Say Your Final Goodbyes to Flash

2020. It’s been quite a year.

But if there’s one 2020 curveball that shouldn’t be a surprise…it’s the end of Adobe® Flash.

As previously announced in July 2017, Adobe will stop distributing and updating Flash Player after December 31, 2020.

Is your training content ready? What impact will that have on your business, and how can you keep your training going once Flash is no longer supported?

Hopefully, you started preparing for this already. If you have any Flash elements in your training, you’ll need to update those courses and re-deploy them to your learners.

Updating eLearning Courses With Flash Content

Flash expert, James Kingsley, says there is no “magic Flash conversion tool” out there.

However, the good news is that if you have the source files for your training content, you can open those up in the latest version of your authoring tool and republish to HTML5. (James highly recommends doing another round of quality assurance (QA) before you start delivering the re-published course to learners, of course.)

If the courses still work “okay,” can you just leave the old Flash content in? Well… we don’t recommend that. You open yourself up to a lot of risks if you leave old, broken training up for your organisation.

Risk Factors of Outdated Training
