Quick as a Flash

Posted By: eCom Scotland

Technology changes at quite a pace nowadays. This is usually a positive thing, although in the case of some excellent eLearning courses out there, changes in tech are having a negative impact!

Adobe Flash has been used to develop hundreds if not thousands of eLearning courses via tools such as Storyline and Captivate. The big issue is that flash will not be available by the end of 2020. This seems an age away, however people are already experiencing the negative effects of accessibility.

Accessible Everywhere Learning
Right now, if your course uses any Flash based content your learners can not access your material if they are using Microsoft Edge, Chrome or a mobile device. And in this day and age, your learners are expecting everything to be accessible everywhere. They watch TV on the go, and want to learn on the go!

Adobe are encouraging content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to a new format (normally HTML 5) that will last for many years.

What Are the Next Steps?
If you think that your eLearning might be utilising flash, ask our knowledgeable eCom eLearning team to give your content a complimentary ‘Quick as a Flash’ check. From this we can provide a one page report that will cover:

  • Confirmation if your course does use Flash files
  • Tips on how to progress – depending on the resources you have
  • Ideas for improvements

No need to reinvent the already good quality resources you have, although now may be a great time to review and revise your information?  Our excellent Instructional Designers can offer tips on how to structure this approach.
