Flash Forward to HTML5

Adobe Flash has a rich history in the software industry. It started a FutureWare, then evolved into Macromedia from 1996 to 2005, and from 2005 till recently, a product within Adobe Systems. Adobe has announced that as of December 31, 2020, they will no longer support the software or the Flash Player. They have been discussing this over the past few years. One of the issues this brings to the Learning and Development field is that many of the courses that have been created over the last two decades plus were created to perform in the Flash Player. With no support, those courses will start to lose functionality and support. As the L&D world transitions over to the world of HTML5, this leaves a short time frame in which millions of courses produced in the Flash format will need to be curated. Decisions will need to be made to let some courses disappear, choose to update some courses to be HTML5 compatible, or to rewrite courses altogether and reproduce them as a new course. For some, there may only be one option to choose from in this process.

As we move closer to that date at the end of 2020, we have put together a few complementary webinars that can help you with this transition. Each webinar will focus on a different aspect of how you can meet this transition head on with your company and move into the HTML5 era. Once the session is over, you can then register and watch the recording if you miss it live. Click on any of the titles to register for free.
