It’s time to say goodbye to Adobe Flash for good.
In light of its dwindling functionality, lack of cross-device compatibility and prevailing security concerns, Adobe Flash has recently been dubbed as an outdated standard for web animation by Adobe itself, (finally).
Despite its depreciation in popularity by the web community at large and its track record of causing eLearning courses to load slowly and to perform only on desktops or PC’s, Flash-based courses are still as prevalent as ever in the eLearning community. In fact, many eLearning solution providers and eLearning developers are still selling or using course authoring software programs that create courses that either export to Flash or that are built using Flash technology—posing a challenge for organizations who want modern, mobile-friendly courses.
What does this mean for my Flash-based courses?
Now more than ever, organizations will be seeking the help of an experienced eLearning technology solution provider to help them convert hundreds of Flash-based courses utilizing modern, cross-browser/platform-friendly techniques efficiently and cost-effectively. Though, with many providers still leveraging Flash technology to build courses, organizations may find themselves in a bind.
Make sure you don’t get backed into a corner.
In addition to its Course Development software, Knowledge Anywhere offers customers a reliable method for mass course conversion by scouring the XML file from Flash-based courses and converting that file into a format that is compatible with Knowledge Anywhere’s Course Builder. All Flash-based animations are preserved and repurposed into HTML5 or video files so that the spirit of legacy course elements can be retained.
