Alerts for users about new content, new features, or potential scheduling of training goals.
  • Mobile-specific content - videos and documents optimized for training "on the go"
  • Social engagement - mobile-optimized integration with RHLC to work closely with cohorts

These are just a few ideas, but I welcome any more that our users would find valuable as part of design discussions.

Hi is there any information about the state of the app development? I'm camping now the next 4 weeks and it would be cool to download a few videos when I'm in reach of the access point I would also be happy with a beta version for testing and giving input greetings Pat

Hi @cschunke 

Thanks for your response. I would also love to at least watch the videos Offline. For example, last weekend, I spent 12 hours on the plane, and I could watch the videos Offline had I have the mobile app luxury.

Unfortunately there's no updates at this time. We appreciate your enthusiasm for an RHLS App, specifically for viewing videos offline. When there are beta testing opportunities, we will be sure to announce them in the community.
